My current 'main' PC is about 10 years old now, and is getting slow
(Medion Desktop, 10 yr old P4/3 GHz/2.5 GB with Win XP).
I would like to have your inputs on what the next one should be.
For all kinds of reasons, I want to keep Windows as the O/S.
Plus I assume I will slowly upgrade from 2 to 3 monitors.
Taking into account the future will bring
- more SDR
- more Spectran/Spectrum/WSJT like SW
- more need to run multiple programs simultanious
Should I go for an i3, i5 or i7 processor?
What is the best way to still have (via USB?) serial connectors?
Any other topics to consider?
