    Do people actually upgrade just the CPU and keep using existing motherboard?

    I have done it a few times, on my lga775 I went from a E2160 that I got for like $60 if i remember correctly to a Q6600 and then finally a QX9775. My first gen ryzen 1600 went to a 3700 on the same board with a bios upgrade. Side upgrades are always nice when you can find the right deal on a CPU

    Facebook Parent Company Meta loses record $230B in one day.

    As someone who has stopped using all social media this warms my heart, Not a huge apple supporter but anything that helps limit ad tracking is ok in my books.

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    My truck has a 8.1 out of a 2500 silverado, modern fuel injection but stand alone engine harness thats simple enough that it can be fixed. If anything ever happens to this motor it will be replaced with a low milage cummins diesel i have stashed away.

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    Its getting done this winter once it doesnt get used as much, also swapping interior to one from newer truck and switching it to a dually using axles from a 2010 ford to get rid of locking hubs and a bigger GWR rear housing. I think that a remake would sell well but emissions would ruin it.

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    I guess my thing is I need a HD work truck and up here in canada you are not going to get a 3/4 ton for under 80K and when something goes wrong with them the downtime is insane because dealers cant get parts/ never seem to properly fix them. My brother has a 2019 F350 that has been inservice...

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    Ill stick to my dumb vehicles that i can repair myself with cheap parts. New trucks are just insanely priced with way to much stuff i dont need or want. A truck should be a work vehicle not a rolling entertainment center

    Intel CEO: Most People Only Replace A PC After 5-6 Years

    I used to do a major upgrade once a year or so but now since gaming isnt as big a hobby of mine i do small upgrades every couple of years. No real games on the horizon that are must plays for me so my 5600xt should get me through this current shortage but a major cpu upgrade is most likely...

    Great choice on the gear i think you will be very happy with it, i have 2 older ubi access points and i love them, set and forget. If your running the cat6 yourself double up runs to important locations. No opinion on home surveillance as i have never dipped into that.
