    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    Nvidia being Nvidia. Smart bidness moves I suppose but shades of 2018's crash again. https://twitter.com/i/web/status/1542733213730508800

    GTX 1630 to release in 2022. Seriously.

    In the words of Jay Sherman, it stinks! Good for a laugh though. Perhaps though it will herald a new age of new sub $100 gpus.

    is I3-3750K to i7-7700K a useful upgrade ?

    Depends on the motherboard. I have an asrock z87 that can run some haswell xeon's just fine.

    is I3-3750K to i7-7700K a useful upgrade ?

    An option for you depending on mobo is going the Xeon route. Starting with the e3-1245 v5 is rough equal to a 6700. Around $60 on ebay. 1270/75/85 are like 3.6ghz with boost at 4ghz. Xeon V6 is Kabylake but they seem to go for a lot more on ebay, basically same as 7700k prices...

    Do you think it is worth spending $60 about to upgrade old laptops with SSD drives instead of Hard Drives ?

    I've been running a refurb HP haswell i5 since 2017 for daily web surfing use. It came with a 120gb ssd, I just added a 500gb one a couple of years later.
