While my PC was performing a scandisk to fix damaged files for the 3rd time in a week, I went to price parts ro build a new computer. Unfortunately the common response was that it was difficult to find a motherboard that would support an i5 and that an i7 was out of the question unless I installed Windows 10.
Later I opened my cabinet and lo and behold is an i7-4790 with 32 Mb ram and 64-bit running Windows 7 Ultimate. The motherboard is ASRock Fatality Performance series, just what I was thinking of upgrading ro. yet I already have it and today they cannot provide anything using an i7 with Windows 7.
So I am now planning on simply replacing the raid drives. But what gives about all the hoohah regarding i7 and Windows 7?
