    Not much as I recently swapped my Msi GTX660 for an EVGA GTX1070. SSD, memory, and CPU are all good enough. Monitors are big enough as well (2560x1080 and 1920x1080)

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

    Maybe CPU, motherboard, RAM. I get enticed by all the reviews and benchmarks telling me how much faster new stuff might be but actually I'm pretty satisfied with the way my PC performs.

    If I do go down that route, I'll be looking for an 8 thread CPU as a minimum. Perhaps Ryzen but if it's not especially well priced - 2nd hand Intel route.

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

    I'll be getting myself an AM4 motherboard with DDR4 RAM and a new processor. Also need to finally upgrade to an NVMe SSD.

    I just hope the APUs AMD brings out allow crossfire with the RX480 I have, that would encourage me to get an APU rather than more CPU cores. I'm looking forward to the Ryzen launch, been waiting for it for a while now. Have had my FX8350 die on me along with my Asus Crosshair motherboard and spent a good £200 I didn't want to on replacements to keep my system going.

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

    I'm using a Sabertooth Z77 and a 3770k. I'm looking to upgrade to a 7700k and a Maximus IX Hero.
    My monitor is still 1080P, so my GTX 1060 will be fine for a while.

    Going to be an expensive year for me, Then again it always is when it's my pc.

    2x980ti's > 2x1080ti's or next 1xTitan X
    512GB Samsung XP941 > 1TB Samsung 960 pro
    27inch Asus ROG Swift 1440P 165hz IPS > 27inch Asus ROG Swift 4k 144hz IPS HDR
    VR headset(maybe)

    So far in 2017, Bought a new chair Thermaltake GTC500 Comfort(steel frame) to replace less than 2 year old office works garbage leather chair(wooden frame that warped)!
    Quite impressed with "gaming" chair, Can't believe I am saying this!

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

    New Monitor: Dell U2715H,
    New Mobo:Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7,
    New CPU: i7 6700K,
    New GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1060 Winforce2 OC 6G
    New Case: NZXT H440

    This now sits alongside a beQuiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W; Samsung 960 Pro 1Tb; Corsair CMK32GX4M4A2800C16 Vengeance LPX 32Gb; Logitech 2.1 Speaker System Z623; Headphones Sennheiser HD598SE and Noctua NH-U12S.

    To pay for that lot I had to sell off my old stuff:-SM950 Pro 512Gb, Gigabyte GTX 1070 Gaming G1; Acer Predator XB321HK, ASRock Z170 Extreme 7+, Thermaltake Core V71.

    Still thinking about selling the RAM and replacing it with just 16Gb of DDR 4, also have 4 x Samsung Evo 120Gb SSD. Going to put them into a RAID 10 array and see how they perform, if it'ss good then I just might sell the Samsung 960 Pro 1Tb. Oh, by the way, I'm going to offload a Creative Sound Blaster ZxR since the Creative Soundcard inbuilt in the motherboard is very good indeed.

    I don't do gaming, just stream music and the like, went a little OTT initially, now have some of my hard earned cash back. I think the thing that I'm most pleased about is the NZXT H440, it's stylish, well built and extremely quiet.

    Just need a video card. My 770GTX is getting rather old and outdated. 1070 is overpriced like crazy and I do not like the 3/6 GB and 192 bit 1060. Only option is the RX 480 MSi or Asus.

    Graphics is my plan if Vega is any good and decently priced.

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

    New ryzen 6/12 or a 8/16 chip depending upon price with a nice ROG board and 16 gig of ddr 4 ram as I dont see the point as a gamer to having 32 gig.

    Nice nvme ssd to run win10 off and a vega card to replace my aging 290x.

    New EK water blocks unless the cpu block fits or can use an adapter kit for the new board (hopefully).

    Storage hard drives to 2x 8TB and a pair of 1080Tis and possibly a bigger PSU to cope!

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

    Nothing planned.

    6700K and a GTX 980 is enough - although I did briefly toy with the idea of a small form factor GTX 1070, but decided against it.
    We need a new shed first.

    I may swap out my 2TB drives for 4TB units at some point, but I have enough 2TBs for RAID10 so I don't think I'll need to do it this year.

    Nothing planned but most of my recent upgrades have been opportunistic ones when I've spotted a deal.

    Q1 will be a going from a FX8350 @ 4.85 on a Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 and 16GB DDR3 to a Ryzen 8/16, an Asus X370 board of equivalent level to my Sabertooth and 32GB of DDR4. Everything thing else will swap over with exception of my CPU waterblock (currently have a EK Supremacy).

    I'd love to say a new Rizen CPU/MB/RAM/Case deal with a new monitor to go with my new 480 but with child 2.0 on the way in a couple of months I'm realistically going to say nothing...
