Good afternoon all..
i am ready to upgrade my PC again.... ..and am hoping you can offer some guidance
Last time i did it was 6 years ago and all has been well since then.
just last week video drops out on monitor intermittently, swapped the monitor, so suspecting the integrated graphics card on mobo...
I use the pc for email, web surfing and...thats kinda it..
connected house network CAT5e plans to upgrade to Cat 6 just cuz i have the cable.
I like Gigabyte, Corsair, AMD, and Western Digital, but am flexible , Have nice Antec Sonata case that id want to keep if possible.
here are the specs on the old pc...
ATX form factor
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 ver 1 (i noticed Gigabyte still sell this board now Ver6)
AMD Phenom II X4 960T
(2x4)8GB DDR3 667 (made Week 16/Year 2012)
Integrated ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics
24" HDMI Samsung monitor
2 WD 325GB caviar drives backing up to a 2TB WD Cloud
Windows 10 Pro x64
I'm ok with new MOBO combo and can install it myself...
used to be that there were several choices, now several hundred ..so I'm really kinda overwhelmed and thought I would ask you ladies and gentlemen for a bit
oh, in exchange I can offer advice on Stihl chainsaws, Yamaha grizzly ATV's and am
currently repairing electrical wiring on a Honda 1976 CB750..
I'm a retired technical sales guy, former Marine, did Avionics on F4-J's during the Vietnam war and can use a Fluke meter..
thoughts please, and thanks very much in advance
