ok so I've been doing a lot of reading and I have an idea:
Instead of me passing my son the 2500k rig, what if I kept it and just built him a Pentium g4600 rig?
I sold his core2 rig (cpu, ram, mobo) for $200.
I can purchase a G4600 with mobo and 1 8gb stick for $222. I can pair it with a gtx1050 and he should be good right?
That would buy me some time to see how Coffee Lake pans out and then make a decision from there. I could always then give him the 2500k rig or use either of them for a HTPC build. The only game we play is World of Warcraft and other than that he just watches youtube and stuff.
What do you guys think of that? Worth messing with?
Edit: if not a g4600 build, I could do a ryzen 3 1200 build for a little bit more $$ about $40ish to be exactEdited by kegger - 11/19/17 at 11:50pm
