Just another suggestion post passing by

Hey there. Thanks for looking into my post.

 

Straight to the point so I don't waste a lot of your time (actually by letting you read this, I've already)

 

I have an aging but still working i5-4570 processor which is celebrating its 5th year today and I'm looking to replace it with i7-8700.

It seems to be a good value processor. Now, I am hunting for good value motherboards too which I happen to find ASUS TUF H310, a $100 mobo.

In terms of RAM, I'm gonna stick with 2666 Mhz or go with 3200 and buy another mobo instead. I honestly don't have any plans yet. :(

 

If you're wondering what stuff I do in my computer, I play MOBA, write some software here and there and  that's pretty much it.

 

Is this upgrade worth it or should I just keep my gear? Open for other suggestions. 

 

Thank you :)

 

EDIT:

I'm also looking at ASUS Strix Z370-G and ASUS Prime Z370-A.

H310 motherboards are generally underequipped for something so nice as an i7. Look into a B360 or even H370 which will both have many more features and better power delivery.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Depends on what you need, the i5 should work great for what your doing, but if you feel you need the upgrade, go for it

I am faster than 80% of all snakes

motherboard: GIGABYTE 970 (am3+)

RAM: 16gb ddr3 adata

gpu: AMD xfx rx 560 2gb

ASUS STRIX H370-F GAMING seems like a good value worth less than $200. I'll consider that. Thank you!

Interesting take. Yeah, but noticed some slow down in my computer recently. Maybe because I haven't formatted my computer in like 3 years?? LOL

Do you have an SSD? A PC starts to feel sluggish these days with just a hard drive

Sorry I didn't mention. Yeah, I had the first gen Samsung 850 evo. I think he's getting old too :(
