Been about 2.5 years since I built my computer, and it's running pretty well, but I feel the need to upgrade anyways.
-AMD Phenom X4 9950
-G.Skill 8GB DDR2 800 RAM
-500GB 7200rpm Hitachi
-GeForce GTX280 Video Card
-Corsair 750w Power Supply
-AMD Phenom II X6 910T
-Maybe keeping the same RAM (need to do more research)
-120GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD
-1.5TB Western Digital Black (in eSATA case)
-Keeping video card until I see how well it runs Diablo III
-New case (much smaller and quieter than my monster case now)
Main goal is just to get things a little more "snappy." I guess I've been spoiled by the instant-on characteristics of my iPad, and now even the few seconds it takes to wake up from sleep is annoying, also how slowly it opens programs. Also one of my big gripes is how noisy my setup is right now. So I'm going to be investing in high quality quiet fans and a fan controller to keep everything as quiet as possible. Also looking at eliminating the CPU fan and switching to a heatsink only setup.
This thread doesn't need to be about my computer build, talk about whatever you want, just thought it would be fun to talk about PC hardware upgrades and new stuff coming out or whatever. I'm not a computer expert by any means, I can build one, but troubleshooting and advanced overclocking and stuff like that is way over my head. Anyone have any opinions on my computer refresh? Or wanna talk about any other computer stuff?
