As much as i can afford!!
My main is a ryzen 1700 and i just love how my task manager has the 16 thread graphs.

Also, I recently upgraded my spare computer from 3rd gen i3 to a 3rd gen i7 3770. Found it on ebay for $65 shipped. I was thinking about throwing a video card in there, but remembered my PSU is only 300 watts.

Lol, yeah, it's only got the 4-pin accessory power cable for the motherboard (as opposed to the 8-pin) but it works for the cpu at least. And i was able to stream my switch to twitch via obs without any issues.

I think my up to 4.3GHz overclock ready i5 3570k is good for two more years for me.


I did a mistake getting a used video card to SLI due to lack of support lately but if new games support it it could live for those two more years. That's another issue, tho.

Doesn't matter what you get SG, they become obsolete in a hurry.
