    You have monitors, do you need new ones?
    Ryzen 3rd Gen is out in June, that'll shift CPU prices around a lot. As a note.

    E8400 is faster on single core speed, but slower in multicore speed.

    Most of them will be changed a third of a year later, just ask later.

    SenKa reacted to Syntaxvgm in IS MY DELL 0JJW8N COMPATIBLE WITH A CORE 2 QUAD   
    If you really want to cut a hole, non prebuilt motherboards that have wide support are enspsive. Cheapest option is to get a motherboard pulled from a prebuilt. To ensure comparability, look for one that comes with a core 2 quad, like this one. They often pull and sell the 2 together. 

    Obviously there's probably cheaper options. You'll need a micro ATX size. 

    I still strongly suggest getting a used sandy or ivy system. Core 2 is long out of date, and has a lot of trouble running stuff, but sandy and ivy bridge still run a lot of newer games very well.

    one of the problems you'd run into here is the I/O shield is attachced, you'd have to go all jank and cut a hole. Also old motherboards can be expensive sometimes, depends on what you're getting, sometimes more than they were new. 

    This is the list of CPUs that Shipped with the 220 and 220s I think 
    N654J Wolfdale Dual Core E8600 3.33GHz
    D923J Wolfdale Dual Core E8500 3.16GHz
    06YMG Wolfdale Dual Core E7600 3.06GHz
    H399J Wolfdale Dual Core E8400 3.00GHz
    T116N Wolfdale Dual Core E7500 2.93GHz
    9HP6Y Wolfdale Dual Core E6300 2.80GHz
    Y442H Wolfdale Dual Core E7300 2.66GHz 
    YG8MC Wolfdale Dual Core E5200 2.50GHz
    K151N Wolfdale Dual Core E4700 2.80GHz
    Anything outside of those I doubt. 
    At that point, I'd just get a new used machine, there's a lot of dell optiplex towers that businesses dump on ebay, in the 100$ neighborhood you'd get a quad core i5 or i7 that's either sandy or ivy. Slap a 25$ SSD in there and it's a good machine. Get a regular tower not a thin one so you can put full height cards in there.

    Dell's will do that. I have worked on a few (specifically Foxconn boards), where they are definitely quad core supported but BIOS locked down (and any attempt to re-flash the BIOS with a stock one is to gets you told off by Dell's BIOS security for an unsigned BIOS)

    Xfx is fine. Only issue I see is it's a blower style so temps wont't be ideal

    SenKa got a reaction from Optane^ in Survey claims 86 percent of US teens plan to choose iPhone as next smartphone   
    As a life long Andorid user, I am one of those 86% who intend on using an iPhone as their next phone.
    Yes, iOS is more limited. But I have been experiencing the most annoying levels of instability on Android that from my research simply doesn't exist on iOS.
    I also use a MacBook (See bio for specs), which is hacked to Mojave. The integration between iOS and macOS is amazing, and as I transition from adolescent to adult the simple convenience of iOS is becoming more valuable than faffing around in Android settings trying to figure out why my phone is dying 5 hours before it did yesterday.
    I will always keep a windows machine for gaming, and I will game so long as I have time for it. But for any productivity oriented tasks? Apple has MS beat. And Microsoft created Windows as a business OS ?

    Ah balls, I didn't read your pricing.
    Get the newest HP Elitebook you can afford Ebay. Theyre built like tanks and can be spec'd pretty highly.

    Vivobook's, from my experience, have build quality issues.
    I would personally recommend an XPS 13, or Thinkpad X1 Extreme (The X1 Carbon is inconsistent at best, avoid it)

    SenKa reacted to dDave64 in Computer crashes and reboots   
    Agree, all of these are also worth looking at.
    You should be able to get a power supply tester (either hardware or software) that should show how the power delivery looks on your system. The numbers won't come out exact but you should get numbers in the range. Example 11.8v on the 12v rail.
    A kernel power error can also happen just from a system crash that caused the system to turn off, not necessarily tied to the PSU. I think it is worth investigating though.
