Exactly. I understand CPU's a lot more after reading PP Mguire's thread. Blew my mind, and actually explained things to me that I could understand. Things that I've briefly read and skimed over in other areas of the Internet. But it was actually explained to me so I could understand it.
I'd have to refer back to it, in order to get it right. But the whole "more cores arnt always better, GPU over cpu," stuff really put a lot into perspective for me.
I should have built my computer myself all those years ago, and researched better.
I have stupid attachment to it, that's why I want to keep some parts from it. I don't want to just scrap it, but it seems im going that route eventually. For now I just want a playable PC.
I'm going to purchase the motherboard and CPU PP Mguire linked to earlier. I'm going to do more research on them also to understand it better this time.
Also reading into DDR3 and DDR4, trying to understand ram better.
I have a power supply, hard drive, DVD RW and case that I know are ok.
Motherboard, cpu, and gpu are next on my list. I'll have them within a few days. Just want to research a bit more.
Also I read in the CPU Stickied thread don't make threads like this unless you can build the rig within a week. I am so sorry I am going over that time. And if a mod wants to remove this thread I understand. It will be another week or so before I have everything up and running I assume.
Again I want to thank you guys for your time and help.
Also are my motherboard and CPU as is worth anything? If so I can get a few $$ out of it. If not, I will throw them out. I also have the 2 other destroyed GPU's.
If the answer is garbage than I would have no problem sending them off to someone here if they could make any use out of them.
