If it were me I would wait for the lot then upgrade especially if it was all coming in the same week. Then again......that's me. :happy:

I would also wait. You will more that likely have to do a clean install with all the new hardware so if you only want to do it once you should wait.........

tried it once, did a repair and it fixed it - ran it for a few days, reinstalled cuz a clean install always runs best :)

so it is possible to be done... but id wait all the same

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
