oLD AMD PC no worries!!

Its often possible to give an older AMD PC one last run on the battlefield. To rage in a blaze of high FPS glory, before spectacularly dying a glorious way. 

//AMD PCs as old as 2016 can still be upgraded

Old AMD motherboards form 2018 are still compatible with next gen AMD CPUs released in 2023. So don’t write off your 5 year old PC just yet. 

// Intel raiding the spare parts box
