I don't have to piece together anything from PC Partspicker.

I am now the proud owner of a new gaming rig :)

It's all AMD, which goes against everything I have trained myself to believe since I had a Win 3.1 machine back in the day.

I was in search of an i5 or better with an nVidia card. Instead..... I went to the dark side.

Got a six core with a Sapphire RX470

Saw it on the internet this morning at a place called OfferUp and the dude lived 25 minutes away. We both agreed to meet half way and I by-passed the offerup site and threw cash in his hands.

The card is a few years old, but everything else is brand new. I am using it right now to type this. It does have Win 10 Home on it, and I think I will take Kevster and RocketJedi's recommendation and roll with it. I will have to locate the corporate edition of Win 10, though. To go from Win 7 Ultimate edition to this..... almost makes me want to put Ubuntu Linux 18 on it..... almost.

See ya in the servers, Gentlemen.

If you have a key you may be able to change it. good luck with your new system. I think by next winter I may be building a new system.

I heard from the grapevine, that RJ is looking to build a kickass 386 SX machine. I'm told, he doesn't like the math co-processor. LOL :laugh
