Some sites don't load in chrome on this one computer. IE, ok. Chrome on another computer on the same network, ok. This one, doesn't load or loads reeeaaalllllyyy slowly. Any suggestions?

Does Chrome need updating? It auto-updates, but only if it is properly closed and restarted from time to time.

My first instinct is always to look underneath to the next layer down, which in this case would mean finding a way to isolate the specific HTTP transaction that's behaving differently on the two machines, and see if it looks as if it's sending the same request (suggesting that the server might be treating the two machines differently by its choice) or has some obvious difference (in which case that might be a clue as to how the two browsers are differently configured, e.g. a cookie or auth header present or absent).

This standard approach to debugging high-level problems often leads me on wild goose chases, but also it usually teaches me something interesting or useful about whatever it is I'm grobbling about in the guts of, whether or not I also find out the answer to the current problem :-)

Different OS, different proxy configuration, different layer 2 connectivity, different layer 3 connectivity (e.g. intercepting proxy), different add-ons, different cookies, ...?
