Where did he ask for suggestions to improve shit PC?

I thought it was implied.

Andrew already happily pointed out his own autism. He isn't going to understand what a social implication is or even that he may have accidentally initiated one.

Fair enough. I concede for now.

Yep, you don't need 256GB for an SSD. Get a 64Gb one for your OS

Stop telling people this. I listened to you and got a smaller (128 GB) SSD for this computer two years ago, and I've been having to shuffle things off the SSD to make space ever since.

And Parsial, no, I won't be running any Linux distros on this.

I didn't say anything about Linux, I said you'd have a hard time if you wanted to run anything but Windows.
when you try to mock anyone while also running the flat earth society. Lol

Well, two years ago, what Thork said is actually fair advice, but the problem is that this isn't two years ago. While SSDs have yet to match HDDs price-to-capacity, they are getting pretty damn close. This is why I suggested a bigger HDD, but admitted it is just a matter of personal opinion. In addition, you have above average data capacity needs. It is possible Andrew really doesn't need much space.

Also, why do you have an i7 clocked at 2.0ghz? lolololol
Cos my company gave me a laptop. Its as good as my 2 year old PC so I ditched the PC. I don't play games, don't do graphic design or autocad or anything like ... so it just makes sense.

"I don't do anything that actually requires a processor, but I wholesomely enjoying trying to tell people which processors are best for activities that I don't do."

Wow, Thork, thanks for sharing.

I know he said he'd be using it as a gaming box. But with only 256GB, he won't be playing a whole lot of games on it.

The SSD is staying too, obviously. I play a new game maybe once every few months, and uninstall ones I don't play anyway.

So I decided to switch the case to a Bitfenix Prodigy, simply because I don't like the idea of having a proprietary PSU in my system. And I'm getting an EVGA 500W PSU instead, which is not gold rated. The Pentium G3258 CPU was on sale at Fry's for $40, so I was thinking I'd just get that instead of the i3 and upgrade later. However upon opening the package I saw that the thermal paste had been spread out all over the heat sink. Obviously it was a used unit after seeing that, so I took it back in a rage and got my money back. Just a little piece of advice: if you ever buy something from Fry's electronics, make sure it's factory sealed because they have a notorious track record for open box items.
