I am a senior citizen/retiree who has built every (desktop) computer I've owned after my initial IBM PC clone purchase in the mid-80s. Currently running an Athlon II X4-640 on a 7 year old Gigabyte mobo with AMD 780G chipset and 8GB RAM. Running Windows 10 (clean install to a Crucial SSD).
Thinking about upgrading to something more current, either an Intel Haswell or Skylake CPU (probably a Pentium G3258 or G4400) or an AMD A88X chipset with an A8-7600 APU. My main computer use is internet browsing, email, light spreadsheets and word processing and occasionally ripping a DVD for my wife's Android tablet so I don't really need any more computing power than I currently have. I don't play games or watch anything longer than a YouTube video. Always been an AMD guy but Intel seems to have a lot more offerings and I like that, in general, Intel chips use less power than the equivalent performance models from AMD.
I have been a long-time DSLReports user but this forum seems more active so I'll be hanging around here more when I have questions.
