There are (today) three Intel builds at PCMR. Reply by rproffitt

If you are restoring to factory then I suggest that once restored you download two programs (both free)

[EaseUS Partition Master](https://www.easeus.com/partition-manager/epm-free.html)

[Macrium Reflect Free Home Edition](https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree)

Install EaseUS and run it to shrink the system drive to something like 120 gig. Then creade a partition on the unused space and … Reply by Reverend Jim

Ahh, gaming taps more than the CPU. My current fav build is kind of a monster. It's the usual i7, 16GB RAM, 1050 or better GPU and no hard disks. SSD has come way down in price so I usually pop in the 512GB SSD. These machines fly.

I'm think of going with this processor, it was on that page you posted earlier. I'll then just need to find a good Asus or Gigabyte motherboard with the specs I need to go with it.

As to socket and chipset. I rarely find any gain in choosign chipsets but as you can guess, the socket, chipset and BIOS must list the CPU you choose.


That is, the motherboard maker will have a page about compatible CPUs for the board we are looking at. Reply by rproffitt

You had me till that many SATA ports. I think you should use some PCIe board for more ports if need be.

About shopping boards, the socket changes with your CPU selection (most of the time)

USB 3 ports so far support all my USB 1.x and 2.x devices.
