    First things first, right?
    Plus prices have nowhere to go but down (if you stick with the same hardware specs and brand).

    Yes, I would rather live with the current system than rush into buying parts for the heck of it. And next year I hope to put aside about 30-40 a month to save up for a real good Intel processor and a great motherboard for it. Like this:
    Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz)
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KPRWAX8/..._t2_B007SZ0EOW

    Motherboard: ASUS Z97-A ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1150 Motherboards Z97-A

    Should be a great system! I'm thinking about building my next computer instead of buying OEM . It won't be for a while though. The wife wasn't happy about me buying the system I have now. She changed her mind when I told her I was donating my old computer to our son. He had a old laptop and the desktop I gave him was a big step up.

    I find that a DIY PC to be the best because you picked the parts that go into it. Oh and I use this site to help simplify the process: System Build - PCPartPicker An AMD build would be great for everyday use and much cheaper in the long run. Intel does make better processors but the price is much higher.

    That's one of the things I miss about going to computer fairs. They would custom build your PC while you shopped around. Only once did I have to go to the vendors shop to pickup my PC the next day. It was late and they didn't have time to assemble it.

    I like starting with a basic computer and upgrading it one or two parts at a time. When I'm done it's a completely different computer . By the time I have it they way I want it I'm ready to start over. I usually will give my old computers to someone in my family. Before I do I delete all my programs and secure erase all my personal files. The computer I have now I have done just about everything I can do to it. I replaced the HDD with a SSD. I've added two extra HDDs. I've replaced the DVD drive with a Blu-Ray drive. And I've upgraded the sound card and video card from the ones that are on board. HP wouldn't recognize it.
