The current family computer has a Pentium E5700, a malfunctioning motherboard and a bad 80 GB HDD. No, I did not miss a zero. So, first question, for doing basic stuff, what is more important, threads or clockspeed? I am torn between the Pentium Gold series and the Ryzen 3. Secondly, how bad is the life expectancy or service period of a SATA SSD compared to an HDD, with lower prices I was thinking about a 500 GB SSD instead of the obvious 1 TB HDD choice. Thanks in advance.
