This is why I got a $3000 pc that will last me for 5 years. It is a custom built thing that is still going strong. No memory leaks, no nothing, the only thing I didn't do was to get a bigger ssd drive for my windows, I thought at the time 500 gigs was enough but I want to get a 1tb drive at some point. I plan on buying from these guys again. It's expensive, but worth it. Your base pc will be about $1500 which is plenty good for me, next time I think, as I do my gaming on a shadow pc which always gets updates.

If you build your own PC or work with a company that can custom build it for you, you can make sure that only a minimum installation of the operating system is done – no extra, vendor-supplied drivers or software that can cause reliability issues.

On my Lenovo ThinkPad T480. I used FN==+exc to lock the function keys in

F1 to 12 mode. Now my special keys have to use the FN key to work.

Dell had this same problem on desktops when xp came out. Everyone had to

buy sound cards, because Dell kept stateing its your screen reader

software and we don't support that.
