    I agree an SSD and RAM make the most difference. You can also repair your disk permissions as well as use a clean up tool (these remove space but don't necessarily free up tons performance).

    Unfortunately, I believe Sierra is more optimized for more modern macs. Apple and pretty much any hardware manufacturer does this on purpose to get you to buy next gen stuff which is a bummer but the way of the world as new faster and more optimized hardware is produced.

    I have a first gen Mac Pro sitting in my closet simply because I can only upgrade as far as OSX Lion. sucks!
