What hardware you currently running, what upgrades are you looking at getting soon?, should be interesting to look back at this thread in a few years and see what dinosaurs we were all running.

GeForce GTX 590
Intel Core i7-2700K / 3.50GHz
Asus Xonar Essence STX

GeForce GTX 860M
Intel Core i7-4810MQ / 2.80GHz

Both have 16GB R.A.M. and Windows 7; The laptop has crappy onboard sound, but the Xonar Essence STX is absolutely amazing. I can't listen to my music without it now.

I'm not interested in upgrading at the moment, but i'd very much like to downgrade; Unfortunately all my old computers have fallen apart from overuse, so i'd like to get something a little older, maybe in a Windows 98, so i can play my classic games such as Z again. :)

  • FX-8350 Eight-Core 4.0Ghz /Processor
  • GTX 960 4GB /Graphics Card
  • 12 GB /RAM

My RAM is actually low in Mhz, my graphics card could do with upgrading for Vive stuff, limit for new card is £200, limit for new RAM is £145.

Using a 'Asus Crosshair V Formula Z AMD 990FX' motherboard so it is capable to have memory up to 2133 (O.C). Any suggestions on decently speedy RAM?
