Hello,

I am upgrading my current configuration. It is is still working fine for my use as a desktop and gaming station. (indie games and Minecraft)
However it is now over 7 years old and I it won't receive the Windows 11 update. (incompatible CPU and motherboard without TPM 2.0)

In short I would like to keep most of my current parts but the motherboard and CPU, if possible within a budget limit of 500 euros. I may consider upgrading the GPU later.

Here is my current build :

  • Case Fractal Design Core 1000 Black M-ATX
  • Motherboard MSI H81M-P33 (MS-7817)
  • CPU Intel Core i5-4590
  • Graphics Card MSI GeForce GTX 950
  • RAM 2x 8GB DDR3 SDRAM
  • Wireless card Gigabyte Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Card GC-WB867D-I
  • Power Supply EVGA 500W P/N: 100-W1-0500-KR
  • 2 SATA devices (BluRay drive and SSD)


Thanks for reading and for the help!

PS: I do not plan to overclock.

If your only concern is not being able to upgrade to Windows 11, I'd say to keep your current build and save the money. Windows 11 is not worth the upgrade
