I'm looking at giving myself a Christmas gift of freshening up my PC. I don't want to break the bank right now and buy a whole new system but give my current system a refresh. I was thinking of upgrading from an i5 to an i7 processor and expanding the memory from 8GB to 16GB or 32.
In regards to the processor, I'd like to upgrade to something that's a simple compatible swap. I'm comfortable enough to open the computer up and swap processors but I don't want to get into the whole updating BIOS thing
Here's the specs I'm currently running
- Intel Core i5-6500 CPU @ 3.20GHz, 4 cores
- 8 GB RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti
I'd appreciate any thoughts, advice or input.
