Hi all, I've been out of the PC space for a few years now and I'm surprised how things have flown by, I don't know what anything is anymore! I have an 1156 CPU and some RAM kicking around, I couldn't believe it when I saw it was 8 years old! Then I looked at the age of my i5-2500k, 7 years! I fancy upgrading for the reliability, because I'm moving all my tech into a 19" rack (plan on going from mini ITX to mATX) and, you know, because I can. However, I don't have any problems with the speed of my PC and so I wonder if spending £400 on CPU, motherboard and RAM I would see any benefit in my day to day? I use my PC for electronics work so programs like Eagle which are quite lightweight, Fusion 360 and Quartus. Part of this thread was to demonstrate my age perhaps! But I am interested, I can't believe my PC is that old and still going fine.
