No problem. Intel improvement is very minuscule through the generations since Sandy(2nd)/Ivy(3rd) Bridge. So rest assured, i5 from 3rd gen onward is okay for your usage. Just gpu maybe get slightly better like a gtx 960 or 970 since your kids will game on it.

Top with a ssd, I don't see this specs will lose out to current gen Intel by a notable gap.

My last PC had a 3570 (non K) processor. For normal use, it was super fast. You can definitely have a great experience on them even now

Intel has been quite infamous for not really innovating their CPU tech lately. Even the old i7 3770k is still a beast in the Intel line up.

Depending on the specs, older PC not all support Windows 10
so best to check first.
If it's second, even a PC with Windows 7 will do just fine.

This is what i am afraid of, for eg, ipad mini first gen will run fine in iOS 5 but if you upgrade to iOS 8 then super laggy liao.

Not all support windows10 means what? dependency is on chip or mobo or?

@poooooo : you using windows 10?

Intel 3 and 4 series will support. Even the 2 series. Even the older series.
