Maybe I'll wait till 2020 for a new CPU

I think there will be a new AMD socket then. AM4 will be supported till 2020.

Maybe wait till 2025, if I live that long. Think I got this CPU and motherboard in 2017, so it'll be 8 years by 2025.

Will quantum computers be out by then? If not, wait till 2030. Just keep waiting. See how long this computer will last. Might not be able to buy parts for it though. Should stock up on AM4 motherboards, CPUs, and power supplies. Maybe RAM too. Would be cheaper just to upgrade when the new socket arrives, if this one is dead.
