I just saw that I only have a hundred gigabytes of free space left on my hard drive.

Pc which dates back more or less four years.

Asked to copy my current drive to a 1TB ssd.

But I keep my current record anyway, you never know if I can use it.

My fear, but apparently I should be fine I want when cloning to be able to use the new ssd to make my stuff work as if it was still with my old hard drive.

As a certified copy, I should not have any licensing, location or other issues since ssd is included in C.

At the same time, I asked for the price for an up grade to switch to i9 11900 k and 32 gigas more, total 64 gigas.

You have to count for everything more or less 1200 euros.

I still wonder if it's worth it?

Because the Mac mini pro max should perhaps arrive within a few months most certainly.

Better not to change anything and wait for the new Mac mini or even change my current hard drive to 1TB ssd and upgrade to i9 11900k?

You want to upgrade your current system, but what model is the motherboard, RAM, CPU cooler and PSU?
Not everything is compatible, we need to know the models.

i7-11700K makes more sense for the buck.

Thanks for your feedback.

I inquired at the stores where I bought my pc at the time and according to the components of my pc, I can just change my processor and motherboard, the rest is compatible.

Z 590 motherboard and 11900 k i9 processor.

Ah good series 7 instead of 9, surprising and appealing that more suitable and better than the i9.

Intel 12900k has just been released. Best in class performance, giving AMD and Apple a run for their money
