Re: Building a pc thoughts

Depends on what you aim to do with it but you would probably be alright with a dual core i3 haswell, it's a hair under 100 bucks new and would probably be the lowest one considered usable, 1150 is a dead socket though probably going to be obsolete in 5 years or less so you might find some deals on used parts for that on ebay.

Re: Building a pc thoughts

Reviews state it supports Gen 4 or 5 Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors. I have several Dell PCs - two with i5s and one with i7. Windows 7 on one i5. Windows 10 on one i5 and the i7 - Windows 10 seems to run faster on the i5 than the i7, both with 16GB of RAM. But that's just my experience.

Re: Building a pc thoughts

After several Dell's, and getting tired with help online or via phone whenever I had a problem, I found a local computer tech company, and I had them build a new computer for me with the latest software. They also took all the data from two old computers and installed those files & photos on the new computer. I have plenty of memory and have a continuous backup as well. All of that work, including a one year warranty for anything was well worth the $1,454. It's also nice to know I can get help & upgrades when needed for reasonable cost.

Re: Building a pc thoughts

Hey Bandit, I notice you post a lot of PC issues here that often don't get resolved here. Not saying this isn't a good site but It's probably not the best place to get answers to your questions. I would recommend that you could get better help by going to such places as, https://linustechtips.com/main/ or https://forums.tomshardware.com/ you would find better answers at those places.

Re: Building a pc thoughts

Just wondering why you chose that particular motherboard. I would personally stay away from the Core i3 processors - just not worth the investment. If you can find a similar motherboard (ATX) that utilizes an AMD AM4 socket, you can get more bang for your buck with a Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 processor.

One thing to keep in mind is if you can install anything other than a factory motherboard in that HP computer case - it may not have the proper riser/screw pattern for a regular ATX motherboard. You also need to be sure that it doesn't have a micro ATX board in it now, and that it utilizes a regular power supply (many HP desktops use proprietary power plugs on the motherboard, so that you can only use their power supply with their motherboard).

If you stick with the Intel board, don't pass on a used processor (I have used them many times in the past). You will have to source a heat sink/cooling fan, but the stock ones are usually very cheap and everywhere.
