  2. My next upgrade is a new video card which isn't listed as an option.

    My existing system still has enough life in it. Down the road a bit is a new CPU, mobo, and RAM but I'm in no rush.

  4. Does an HDMI video capture device count? Maybe a Hauppauge HD PVR2.

  7. Did an upgrade about 2 months ago to these items:

    1200 watt Corsair PSU
    Gigabyte Z77-D3H M/B
    Intel 3770K CPU
    8 GB G.Skill Ripjaws RAM
    Sapphire 7950 OC GPU
    Divco Dual Digital4 TV card

    Still need to buy a SSD, extra 8 GB RAM and a NAS. I did do an upgrade to Windows 8, but due to some problems I had to go back to my Window 7 until they sort a few issues out with it. At least it only cost me $40 for it

    I want to build a new computer sometime this year, however my printer is old enough that chances are I will need to replace it soon.

    Yeah, it goes without saying. Something is bound to go tits up eventually.

    I suppose I'll build another computer soon, even though my last build (in computer details) is adequate.
    Pull! Bang! Darn!

    Might make more sense to me to have multiple choices. I have a few computers so when I buy something I just about always order another external hard disk and some other peripherals as well. My next larger purchase will be a mother board and CPU combo.

    That option was not avail.

  11. Some day I will replace my monitor with one that does not change color every time I move my head half an inch; color-correcting photos is something of a challenge.

    I've been building mine up incrementally since I did an Ivy Bridge build six months ago or so. I'd hate to stop and think how much its adding up to.
    But I'm stopping now. Really. No, I mean it.

    really depends how bad ass haswell turns out to be; if it lives up to expectations, then probably a 4770k and new motherboard.

    I picked 'Video capture card/device' although I actually bought a tuner. Just ordered another 3 tuners of HDHomeRun Prime. Wife wants HD in the bedroom too.

    You don't need another HDHomeRun Prime just to have HD in another room. We have only one but can watch on any computer in the house. Unless you need more tuners, of course.

    I upgraded my router to N finally. I guess thats something.

    Other than that nothing really.

    I would like to upgrade my aging dual core someday.

    However between car maintenance and my ever growing and demanding movie collection I haven't put my resources to a new computer yet.

    Whole new computer system for me later in the year - Ivy Bridge i7 for video work, with decent ram and a bucket-load of disk space - probably a 256GB SSD as primary, and a pair of 3TB Greens as secondary, maybe a fast 1TB as a working drive as well. Don't care about graphics card so much, as it won't get much gaming use. Before I sort that, however, I need network file storage - have my eye on a 7-Bay NAS. Now all I need to organise is the finances........

    Yeah, that. We have 3 PCs and an extender. We also go to bed by 10:00 PM and a lot of the shows we like get recorded.

    I'm supposed to upgrade it? It seems like it was just yesterday, in 2004 when I built it, and it still works fine???

    Somehow, seriously doubt that. xD

    P.S.
    I was fortunate enough, when my PSU blew on this box, under warranty, that they installed MSI's Z68A-G43 (G3) && therefore was able to upgrade Sandy i5-2400 to my current i7-3770 (Ivy) and that makes me somewhat content - for a little while, at least; I can understand where zzyzzx is coming from, but '2004' is a little much! =)

    Edit: Oh and '05 above, as well

    Current 2x3TBs are getting full. Actively searching for NAS options, 4/5 disk Raid5. Pricing is higher than I expected it to be. May just build my own in a mid-tower.
    Have a good one,

  26. Already go it but... Acer 27" 2560x1440 monitor. The extra real estate (over 22" 1920x1080) is really nice.

    As stated in post #8 I did end up replacing my printer but the planned system upgrade took a little longer than predicted. I just finished upgrading my primary PC with a new motherboard, more RAM, and a Haswell i5 CPU. The next upgrades will be for to the HTPC I built using my old motherboard, CPU and RAM. I want to add a storage drive and either a capture card or a CableCARD tuner.

  28. Following through on post #11 I now have an Asus ProArt 24" monitor which is a pleasure to use. My five-year-old desktop is good enough for what I do, so unless something goes bang there will be no upgrades for me.

    Well, what ended up going tango uniform was, you guessed it, Timmy, a Seagate HDD. Got a couple of HGST 4TB HDDs from B&H.

    Oh, and a Dell proprietary PSU in a secondary home machine. Had to really hunt a replacement down.
