I am still on an i5 2500k! Yikes...

Intel are cheaper for the same benchmarks, but use more power in the current gens (5600x vs 11600k). Say, didn't that used to me AMD's game? What happened?
What CPU are you running now?

what do you want: Intel or AMD? Or does it matter?

I hear that. End of cycle for both sockets, but if I wait, I get slammed financially and end up in bleeding edge tech with a variety of issues. The determining factor is that I have a budget, so spending more just isn't on the table. Decision made for me! Also: There is ALWAYS something better around the corner in tech. I just count my blessings; at least I don't have to buy a GPU!
The rat race is on, Sedai will beat me cuz he's a bald dude with a switch blade.
Smartphones are overrated anyways
Out of all the shiny BS that's getting waved in my face on a regular basis, i've decided i'm going to downgrade my smartphone plan to something a lot cheaper (unfortunately i have to get a new phone ) and i'm going to build a separate computer just for running linux operating systems. I was thinking about upgrading my TVs sound but I already got something mildly archaic that works fine and all the adapter options are confusing me.

Close! Although I have upgraded pretty much all the other components around those core pieces. Newer GPU, changed my HDD over to SSD etc. Alas, I am seeing pretty bad CPU bottlenecks at this point. It's time! Will be watching black Friday deals like a hawk...

Someone stole my parking spot this morning. Joke is on them, tho. Once they get hit with berry bird shit they won't park there again. xD
