Anything worth buying?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

I have not been keeping up on the hardware scene recently. I'm pretty happy with the performance of my current rig but was wondering if there is really any thing out there worth buying that would give me a huge jump in performance.
I think i max out most games as is.
I mostly play AoC now and can just about max it out as it stands. I think this system could last me another 1 maybe 2 years.... Correct?

Well, you do have a great rig, the only thing that I doublt it'll last 2 years are your graphics cards, even in SLI. The graphics industry is evolving at a very fast rate.

But for now, I don't really think you need to upgrade any of your hardware, maybe in a few months, you should be able to play most games under high settings, but hardly on 1080p resolution though, that screen is huge.

I think this would be a worthwhile leap since it appears you're using onboard audio. You're missing out on some sounds and the quality will improve as well.
