Custom built rig:

Win 7 64bit
i7-960 running at 4.16Ghz  x4/8HT
24 GB RAM
Samsung 830 256GB SSD
nVidia 460GTX

CS5 runs just fine no issues... LR4 run like a Dog...  I am out of ideas how to speed up LR4 apart from switching off the HT cores.

How are you running LR4 regarding your libraries? I find that I create a Library for each event or job that I do keeps it pretty speedy. When I first started using LR4 I used to keep everything in one library and keyword like crazy but that started to bog the system down. I took some advice from Scott Kelby and started breaking down my Library by event and it sped things up for me.

 - Gigabyte Mobo.
- C2D E6600 Dual Core Oc'ed to 3.16ghz. Big zalman Heatsink.  ;D
 - 4x 7200 RPM 500GB drives in RAID 0+1.
 - Nvidia GTX 660 Ti - Was previous 8800 GTS but died recently.
 - Two Dell 24" IPS Ultrasharps
 - 8 GB of DDR2 800.
 - Win 7 Pro
 
My base machine was built by me in late 2006 and Continues to kick butt. Only the Graphics card died a few months back but It's been a rock since I built it. It edits my 5D3 files quickly and I haven't been able to slow it down. (then again I don't do video) My machine is probably the most under-spec'ed machine here but I only use ID, CS3, and LR4.

When it dies, I'll build a new one, which can be a long time. Speaking of which, Who here uses their machines until they die?

Photoshop works smooth most of the time. If i have too many images open at the same time, it slows down a bit.
