  1. Network and USB transfer speeds have nothing much to do with your processor. You do not need an i7 .


    To transfer files to an external drive quicker will mean getting a motherboard with USB 3 connectors AND replacing the hard drive enclosures with USB3 capable enclosures .

    Your monitor resolution is set by the monitor and the model you have will be
    1920 x 1080
  2. Thanks for the reply and the information.

    Do you have part suggestions for me?
  3. What games do you play?
