Re: Want to upgrade computer
Minimal for whom? For you or for someone doing word processing, e-mail, OCR streaming and recording? When you word things as you do in the below message, there is no definite way to know if you are talking about you and other power users or more generally.
Clearly what you consider minimal is completely unnecessary for a good many users.

An i5 quad with 8gb should be minimal.
I'd go for 16gb at least and an ssd boot and hdd for storage.
Or just a drive it doesn't matter.
As a gamer and tester and audio dabler its nice to have the power but I
do have a rysen 5 so I am in a different class anyway.
