It is certainly a well-known issue that lots of brushing in Lightroom will cause LR to slow down. Try doing the brushing in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
I use Lightroom for it's non-destructive editing and want to be able to go back and do some adjustments in the future when they improve upon Lightroom.
Adjustment brushes serve no purpose if they are not even usable.
Anyone have an idea on what I would need to upgrade in my computer to make it work faster? (system components listed above)
I'd say that you need faster CPU, as that is the only hardware that can cause a speed up of the performance on this issue, but it seems like you already have some pretty fast CPUs.
By the way, I use brushing all the time, a few brush strokes per image (some get zero brush strokes, some get maybe 5-10), and I don't have these lags. You are not the only person with a powerful system who is having these problems with brushing, but there are also people having reasonable performance for a small to moderate number of brush strokes. And what's the difference between people who have these problems and people who don't ... answer is usually the amount of brush strokes and the size of the image/size of the screen and the CPU. Since you have a fast CPU (actually two fast CPUs), again I suggest it is either the amount of brushing or the size of the image/size of the screen.
Thanks. dj_paige. I am sure I could double the speed of my CPU's, but still..... *sigh*
I have another question. If I used one adjustment brush pin on an image and did all the adjustments with one stroke of that brush, vs. 100 strokes, would it make a difference? I am guessing it shouldn't.
I believe that it would not make a difference.

Yes, a lot of people have this complaint, and as I said earlier, I think the best solution is to brush in Photoshop, but I understand your objection stated above and agree with you on this matter.
If I hadn't been so caught up in making adjustment brush masks, I would have realized that I could have done away with one of them and did all the adjustments for it how a person would normally do them in Lightroom. *sigh*
