Someone needs to invent a cure to the upgrade bug. I keep telling myself I wont buy stuff now, what I have is good enough, but then I end up going from this:

To this:

You know what would compliment your large Seagate Hard drive?

A nice 256gb Samsung Evo SSD smile.gif

At least a 64gb ssd to use as a cache drive if you have Intel and haven't already added a SSD to your rig

I think you didn't click on the pics ... 128 Gb + 512 Gb Crucial M4s for Windows & Steam tongue.gif

Those were bought ages ago, I just got the 4 Tbs to upgrade my 2 Tbs.

Oh nice!

I'm on my phone right now.... . .see OCN even follows you even though you're away from your PC. Its awesome/a curse.

That's a lot of SSD goodness. Preferably SSDs aren't the best thing for games, but if you have the funds then go at it smile.gif

"Someone needs to invent a cure to the upgrade bug. "
by bhav
*********

There's a way, or more, to scratch the upgrade itch while waiting for the next generation, or 1/2 new generation, or maybe 1/10th smile.gif new gen. hardware:

1. Refresh or try new thermal paste. A tube of Shin Etsu or such should be in your drawer at any time.
2. Fans, fans, fans... hope no details needed.
3. smart UPS... and maybe an upgrade proof PSU
4. Backup solutions
5. Better op-amps on the audio card
6. OS on SSD... or on N SSD's in Raid0.
7. a zillion tweakings and bechmarks
8. posting on OCN

and so forth thumb.gif
