CPU Requirements for solidworks


hi all i new to this

i running 2010 solidworks 64 bit and i thought i had a powerful computer until i got larger files to view
the cpu has intel core2 quad core processor, 4 gb ram, and 64 bit op system.

i recently went about open files and it takes an age to open then, last nite i was saving a file that was 6MB and it took nearly five mins to open,
i dont think the problem is ram or graphics card as when it is open the graphics are rewally quick.

what suggestion would ye make to improve this?
