My 7 years old computer broke down :(

Finally I have a good reason for buying a new computer. It will have twice as much RAM, SSD drive will be more than 4 times the size of the old one, processor will be 5 generations newer and the graphic card will have 3 times more video memory.

    So is it 2*4*3+5 = 29 times better than old one? Is my math correct?

    @Jarand may it last as long or even longer than your old steed.

    Cool, but idk about the Kingston drive. I have not exactly a good experience with Kingston products.

    @hack Not sure if that's how it works, but I won't be sad if you're correct :D

    @lamka02sk My old computer had Kingston SSD as well and I never had any issues with it. Let's hope it continues like that:D

    Honestly, unless you are transferring tons of data on the drive you would be served just as well with a sata ssd. I ended up going with an 860 EVO at 1TB. The m.2 version would have been $100 more. It has been plenty fast with sustained transfer rates of 500MB/s. A lot of the other brands peter out and do not maintain a sustained transfer rate.

    @JhonDoe Has it gotten that much better? I had an AMD FX-8120 and it produced so much heat. I undervolted it to lower the heat.

    @Demolishun yes, they are totally better now, I heard about the fx being a heat beasts 🤣

    TDP has improved a lot and performance is nicely

    @JhonDoe I have a i7-8750 lappy I got a while back. It runs really well. A month ago I got a cheapo AMD lappy ($440, nor $520) and it runs modded minecraft really well. I think its a Ryzen 3000 or something. It has a crappy vega 3 though.

    @Demolishun that's true too, in the laptop market they improved a lot, I had a hands on a A12 laptop and my core i7 5500u was a lot better. Lately I bought a ryzen 5 lappy for my sista, and well, they seems tooo much better now for amd

    I am taping into your blessing because my machine is 8 years old and beginning to groan under 8GB RAM/ 500GB HDD and I am too broke to afford a high powered pc 😭

    @JhonDoe LOL, I just gave someone my old A8 laptop. It worked well for what I needed, but man it could not play any decent games.

    AMD was awesome in the Athlon eara. They invented 64 bit x86 instruction set than too. When Intel came out with the core 2 duo etc it was all Intel again. AMD didn't do anything to compete with Intel. Now with the Ryzen line they are way ahead of Intel again. Top of the line processors that cost a third or fourth of Intels but comparable performance. I think there next gen is going to even further the gap. So yeah AMD is the way to go now.
