I want a better computer. A faster computer, a Bigger computer.
What is the next Step up ?

...No, what is 3 Big steps up ?

I want to get computer power.

I want a real powerfull computer.

What should I ask for when I buy a new computer ?

I would appreciate your input.
For what purpose?

You may be disappointed with any processor upgrade. There are better ones than a core I5, but for most purposes it may not be obvious.

Using an SSD for the boot drive may make things feel zippier.

If you want to play high-end games, get a better graphics card. That'd be the most significant upgrade.

If your main goal is bragging rights, get a system with a Socket 2011 I7-3960X CPU, Asus Rampage IV Extreme motherboard, 8X8 GB DDR3-2400 RAM, dual 512GB SSDs in RAID 0, three or four Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards for Crossfire, etc. Water cooling, but of course. You can climb to the top of the hardware heap - for about three months.

I do sit and think. (see profile)
I haven't yet figured out how to fill in all the specs, but I will. ( I will make a concentrated effort to fill in the correct details)
I don't play computer games. Merely, I don't want to wait, even a millisecond for a page to open..a program to load. An Antivirus program to run at 90 mb sec., when it could run at 3gig per sec.
You say.." is it necessary ? " Of course not.
"Incorporate tomorrows needs ..." There is no one time to buy technology, as, by the time it is delivered, it is already out of date.

But really yours is fine.
What? Why would you tell him to buy an i7? It's just an i5 with hyperthreading which in most cases will actually reduce performance.


@OP - More RAM, SSD, overclock your CPU and add a 2nd video card.

If you don't play games then just overclock your CPU and add an extra 2 GB of RAM and overclock that.
Alternatively, switch to a Linux OS and put 16GB of RAM in.

What are you going to do the day after you get this "real powerful computer" and discover there is something "better" or more "powerful" out there and that you spent all that money only to fall short.

Sounds to me like you won't be satisfied, regardless of what you buy.

Unless, of course, you are just having some fun with us.

I want a better computer

Look, of course I like to engage with people that know a LOT about computers.
But, I know that I know very little.
Simply, I want good and expert advice with regard to having a better and faster computer.
I am not satisfied with having the computer as it stands now. To me, it is way too slow, albeit, it is all I can afford right now.
No mistake, there are no hiccups in my system. I run a real clean clean computer, I don't even store files. I don't allow files nor baggage to dwell in my PC. I have spent years studying antivirus and malware. I even know how to fix other peoples computers.
But what I don't know, are some of the most simple tasks of a computer.
So , when I ask, it's only because I don't know. And when you tell me, then I know.
