Whats the point of upgrading for me?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I had a list planned out for next month to update my rig, a new motherboard, bigger PSU, and another 6950, since over 6 months ago. And now thats its approaching I'm getting cold feet. I mean right now I'm satisfied with the performance, all I do is play crisis2. Adding the second card will just add issues!

Am I slowly going crazy? Im really excited to get new stuff for my PC, but in the end I'm worried that it will be money wasted. What would you guys do? Go with the planned upgrades? I know for a fact I'm getting a new motherboard, can't stand the way mATX looks in a big case, and grabbing a 650D. Seems like a good time to add in extras?

A. Yes you will waste your money
B. A second 6950 would be epic
C. Yes you are crazy, don't worry though we are as well.

I would have a look at the 800D, it's a huge case and is epic for watercooling

This... Is... OCN! Do it!

Seriously though, I keep looking at my sig rig and thinking I should set up a water cooling loop, even though I don't overclock. Then I go hang out in the Online Deals forum and see a massive video card for a steal and think I could afford two of those and set up a SLI, even though I'm not PC gamer. It never ends.

The need to upgrade is a sickness. You don't need any justification.
