HowTo Buy a 5 year PC - Once You Know, You Newegg

5 years ago, we built the last PC, buying cpu, board, memory from Fry's Electronics.

I use it for software development, my kids use it for gaming, er homework...And this year it is obsolete...Hard Disks are SATA. CPU's have 6 cores now. USB is now version 3.0. Had to buy a new hard disk, and the power comes on intermittently.

Actually games are slow, and for a project I had a dual socket 4 core I7 server with 6GB SATA and it was really fast...

First rule: Everything changes.
- Developers no longer have fast computers, Gamers do...
- Old people have computers, PC's, desktops, etc. Gamers build Rigs...
- Gamers are building rigs 24/7.

For this build, we will do it on There are other online retailers, but they are the easiest to find parts to build systems, er rigs...

The following public wishlist is the result of this build. The details of how each was picked will follow.
