Aperture painfully slow

I just switched from LR to the most recent version of Aperture.

Using an older Imac 2.6 GH with 3GB of RAM and Lion OS

All photos are held on external USB HD's.

After importing 550 Gb's of photos, Aperture is very slow. Moving sliders can take 30 seconds per adjustment, browsing about the same per photo.

Have I set something incorrectly within Aperture or do I need a brand new computer?
