Now I just need a patient tutor.
These are first hand accounts. Please don’t mistake “false information” for “people’s opinions of events as they encountered and perceived them.”
This project reminds me very much of Robert Yang’s Apollo 2. It was experimental, very moving, and tragically short. Excited to see where this one goes.
Thanks for your input. There’s a little thread up a ways where we talked about Tom’s. Would love your opinion there.
Good point. Some quick research into 1150’s is telling me there are only moderate gains in performance to be had.
Second hand CPUs though could be a great way to save some money on an upgrade.
I stick by what I said about upgrading CPUs as a concept though. The goal should be to use a MOBO for more than one chip if you can. I’ve got an 1155 MOBO myself, with an earlier 3xxx-class i5 than the ones in the builds here. But I’m not seeing it get taxed enough to warrant an upgrade as of yet.
My 560 Ti on the other hand is getting long in the tooth. I’ll be upgrading that hopefully by the end of the year.
Great information! That means we should be seeing some deals as the 1155 chips finish their lifecycle.
What would you recommend as a starting point for forward-thinking budget builders to replace the ASRock board and i5 I listed as part of my build?
I’ve heard a lot of good things about Senn’s. I just don’t have any direct experience with them.
