What I love about how CPU's have been since the original i3/i5/i7 is you can still use a CPU from 2012 (3570k in my case for example on my other build with a 660Ti, still fast enough for just normal things and most games at medium or even high... 16gb DDR3 and a 480Gb SSD). It's still great and pretty fast 8 years later. Imagine saying that in the Pentium and even in the Core era. I remember the difference between my 64MB Celeron 300 and my P3 500 256MB was night and day... It used to take up to a minute to load some MAME roms back in the day, and once I upgraded, it was instant, and no lag...
1496 ram? Is speccy only reading the single rate, or am I missing something?
It's not the specs on your desk, it's what feels right to you.i just built a pc today. its low spec, budget as shit, cable management IS shit, and has no internet whatsoever, but hey, it works.
