Finding the Limit on builds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello...

[Sorry if its on a wrong section]

So, I'm just wating for my last parts to arrive and I'll "Finish" my build. But I'm already planning to get WaterCooling and Sleeving and even saving for Ivy Bridge and SSD. I can't find the limit when it comes to PC building. I think my rig is quite good (not trying to show off -.-) but yet I want MOAR!! I'm totaly broke right now and I want MOAR!! Hahaha

I just want to ask you guys... Do you have a limit? Do you build a PC and keep it that wat for atleast one year? Is that even possible? I look at the amout of cash I have spent on my last two build and I say to my self. WDH am I doing? Is this neccessary? But then I turn my eyes to my rig and I say to myself.. If I just had...[Insert Hardware here]...

Anywas... I just want to know what's your story.
Good luck with your Builds and Specialy JOBS!!

I buy a top notch system and replace it every 3 years. Only exception being the video card which usually gets swapped out or doubled up on after 1.5 years, if need be.

I used to build a medium system and wait til it broke (usually 3-5 years). Recently I've had the justification that I need a faster computer for my work, so I have been constantly tweaking components and it's more like a fluid evolution type thing now. It's somewhat addictive. I was excited about water cooling, then I did that, now I'm excited about phase. I'm not sure when it'll stop.
