        They have been on I9s for a while now I believe...

          Now that you mention it, I do remember commenting somewhere, hopeful this would finally bring down the cost on i7s

            They've been on i9s for awhile, but they're generally overkill unless you're doing a ton of photo editing/ rendering/etc. i7s will work great for most home users/ gaming rigs so you can throw the extra money at the video card.

              I've been looking at doing an HTPC for years now. Waiting for the right time. I'd want it to be a little better than just an i3 to play movies and whatnot. It would be nice to be able to toss some mid-level games on there and run.

              i5 is where I figured I'd land until the i9s came out. I'm definitely starting to recall this. And the spreadsheet I had with the specs I was looking at seems to show that as well.

                A high-end i5 will still give you plenty of kick,, especially if you can overclock it. Even though I'm still an Intel guy, the latest AMD Ryzen processors will give you the best bang for the buck if you can find one, though to fully maximize it you'd want an AMD video card, too. Which, while decent, still generally run behind their comparable NVIDIA counterparts.

                (Though again, at this point you kinda take what you can get...I managed to snag a 3080 but had to spend $10 on a service that pushed alerts everytime they restocked on newegg, and basically grabbed what I could rather than the one I really wanted).

                • There’s not really any issues running an AMD processor and an Nvidia GPU, at least in my experience (I’m running a Ryzen 5 3600 and RTX 3060). Adequate cooling is the most important thing, especially with a lot of cases these days having inadequate air flow.

                    Yeah, you absolutely can do that fine, but AMDs latest architecture has a couple of extra benefits if you pair an AMD processor with an AMD gpu that isn't available with an Nvidia gpu. Can't remember exactly what it is off hand, but there's something there.

                      Hell, most of my build specs had intel mobos too

                      edit: obviously things have changed DRASTICALLY in the last several years. Especially with the ryzens

                          I really like my Dell 8940...but watch out when an update is needed. There is something that happens when there is a windows update that mine will create a bunch of memory hog processes and I have not been able to fix it or find a satisfying solution online. I usually run at about 20% memory and when this happens, it brings the whole computer to a crawl. It does resolve when the update is applied (or a weekly restart).

                              Good to know Dell hasn't changed these last few years. The HP laptop I got seemed to be (mostly) bloatware free... except for the HP specific drivers for audio and video that I can't update until HP provides the new drivers. It has a built in Intel graphics card that is continually out of date but warns that not using the HP branded Intel driver could cause it to break.


                              And I already have enough headaches from Windows Update and the built in camera/Infrared cameras not working when Windows updates that I don't dare try my luck with the video drivers.

                                In the past, I have been able to de-bloat fairly effectively on several different brands but this Dell desktop has been a bit more challenging (and frustrating as I have 32G of memory so no ****ing reason to run out ever with what I do on it).
