BIOS/UEFI help

Hi, I've finally assembled my first build. Took me a couple weeks to get everything up and running but it isn't running like a $3,000 computer. It takes several minutes to boot up and the lag is awful. I don't know if it's the operating system I downloaded off Microsoft onto my USB or if it's the BIOS/UEFI that needs some adjustment. There are overwhelming amount of guides on BIOS/UEFI I couldn't narrow down. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated! Millions thanks!

Mainly Solidworks and possibly Mastercam, for now. I probably should let you know that the build isn't for gaming.

What I'm seeing under start up in the Task Manager: Java Update Scheduler Microsoft OneDrive RealTek HD audio Manager Windows Defender notification icon

They're all enabled and not measured.

I just activated XMP in BIOS and now I'm installing Nvidia driver update. Hope they'll help run things a little better.

No problem. Is there anything else I should try?
