I'm finally taking the advice of the people here who told me last year it was way past time to upgrade from a Core 2 E6750. The parts list below came after a good bit of research, but I've been away from this for so long I'd like to hear what more experienced people think. Priorities are: (1). Interface !!! (getting Win7 to work on coffee lake. Not at all interested in being talked into Win 10) (2). Quality (stability/longevity of the hardware, and hopefully avoiding RMAs). (3). Enough RAM for Photoshop / Video editing / ramdisks (4). No overclocking. No gaming. I already bought the i5-8400, so I'm mostly wondering if these are good choices for mobo, ram, video PSU and case. Is the MSI adequate for running a 1920x1200 + 1280x1024? Case: Corsair Carbide 200R CPU: Intel Core i5-8400 Mobo: Gigabyte Z370 HD3 RAM: G.SKILL Aegis 32GB (2x16) 2400 Video: MSI GeForce GT 710 1GD3H LPV1 PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2 SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 250 The motherboard is the hardest question for me. I've narrowed it to a Z370 for Win 7 compatibility, but there are still so many of them, including 2 other Gigabytes, the Z370 HD3P and Z370P D3.
