Socket FCLGA1155. Any of these. You'll have to refine down the 131 selections.

Dual channel DDR3 1366/1600

A simple search gives you all the answers you seek

Here's an idea: ask the people who are selling the <...Intel core i5-3470 3.2GHZ Processor...>. It's a novel idea and, who knows, it may just work.

Don't do this example: Computer comes with 32GB solid-state memory (laptop).

System (starting out) was 2/3 of 32GB, roughly. Computer came with one year free Cloud use at 1TB, but customer never utilized the Cloud. duh.

Customer never used an SD drive, but may have used a thumb drive to transfer some needed files to another system. Now customer is boiling over, because he deleted the most important Arduino sketches of his life.

Make sure you buy a system with sufficient hard memory to cover every situation you will run into.

Everything he asked is in my first post, there are 131 Gigabyte motherboards that will support his processor. Here is my link...: http://www.gigabyte.us/Motherboard/Intel-Socket-1155. Ram is pretty much ram as long as your motherboard supports it.

He needs to decide what he needs it for, and how much he wants to spend, which my crystal ball is failing me on.....

On mine the RAM and SATA drive weren't the problem so much as the cost of the coprocessor

I know, right? Can you image the 3D VR gaming you could do on that? Ray-traced scene rendering and acoustics, and realistic physics in real time? A Holodeck without the 'deck' part. So what if its electric bill is $9 million a year. You'd never see me here again!

Speaking of which. Wouldn't it be cool if instead of typing at a keyboard we could all talk face to VR face. Anonymous posters wearing Guy Fawkes masks could be wrestled to the ground and the masks torn off.

I'm trying to imagine the V.R. gaming I can do with my build, I have a 1060 GTX video card that is supposed to be V.R. ready. I was going to get Nvidia's V.R. goggles but now I have to replace my sons 17.3 inch LCD on the HP laptop I just bought at Christmas. He cracked his screen, in four months a laptop is now a desktop...

They do that. They're hard on stuff.

That 1060's specs are pretty impressive.

By no means is it top of the line, but it is a great card for the money.

What is a SATA drive? I am not a computer knowledgeable up-to-date kind of a guy. You know why they call it knowledge? It is narrow, slippery, and once there, one easily slips off and down the cliff you go. I have been just clawing the cliff face for a long time, but I feel the plunge coming.

But what keeps the daemons from running amok, and causing all manner of chaos on the internet? Is that what happens when someone lets the smoke out of a server farm?

SATA is the connection interface for the hard drive, pretty much every drive in the last 10 years has been SATA. It replaced the former interface which was IDE (parallel). You may remember seeing the 40 and 80 pin ribbon cables. SATA just has a small serial cable.

So that's why my 'puter quit working when I clipped the yellow wire.

Don't clip the yellow wire, you were supposed to clip the blue wire. By clipping the yellow wire, you sent a copy, to everyone, of that section of your hard drive you try to keep hidden, the one you stay up late and watch...

My copy is downloading now, thanks.......

No worries, I have black tape over the cam. HA HA HA

The chandeliers are however, a bit the worse for wear, and one beam is sagging.

Here is my wifey's selfy:

You know what? I don't care about what the rest of CR4 says about you, you are OK in my book. You have made me chuckle quite a few times.

Here is my wifey's selfie :

That's right, I don't have a wifey anymore. To quote my favorite Scottish history movie, "FREEDOM!!!!!!".

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-3470

see section "Last 5 Baselines for Intel Core i5-3470 ..." below (((for only random 5 possible system configurations -- why i'm not that smart as these guys)))

what you actually want to find out is -- how well your future system integrates together in practice and in a longer run

integrates together -- is what the cpubenchmark for a particular pc somewhat hints

in a longer run -- is apx. ... though SSD drives are faster -- then their service life is likely orders less than for SATA . . . as also for each additional adapter it's good to know how well they get along with the rest of your system*

(((nowadays less likely* -- say you can't have both a device X and Y integrated to your system because of some specific mode they attempt to allocate sys. resources -- which may be significantly limiting their I/O -- even up to a device and system hang -- this may concern not-integrated(not tested in particular system) graphics and misc. I/O adapters)))
