These are notes taken on hardware issues, solutions, building a computer, etc.
A current i5 CPU may be vacated in favor of a newer-generation i5 or even an i7.
It just depends on the MOBO. Try this site:
Pick Parts. Build Your PC. Compare and Share.
It lets you assemble details on hardware builds and checks for compatibility. You can
specify your MOBO and a processor then see if it yells at you. This site even sports
videos on building a computer with recommendations, practices, etc.
