Hi, I understand now isn't a great time for a PC refresh for a few reasons, including but not limited to: DDR4 prices are high; there are no lower-end chipsets which work with CFL CPUs; flash/SSD prices are high; GPU prices are high.
If I were to refresh my PC, I wouldn't be replacing my video card. I'd probably go with a 256GB or maybe 512GB NVMe SSD (960 EVO), but I might also just buy an mSATA to SATA adapter and reuse my current SSD for a while longer. RAM prices are discouraging, as is the motherboard situation.
For my specific use, I'd probably be aiming again for i5 / R5. My processing needs have declined (relatively) over the years, and mostly I'd consider upgrading just to have something new to play with. Power efficiency is important to me in an abstract way?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
