Upgrade 2020 - Oldschool PROSUMER Request
Two Simple questions:
1. Should I upgrade my current hardware for Windows 10?
2. If I should upgrade, should I just buy a pre-built rig at this point in hardware/offerings from companies?
I am upgrading for no reason other than to Windows 10 for future decades worth of software/platform. Seeing as how my system performs nominally or better with current setup I question whether I need hardware upgrades or not.
Games = 1-4 hours a week if that
Software = runs pletny fast
Editing/Photo/Video - light at best usage
i7-960 @ 4.1Ghz (Bloomfield)
ASUS Rampage III Formula x58 Mobo
16GB RAM (clocked @ 1666 x triple channel, Samsung Miracle RAM from the era)
XFX RX480 OC 8GB
1GB Samsung EVO SSD + fast 6GB drives/ 3GB SATA drives
Windows 7 (fully updated)
On second question (should I buy pre-built):
1. I don't have nearly as much time as I used to with my current job / current company growth mode (heavy/fast paced and I'm lead person on this)
2. I have not bought a pre-built PC since 1990 and hadn't expected to since 2004; however I'm older now (much) and question offerings to be pretty good in comparison (much better than 1999-2009).
