    This might give you a rough idea I guess.

    He mentioned fallout 4 (older aaa game) and elder scrolls 6 (not yet released aaa game). For non-gaming standard stuff a GPU is not even needed.  The intel cpu has a low end gpu inside it which should be enough for non gaming tasks.  If no discrete gpu is used and gaming is abandoned the PSU probably doesn’t even need to be upgraded.  Just add storage, peripherals and a case.

    Hups, I linked wrong item into memory it seems.
    "Kingston 16GB (2 x 8GB) HyperX Fury, DDR4 3200MHz, CL16, 1.35V, black" is text in onlinestore, so smart me just looked exact price and picked that from System Builder instead of reading what I added... All good now.
    I will upgreade that CPU cooler into Pro version. Thank you for noticing that.

    I did it on July 30th with a Dell OEM license for Windows 7 Pro and it worked. Windows version was 1903. But since then I had one OEM license not work and I could not really figure out why. But generally it should work.

    Not to mention that he's not even using a K processor. IMHO paying for overclocking features that you can't use seems like a waste of $$$.

    I work as an IT intern and these were going to be thrown away. The parts are better than my gaming PC currently so I wanted an upgrade. Mostly gaming but will need it on the side for coding/programming.

    Get SSDs for you current rigs.
    I have several computers here in the office running Office 2016 and Windows 10.  Specifically on Dell Optiplex 3010s (i3-3240 + 2x4GB RAM + 250GB SATA HDD) and they're a bit clunky with browsing and using Office 2016.

    IMHO an SSD upgrade should give it a boost in performance.

    You can still get the free upgrade they don't advertise it anywhere but if you have a windows 7/8/8.1 key lying around you can use it when it asks for windows 10 I've just did a upgrade on my windows 7 PC and windows 8 PC one last night and one tonight

    grss1982 got a reaction from LogicalDrm in Windows 7 home premium(32-bit) reactivation help.   
    Not exactly. Discontinued as described by Microsoft is when the product is officially not anymore supported i.e. Windows XP and Windows Vista or Office 2007.  IIRC support for Windows 7 will end early next year.
    My contacts inform me that the replacement key process is still in place but at it's up to the MS technician to offer. You can't just ask for it when contacting.

    You can build new, yes, but you might get better value by going with a used Office PC, like the Dell Optiplex 3010, 3020, 9010 or 9020 or HP Prodesk 400G1/G2. They are all easy to upgrade and can be had for $100-150 depending on the market. That'll net you anything from a Pentium to an i5, 4-8GB of RAM. Just add a SSD and you're set.

    What does that mean? You should be able to boot to USB regardless of what you are going to install it onto. If you have another drive to try with, use that.

    grss1982 got a reaction from GovHealthcare in Mobo box with all spare parts from my build thrown out - what am I missing?   
    The box for those items. 
    Usually my tendency is if there's an extra sata cable  or two from the motherboard box I keep it there. Same with brackets and screws in a case, I keep it in the box that it came with. So too for the video card if it had some special connectors and such.

    As others have mentioned, your setup is still good for gaming but it depends on the games you play and at what resolution.  A GPU upgrade should boost performance.
    Also used DDR3 is quite cheap nowadays might be a good idea to grab yourself 16GB of RAM or more.
    Cheap used i7 could also be an option.

    grss1982 got a reaction from Turtle Rig in Upgrade Time   
    A Ryzen processor, more RAM,  an SSD and a new video card.
    But that depends on the use case of this PC i.e. is it for gaming or a little of both gaming and non-gaming use.
    Also, any particular reason why he wants to upgrade? If it's just for the sake of upgrading might as well save the money.
     He's already Ryzen ready. Why a new CPU and mobo? Is the mobo just that bad?
