Thinking about upgrading.. Any thoughts?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

I'm thinking about upgrading my PC, but not sure if I should wait or what I would even need/want. Currently, I game at 4k on a upstar lcd monitor.. not the best but it works. I also have a VIVE. Below are my specs, in an ideal world.. what would you consider upgrading? NOTE: I transport my PC every 2 weeks about 40 mins to a LAN party. (was thinking about getting a gaming laptop for my lan parties but probably a waste)

SPECS:
4790k at 4.4ghz
980ti at 1400mhz
16GB DDR3 1600mhz ram
512 mx100 SSD
1TB HDD
1TB HDD
Corsair k70 mech keyboard
SteelSeries Sensei.

Thanks all!!!!

No laptop you get would be even close in power and performance, aside from that the only upgrade i can offer is a gtx 1080 but they are way overpriced and hard to find right now for a very minimal performance boost, id just stick with that for now easily. move the system to a smaller case for easier carrying maybe? or mod your own custom lan rig haha. but part wise you are still very high end with no upgrades honestly viable. hope this helps

Currently only has a 980 ( 200W ) or 2x980M ( 2x100W ) / some users have gotten it to 1400/1425 on the former
a new revision might have a 1080 ( 180W ) in a few months

that would be the only laptop capable of being close to a desktop

Like others have said I would wait, especially with the new thread in the News section about how the 1080 hasn't been playing nice with the VIVE, (at least through Displayport's if that's how you're hooked up) here's a link. Vive
