    Another desktop upgrade

    I am about to upgrade my Ship of Theseus PC again. This time I just need new CPU, RAM and mobo.
    I have already done the legwork, just want to know if my choices are good, or miss anything not obvious:

    Memory (x 2)
    Heat sink & fan
    Thermal paste

    The only annoying downside is that I have a USB 2.0 card which uses a PCI slot, which I'd like to be able to retain for legacy music equipment, but I don't seem to be able to find any motherboards which have PCI slots any more, so perhaps I just need to find another way around that.

    Any thoughts?

    nothing wrong with any of those as far as I can tell. also, pci-e 1x usb cards should be dirt cheap, if you need more usb 2.0 ports for whatever reason. you could even go for a pci->pci-e adapter if you have to use the current card.
