So my desktop has started freezing and BSoDing like crazy. Suspect the memory's gone bad, but I don't have sticks to swap in just yet. Might be a good excuse to upgrade to better RAM sticks anyway, if they ever come down in price that is.

I think my next bonus is gonna go to upping my desktop to something more modern and get off the crazy train of intel and its neverending stream of really fucking stupid security flaws

I am, but I fixed the problem, so no big deal. RAM clocking was off.
That's good, I am still not confident in any tool to accurately determine if RAM has gone bad. "Run stress tests until it crashes" is the norm and that's got too many other failure junctions to really work.

You had your clocking set manually, though?

Originally I did but at some point it got toggled back to XMP autosettings which were running it too slow (2133 instead of 2400). I'm guessing it happened when I flashed the BIOS, can't think of any other time it would have happened.

EDIT: That was a while ago, though, and this only started happening a month or two ago. Huh. Wonder if the CMOS battery is going or something?

OK boys I need some help. I am getting into the VR meme, but I know my MB and CPU need an upgrade.
MSI Pro series intel 8th Gen LGA 1151 Atx (Z370-A Pro)
i5-8400 up to 4Ghz
Any suggestions of a good CPU MB combo?

If you're committed to Intel, I dunno. I haven't bothered with those since the P4s were a thing. If you're willing to go Ryzen, my R5 2600 paired with a Radeon RX580 can do VR, albeit not FANTASTICALLY. My rig is probably baseline for VR shit.

I got money to burn so it’s not that big of a deal. (Granted trying time keep in under like $550) I got a RTX 2070 8gig so I got the gpu all sorted just need a new cpu mb.

i think your specs are more than fine tbh
Yeah from what I have seen you really don’t need an i7 I have seen people use an i3 and it worked fine. But when I do get VR it won’t take that long to see if I need to update some of my other gear. But what I need is more SSDs baby

You've already got a 6 core CPU. You really wont see any major increase in performance from a 8 core chip, either from intel or AMD, not enough to justify the cost IMO.

If you wanted to go now, I'd go 9700k or 3700x. For motherboards, from intel the gigabyte ultra and master z390 boards are quite nice. For AMD, same thing, the gigabyte boards are solid (if occasionally a tad buggy). The asus crosshair hero boards are nice, but not worth the high cost IMO.

Honestly, the 8400 shoud be pretty good, I'd wait for either the AMD 4000 series or for intel to finally get up off their ass and deliver a substantially faster CPU.

Got her cheap from a pawn shop years ago. Obsolete, but she does OK. Has a touchscreen which pisses me off. There's another RAM slot but I don't think she needs more RAM.

Alright, time for an update.

I finally assembled my new PC today, which consists of:
OS; Linux Mint
Motherboard Chipset: B450, micro-ATX
CPU; Ryzen 7 3700X
GPU: Radeon RX 560
RAM: DDR4-3200 16GB
Storage: Samsung 960 EVO

Since I forgot all about cloning my hard drive onto my M.2 drive, I now have to get an adapter to switch everything on my old PC over. The cold hard facts are that any version of Linux will never be as efficient or relevant as Windows 7 or 10 is.
