Are you finally happy with your computer?

post #1 of 154
Thread Starter 
Just curious how many have finally hit a stage where they are simply happy with their rig. No planned upgrades, no desires for more more more!

I joined OCN just after I had bought a 5000+, I there after bought an 8750, then a 720be, now finally a 1055t.

I'll be honest, I never really felt the inadequacies of any of those processors until I would get wrapped up in other peoples discussions about their results, their fps, their etc. They never actually failed to give me smooth performance or game play.

I've now had this 1055t for almost a year, pretty much when I would normally switch out previously, except now I actually feel no desire to upgrade, I'm very happy with what my computer does.

So I'm curious, could there possibly be others within OCN who actually don't WANT to upgrade their computer? Seems far fetched yes, but I bet there are some lurking around! ninja.gif

Yup, I'm pretty happy with mine

Only thing I sorta want to do is get a 2600k or 2700k and a WC loop.

And later maybe an 800d

If only I could afford it frown.gif

But that's when the fun starts. When it can't be upgraded any more or overclocked any higher, then it's time to build a brand new rig to play with. :3

I guess I'm one. Just got my second rig up and running (folding 24/7). I'm actually gonna sell off my 4890s and throw Ubuntu on my sig rig and make it a dedicated folder as well. I'm doing just fine living off my laptop so I don't see any foreseeable upgrades happening. So yes, I guess you could say I have reached a state of being content with my rigs.

Great thing about technology... you can never be satisfied, because by the time you get it to that point, your itching for the new technology that was released days after your rig completed... Add water cooling to the mix and your mind exploded with ideas that make your porject never complete lol

Actually, yes. I'm very happy with my current setup. My previous rig was three years old before I was done updating and upgrading it, and even then I was never really content. I eventually just replaced it. But now there's nothing in my current rig that I would even consider upgrading.
