Hardware Spring 2024

Reader’s Note  This page is in the process of being updated, here are my current thoughts on hardware components. The rest of the page will be updated soon as I can block some time.


  • If you plan to use the machine primarily for gaming and not productivity, go with the 7800X3D.
  • If you do video editing, 3D modeling, or heavy spreadsheet work, go with Intel. But go 14700k.
  • DDR5 6000 with CAS 30 in 32 GB (2 x 16 NOT 4 x 8).
  • Video cards: Do not purchase any card
