My kids are "off the payroll." They are responsible for their own systems, just as they are for their own groceries or car payments. Of course the "Bank of Mom and Dad" still provides some IT consulting.In my younger years I used to flip hardware to upgrade to the next. I lost out more than a few times, but back then I did what I had to do. These days I have my 2 boys that are old enough to use them. My oldest boy is basically running my original AM4 system that I built at the dawn of Zen 3. My plan was to do 3 AM4 setups as I have 3 CPUs.. but I have an LGA1700 board coming from a buddy down in the states. I have some G.Skill DDR5 picked out, just not sure on a CPU for it.. probably a 13sixer.
