I have a very similar machine and Lightroom was feeling slow for me too eventually. Re-installing Windows did the trick for me - a nice clean install not bogged down by other crap. Also, keep the catalogue small.. mine had almost 100,000 files, whereas the new one I created in blazing. I guess Lightroom is churning away loading all of those thumbnails and settings etc in the background.

Also consider removing presets that you don't use and using the "optimise catalogue" feature
