Is it worth upgrading, and what component is worth upgrading?

Recommended Posts

Hello,
I think it's time to upgrade a component on my gaming computer, which also serves as a "main" computer.
For about a year now I have been noticing the slowness of the computer during daily use: after right-clicking on the desktop (long time for the menu to appear), opening Explorer, time rise of various software ... I got used to having a waiting period after almost every click. After turning on Rising very fast, but from the moment you rise It takes minutes for the computer to work.

I've done a lot of CCleaner software maintenance, canceled the Startup software, switched from a browser For Firefox - only minor change.
When running games everything is totally fine.
I've noticed that Task Manager many times shows me that using Disk is 100%, regardless of what software is running.
I mean I understand that there is some bottleneck that depends on hardware - I'd love to know (1) Does upgrading indeed seem to solve the problem? (2) What components should you upgrade?

Didn't get a recommendation in your previous discussion about switching to SSD storage? This recommendation is still valid.

Could be because of some shell extension.

CCleaner software maintenance

What exactly is maintenance? It's nothing more than snake oil.

1. Chaining a year and a half ago speaks about As a means to improve loading times between game areas - I have no such problem ...
Is beyond Will improve the slowness I described when operating And other desktop apps?
2. Which companies / models are better than SSD? Favors quality over immediate price, while preferring to avoid paying inflated price on brand without justification :)
3. Is the processor and the amount of Still enough for gaming, in the presence of my relatively new video card?

SSD will improve your computer loading times, but ... the processor's performance is not!

You should also take into account that you cannot connect M2.0 is fast, because your board is outdated only on the interface  SATA.

Instead, I wouldn't invest on a computer with a processor at 11 years old ... and not even an I7.

If you are on a limited budget, you can purchase a Reisen 3600 processor, 6 cores + board and memories עם M2.0 around NIS 2000.

Or look for parts by hand 2.

You forgot to mention what your willingness is to improve your existing computer and what the budget is for it.

This would be an excellent upgrade, for example:

We replaced the Trinity, we attached Refresh and have a well-oiled gaming system.

If you're not there in terms of budget, and the only thing that interests you is just the slowness of the right click,

Do good for everyone and purchase already Standard and outdated compatible with your system

Um ... no.

There are better boards for less money, for example every B450 board או Gigabyte ELITE.

SDD is expensive and excessive. You can buy excellent SDDs like Addlink S70 or XPG SX8200 for less money or double volume plus no large.

Sorry, I missed the button in the list for the board that I intended to recommend:

 

Motherboards:
Asus TUF B450M-PLUS GAMING
    Quantity: 1 - Price: ₪ 445
 

Regarding- I'm sorry to disappoint, but my cases are different.

Up to 50% difference in performance in favor of Samsung vs. XPG by a relatively negligible price difference

Which definitely pays for 500GB (which I think is definitely enough for gaming)

But if you go in the direction of 1T then the picture changes.

You're also limited to PCI 3.0, just on board You will receive PCI4.0 support. So ... it's irrelevant to humidity B450.

It doesn't matter how much it costs, it's still a bad board. VRAM on the face.

Not that it matters much to a processor like 3600 but there are much better options.

 

Regarding this SDD performance on paper does not give the average user anything.

If you do not copy files all day or edit it does not give you anything.

One can quietly take even cheaper SSDs like 660P or something similar and it will still be enough for any average user.

Ori.

His processor is 8 years old not 11, not that it matters.

Your 4-core processor already has games that utilize 6 cores and even 8, in the main 6 cores it's mainstream, 4 cores minimum.

Your FHD 60 Hz screen with a strong card, as long as you do not feel any problems with the game, blasts, setters, lugs etc. The CPU improvement in terms of fps will not be significant to you, in short the improvement will mainly exceed the lower limit of performance which is also important. As for the disk as Schlumpy said, you won't feel a difference because most software including games don't take advantage of the parallel drive work So in practice there is no difference, there are a lot of videos about it, true that on a new computer I would buy because the low price difference, personal conservatism, I would not buy a drive with Although there will be no noticeable difference with him, his life on paper is smaller but still great.

Thank you all! The detail of the answers I received is completely self-evident.
If I understood correctly - As long as I intend to move to only Without upgrading other major components (in particular , But also a processor) - I have to find either:
1. 2.5Inch - One with a SATA connection
2. Add In Card (AIC) - Assuming I have (and have) a free PCI-E slot on the motherboard.

If I am thinking of switching a card to the type of card offered here, I can put in drives More successful but on the other hand I might get involved Which is not suitable for the processor and hence the shortcut to replace the entire computer ;).

Thanks again to all the helpers! I seem to have homework on the types of I signed up.

There is no reason to just replace a board

These are only if the tracks together also replace the train

That is all the Holy Trinity - as I have already suggested.

 

1. Very true. Recommend you the curcial BX500 it always has a funny price and it's a good company.

(If you buy in the country then it seems to me that it pays to take a model MX500, which is 100 NIS more)

2. I didn't understand what you were talking about.

1. Share a link I think I also need one for some old computer :)

2. Ahh I've heard something about it but I'm not sure, 

I think I saw that he takes the EVO970plus in a bin at m.2 so I think you need a pci slot that supports

So I doubt this is right for you but requires a thorough examination because I don't know the story to the end and maybe I'm completely wrong.

Would love to learn if anyone has checked!
