There's people on RFD that think a 4770K, 32GB RAM, and an 850W PSU are minimum/required...to surf the internet. lol What's worse though is they actually recommend this stuff to people :facepalm: "You need it for Chrome!" as they say...meanwhile a $150 Chromebook will use Chrome fine. LMAO.

I hope this is not true. I never saw such recommendation but if it's true OH MY!

I guess more deal on kijiji for me people selling "old" i5 6600 for half the price. I got a bundle of i5 6600 with 16gb of ram and a gaming MB for 400$. Ok I will say it's rare but still.

Hey now, I had a 2500K with 2x AMD HD290s in Crossfire configuration powered by my Seasonic 1050 watt PSU (calculators put it at 860watt recommended)

Now with my 7700k and GTX1080 PSU recommendation is only 480watt, so now the PSU is OP ;)

To be fair, websites these days are pretty intensive and a Chromebook will routinely choke processing many websites.
it's me ramin.
