Starting to consider an upgrade from my Intel Gen 6 system. I don't require much, mostly browse the net, some large spreadsheet work, play a few fps single-player games, nothing very demanding.
The reasons for the possible upgrade are:

I need help with a problem with a linux laptop machine. The laptop was installed with a Linux Ubuntu 15.10 and I took the time to upgrade the distro.
So I upgraded from 15.10 -> 16.04 LST -> 18.04 LTS and it all seemed so far, so good.
Then I put the machine to upgrade to 19.04 and went...

Unless I buy another kit like that, considering several options depending on what is on sale I don't know how to decide, based on which parameter.
As a side question I would be interested to know also...
I'm tossing around the idea of upgrading the quad core Ryzen 5 1500X processor in my B350 gaming computer, since the 2nd gen 6-core plus processors are so cheap; the performance in some games does lack a bit as configured. This computer also uses the other Vega 64 card so upping the processing...

So before I start, I just want to make it clear that I don't have a lot of advanced knowledge when it comes to PC hardware. I just generally haven't been doing a lot of researching regarding it and I'm very new to this forum. That being said, this is my current build:
Intel G3258 CPU
Im currently using a Samsung 840 series SSD as my boot/windows drive (Win10 x64). I would like to upgrade it to a more recent SATA ssd, but i cant face reinstalling everything - my DAW setup has a lot of plugins and takes about 8 hours of installs to get everything working correctly, and i...

So I had an older computer running windows 7. I recently decided to buy a bunch of new parts (motherboard, cpu, gpu, power supply) so I could game better. However, understandably, after I upgraded, my OS didn't come with my computer. I had to load a version of Windows 7 on USB just to run my...

Looking to upgrade my current 2012 PC hardware. My OC on the computer burnt out pins on the CPU (still works though!), but I cannot OC anymore. Basically, my 3570K is a 3570; multiplier tops out to 38 in BIOS, but never goes above 3.6 GHz anyways.
Looking for general recommendations for the...

First time posting.
I have a fairly old computer (setup is described below). I have a socket LGA1155 motherboard, so can't really move up on the CPU side, but I figured that I might be able to upgrade my graphics card from the GTX 650 Ti to a newer generation one for cheap (or free)...

So I have been pretty happy with a fresh install of Windows 10. Now the upgrade, that's a whole other story. With my desktop, it came when I tried to install Sling. It wouldn't install no matter what compatibility mode I chose, yet on a VM running Windows 10, no problems at all.

After months of getting our admin staff to abandon their office server, a tired Dell PE 2900, I was finally able to pull the plug on the old dinosaur machine that it was. The server is still in decent condition so I got the idea of reconditioning the tower as a workstation with a couple Xeons...
