5 year old intel setup: i5 3470 with a dying real intel socket 1155 LGA mobo. The sound IO has already gone and I am down to one RAM slot (using one 8gb DDR) of 4 still working. It is almost dead. I am using a relatively new GTX 750 Ti in it, which still rocks. Got a 500gb SSD running on it
- Use a site like pcexpress.co.za to make something like this:
Slot in my 750 Ti
Slot in my 500gb SSD with its win 10 installation, which is linked to my MS account, and run as is, no reinstallation of windows 10. According to this:
it can work.
- Is that actually an upgrade? Will it work faster than my old i5?
- Am I crazy to attempt no reinstallation of win 10?
- Is it a good price?
- What would you change, given the price range of R6k-R7k?
