Hi all,

 

New poster but long time fan. I need advise I have a home pc with the following specs in a antec 900 full tower. It was built in 2001 and Im no expert but I did do it after lots of reading here. Anyway we do some video and picture editing and really no gaming and wont overclock. I do want to upgrade the system and this started with me wanting to add a bigger ssd H/D. I figure if im in there I may want to swap ot processor and MB. I do want a good machine that I can push to the limits if needed.

 

Looking at my specs can you give me opinions on good MB and processor and whatever else I need. I have no problem buying what I need so Im not on a specific budget. Just updating a good home unit. I will use it for Video and audio and pictures mainly.

Bigger SSD helps. Also I see no reason to swap CPU/MB unless you are planning to invest at least around 800 dollars. Overclock that CPU and it will be on par with any Intel quad core.

 

You can also list shops where you can buy parts, easier to recommend.

What do you mean saying "future proof"? No LGA1151 motherboard is "future proof" if considering CPU upgrade. Leaving that out of question, almost any LGA1151 motherboard with M.2 slot can be considered "future proof".

 

I still see no sense buying only marginally better CPU. If you want real upgrade, then i7-5820K is slowest CPU I would consider.

So you decided to make bigger upgrade? Thre are plenty LGA2011-3 motherboards. For example Asus X99-A is quite cheap and has good features.

 

You will need also DDR4 memory and CPU cooler, so it will cost quite lot.

 

Current M.2 SSD's have overheating problems so I would stick with SATA SSD's for a while.

 

What PSU you have?

 

So you need something like http://pcpartpicker.com/p/D99gYJ

 

There are many choices for memory and cooler.
