    All systems depreciate soon after you buy them.

    If your system works and you are happy then send Microsoft to the infernal regions!

    Nawh, it's better to upgrade than to just waste money ona new computer. Unless it's broken beyond repair/knowledge, or that the parts are too old for new tasks. Even if I had money to spend, I wouldn't just buy a new computer impulsively. And I still can't believe we're still on about SSD Vs HDD. HDD is only good for storage, not day-to-day tasks.

    Is your older computer keeping up with what you want to do? If not, look at these simple tips to help you find a new computer so you can do more of what you want and what you love.

    The irony is that I first read this page on a decade-old laptop that I picked up for 70 (about $87) after which I got on with some serious video editing.....

    OMG We have 8 networked computers in our household all running i5 3rd generation or less, what am I to do?

    What a silly article, nothing more than a sales pitch. I suppose if you are a hard core PC gamer maybe, or heavy duty video editor maybe, but I suspect the average Joe watches a Netflix or two, reads emails and online banking.

    Thinking of all the people I know, none of them need a Indie 500 racer to travel their daily lives, so it is with their computers.

    Well my Older I7 7700 System in my Asus G11CD-K i upgraded that tower as much as i could prior to deciding well do need a new case as this one keeps overheating, the exhaust air and intake stinked on that case. Then while in the shop was informed they couldn't transfer the Input/Output shield from old case.

    A i could've transferred all the old componets with out it to my new picked out case, saving money.
    B. Opt for a new motherboard/cpu, and reuse as much of old components as i could, decided to do B, and got an Intel I7 10700, Gigabyte B460M-DS3H motherboard, 4 new fans, Thermaltake V200 case, final cost 474.82 after all said and done, including trade in of old motherboard/and processor

    New Case water cooling capable should i get brave in a year or two, and decide to upgrade from Newer Intel Stock Heatsink for LGA 1200 Processors, to AIO water cooling, though i heard those only last max 4 years before having to change, so i may just stick to Air cooling lol

    I have 3 computers:
    1 Computer Home build 8 years old with Intel quad core / Asus mobo / Nvidia GT240 (Works fine so far with Windows 10 1909)
    1 Computer Acer Aspire C24 - 760 2 years old (Works fine now after reinstalling 2004 because it was bad after the automatic 2004 install
    1 Computer Home build 1/2 year old with Intel I7 / Asus Mobo / Nvidia GT1050Ti / 32 Mb / 500Mb SSD (This one is not working well after Windows 2004 upgrade, with all kind of mysterious and strange annoying symptoms / errors.

    So newer is not better in my case.

    I haven't had an outright new desktop PC since 1992. I've built all my own since then and have upgraded parts along the way rather than buying all new at any point. The greatest changes in one swoop have been new motherboard, CPU and memory. A big plus in doing things that way is there are usually enough spare parts on hand to build another system if needed. I have a backup to my main PC plus 2 boxes used for Dev and Beta Insider Preview that are made up of hand-me-down parts.

    I have two computers, a new one I built in November 2019 (Ryzen 3900x) and my older skylake system that was the main pc is now in a new case. I tend to use my older one for work and new one for gaming. The old one has had far fewer problems than the other one. On the main one I've had to replace the motherboard once and the ram thrice (AMD compatibility).

    You mean insurance didn't get you a new truck?

    I can sympathize with you though. I'm rebuilding my 2013 Ford Fusion from the bottom up. Not by choice but by necessity.
    I don't want more car payments so I keep tossing smaller amounts at it to keep it running and safe.

    Brakes this time at $450. Last was AC which I can't live without here in Fla, another $375.
    The 2007 GMC is my truck. Once I get the title I can get the check from my insurance
