Running Slow on Custom Built Machine

Both SW 2015 and 2016 are running slow.  I mean VERY slow.  I'm pretty sure it is a video card issue because when I run the Task Manager my computer is using less than 10% of its processing power but my screen still locks up.  I have matched my graphics card driver with the recommended driver from the SolidWorks website.  The computer is a custom build with a Quadro k620 video card, a 1TB hard drive, 16gb of ram and the processor is AMD FX-8320.  It is taking 5 to 7 seconds between every pick I make in a sketch and even longer to change sketch commands (eg. from line to arc...) Does anyone have any thoughts?

 

It did not seem to run as slow a few months ago.
