Upgrading my desktop computer
on Dec 8, 2018 at 9:15:46 pm

Having had so many problems with my desktop computer in the past year, I have decided to upgrade. I've decided to replace the motherboard, CPU, RAM and buy an SSD for the OS and programmes.

The computer is used for regular home activities as well as amateur photo and video editing. I use Photoshop and Premiere Pro. I don’t play games. I use Windows 10.

Currently, I have the following:
• Motherboard: MSI H61M-P21(B3)
• Processor: Intel Core i5-2400 Quad-Core Processor 3.1 GHz
• 2x 8GB RAM
• Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
• AVerMedia A323 MiniCard Hybrid ATSC (Used very occasionally)
• 3x internal 1TB HDDs
• DVD Drive
• ATX-P4 600W power supply

The following was suggested:
CPU: Intel 8th Gen Core i5 8400
MB: Gigabyte B360 DDR4

Could someone please help me especially with choosing a CPU. It seems as if after Black Friday, there are no more i5 8400 CPU's available at a reasonable price.
