The time has come..

To retire this old PC. It’s been a good one, but it’s best days are behind it.

I mainly edit photos, and some of the videos of the motorcycle rides I go on, so something middle of the road should be a huge upgrade over this old and tired machine.

Not being in the loop for many years now, since selling my IT business in 2018, I needed to do a lot of research on what components I need to consider. A lot changes in 4 years!

I’ve never owned an AMD based PC. Always Intel. Maybe it’s time to try something new.

If USPS comes through, should have many packages of PC components arriving tomorrow!

Antec Mid-Tower ATX Chassis
EVGA 650 Watt PSU
Asus B550 -F ATX Mainboard
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU
G.Skill RipJaws V Series 64GB of RAM (2 32’S)
GTX 1050 TI 4GB Video Card
Going to continue using all 5 of my SSD Hard Drives and my current DVDR/W.
Going to see how the video looks with my current monitor, and if needed may pickup an ASUS 28 inch 4K LCD, with Display Port input.
Not a gamer. I use my PC as a tool, to make $$.
However this build should be well above my needs.

My system is dual boot of course. I don’t run emulators. Main OS is Linux, with a copy of Windoze 10 64 bit, on one of my smaller drives that has Adobe Lightroom, and Quickbooks. Those are the only 2 Windoze based programs that I use. Being Windoze is a virus magnet, I have the Ethernet function DISABLED on that OS.
