    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2017?

    Like many others, I have no plans for component upgrades.

    I might scratch build a new case though; having gone SSD only (no HDD or Optical drive now) it seems silly to have a tower which twice as big as needed. Sadly nobody seems to make tiny cases for full ATX motherboards, also a scratch build would be an interesting challenge!

    Increase to external HDD / NAS capacity, maybe but no internal components.

    Everything. Case, PSU... the only survivor will be my 850 evo

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2017?

    Not intending to upgrade any components this year.

    But I will increase the size of my smaller SSD's from 250GB if the 1TB or 2TB ones drop enough in price.

    Actually I have just seen the Nvidia post and I want to upgrade from my PG348Q to the upcoming 144Hz 4K HDR G-Sync Quantom Dot monitor, also the wife may want to upgrade from her PG279Q to one as well. I have been waiting for the 120Hz plus 4K G-Sync monitors

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2017?

    Mulling over the upgrade / replacement for my working but aging U2410, no idea currently what to replace it with.

    Would like to go all SSD for storage on the gaming rig but prices are still silly for large drives and even more so for the M.2 and U.2 types (which would be my choice)

    The new CPU / Chipsets could be intresting in what new features and upgrades they bring but currently not feeling it for Kabylake.

    A lot of what i am looking at arn't really upgrades mainly replacements for kit that is working all be it a few years old.

    Skylake i3-6100 in my HTPC up to Kaby Lake i5, TDP permitting. Just upgraded my internal storage to 9TB total, vastly preferable to external anything, now looking to fill it up with a bunch of 4k stuff.

    Either going to be z270 plus i5 or 8c/16t amd with a nice board (i like asus, hopefully a maximus type board will be available.) Nvme ssd, new case (hopefully corsairs obsidian range is updated soon) some rgb lighting. Ill stick with my gtx 970 strix for now. Black friday i got new mouse and keyboard. Just picked up a g29 wheel aswell so sorted on the extras. Dell 2408hc still works. Just case,cpu,mobo,ssd and rgb bits for me

    Much though I would like a Ryzen update, a new car comes first so I suspect funds for toys may be rather short.

    I'll probably upgrade my drives to 1tb ssd's if they go cheaper in the following the months. Also may upgrade my graphics card after vega comes out (price wars ). Finally i would upgrade my cpu cooler as the Noctua nh-d15 is starting to not cool properly; heat pipes ran out of gas?

    My Asus 980Ti has a fan not working and runs up to 80c on Overwatch. Wanted a 1080Ti but no word yet on when that will be out if ever. Might just get a 1080 on sale and send my 980Ti back to get fixed

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2017?

    The two things I'd like to upgrade this year are my router, and my video card. My CPU/RAM/HDD combination is still quite adequate.
    Replace my GTX-760 with a GTX-1070 (or 1080 if I can swing it).
    Replace my Apple AirPort router with something like the Asus RT-AC5300.
    I just updated to the Samsung 4k 28" screen (UE590), which is awesome BTW.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2017?

    None of them, i sold my z97+4790k+980ti setup before they lost more value and now i'm using an old socket775 system. I'll wait for PCIe 4.0 release, i think until mid 2018 i won't buy anything.
