Futureproof rig? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
There's no such thing as "future proof".
If there was,a lot of design engineers would be out of a job.
There's only small improvements ["incremental changes"] and larger changes ["breakthroughs"].
Enjoy what you've got until it can't do the job any more.

Well 100% future proof is kinda impossible. Let's say "near future proof" then.

Can't future proof. GPUs are obsolete almost as fast as Smartphones.

Most other parts don't move as fast though.

Eeyup.
You pick the best as you can and hope it's not out of date in a year's time.

breakthrough would be buying new components for my rig, i'm pleased with the performance i get and i plan to buy a new rig at the end of the year, you just buy a rig when yours dont work anymore and profit will be good
