I am one of the Drupal core maintainers. I was also one of the senior programmers / architects of a Top 100 website built on top of Drupal 7 and MongoDB. These days I work on Drupal 8, making it compatible with MongoDB and creating a migrate path from Drupal 6 and 7.

comment Can I add RAM sticks from an old PC to improve the performance of the new one?
I did elaborate on what I consider a "typical" desktop: "word processing, movie watching, Internet browsing, amateur photo editing tasks".

For a very long time now the only way to speed up a desktop is to a) make sure you have enough RAM and are not swapping (4GB is plenty) b) get an SSD. I'd say the word processing, movie watching, Internet browsing, amateur photo editing tasks would see extremely little or no improvement from Core 2 to Haswell if both have an SSD.

comment Lost HDD partition to clean command, testdisk unresponsive
First, calm down. Trying all sorts of tools without any understanding can only make things worse. TestDisk should absolutely be able to recover from this, the wiki contains well detailed instructions cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step what did you try, what happened and what did you expect to happen instead? Edit: same question for Find and Mount.
