Best upgrade? IMO Display...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
If you can afford it, have the hardware to run reasonably high settings; IMO a large high quailty display is the most significant upgrade to enhance your gaming/pc experience.

I have spent a decent amount of money attempting to enhance my pc experience. Everything from ~$400 keyboard (modded realforce), ~$1000 chair (herman miller aeron), SSD's, SLI, CPU upgrade, top of the line motherboard, 16gb memory, etc...

If I could only keep 1 piece of my "high end" hardware and had to go middle of the road everything else (price no object): I would keep my displays period. It doesnt even take much thought. For me it would be a no brainer to keep my 30" + 20" portrait.

Just wanted to share, as I dont think I will be doing any more upgrading until kepler.

If your thinking about upgrading to a 30" display... STOP THINKING JUST DO IT!

I'd rather have 23-25 inch monitors in eyefinity but I agree, PC components get outdated every year and are replaced by better parts. However, a monitor would last you for a while, had my 20.5 inch Samsung for a good 5 years now.
