1) Do you prefer to build your own PC’s or buy a branded system?
Definitely prefer to build my own. It's a great deal more fun, interesting, and helpful to understand how things work.

2) How often do you replace or upgrade your PC?
Usually ever 3-4 years for a full replacement and incremental upgrades along the way. Short answer: 2-3 years

3) How important do you feel an SSD is to system performance?
Pretty important. They definitely boot and load core programs faster, but for long-term use and cost utilization, there's still some work to be done. For those that upgrade regularly though, they're amazing.

1) Do you prefer to build your own PC’s or buy a branded system?
a) Prefer to build my own. I personally get more joy out of building the thing then i get using it. If I could, i'd start a custom PC business. Wish the market wasn't so cut throat frown.gif

2) How often do you replace or upgrade your PC?
c) 18 months – 2 years. Its an expensive hobby and a mans got rent to pay :d damn rent.... Buy an ssd or pay my rent... hmmmmmmmmmmmm

3) How important do you feel an SSD is to system performance?
a) Extremely important. Load times are seconds of your life wasted. Down with load times!

4) US Citizen biggrin.gif but google says (120 plus (45 divided by 4)) minus 11 = 120.25 and I don't question google. Ever.

1) Do you prefer to build your own PC’s or buy a branded system?
a) Prefer to build my own, every time is a learning experience. You also have freedom of choice on what hardware you want, on what budget you are building around etc.

2) How often do you replace or upgrade your PC?
d) ~3+ years for a replacement, buy upgrades whenever I need them, mostly hard disks or VGA cards.

3) How important do you feel an SSD is to system performance?
B) Pretty important, makes your life a lot faster, have your frequently used programs/games on the SSD and your good to go. They're still pretty expensive, and I wouldn't skimp out on a faster processor or better VGA card, motherboard or RAM just to get an SSD if it doesn't fit my budget, its not the end of the world if you don't have one. But its on the top of the list for a future upgrade.
