My current computer was bought in February of 2008, didn't realize it was over 5 years old. It still moves along pretty well for the most part but with the addition of SP2014 it is apparent that an upgrade is going to be necessary for my patience's sake. I really haven't kept up with processors, etc. My current is a 2.66 ghz, Intel core2 quad, 4 total and 4 gigs of RAM. I changed the graphics card out to a enforce gt 640 when I upgraded SP so I could use directx 11. I am still using Windows XP as well. I have had my last 3 or 4 computers built by a local company but am thinking about doing it myself this time with some guidance from a friend who has done it.
I'm looking for suggestions on what to build. I prefer not buying one of the comp manufacturers machines because I don't want all the junk that comes with them. Any suggestions are appreciated.
