    Mostly I need a latest generation GPU to replace my GTX 670, but I haven't decided should I wait for Vega or just go for a GTX1070/1080.

    Build a Ryzen/Vega box, then decide on primary company platform for next 4 years.

    Ditto, plus a second, bigger SSD. Everything else is pretty sound already.

    I have athlon 5350 with 8gb ram, hdd 740Gb, internal radeon r3, I might go for the SSD but because my board has only 2 sata ports i might use the hdd and the DVD RW that i need for my job. This athlon cpu is more than capable for my needs. Playing Dota 2 fine, also casual player...

    Hmm. i5-4690k, 24GB ram, 256G 850 Pro, 2TB WD Black, GTX970, ol' 24" HP monitor... still handles even the most modern games with full pretties at 1920x1200, so, no upgrades probably until next year when 10 series cards drop in price and see if there are any modern monitors _worth_ getting.

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

    Honestly I just built a computer so I'm not really looking to upgrade it. But I'm very tempted to build a HTPC using old hardware, and I'm tempted to buy an i3-6100 and GTX 1050 Ti, but then I'll also need a new mobo and RAM

    I have splashed out on a GTX1070, three Crucial 525Gb SSDs and a Asrock H97m-ITX so that I can down size my gaming PC to something that will fit under me desk. I also bought a Nvidia Shield tablet which has been the biggest distraction as I play way to far into the early hours!

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

    For me it would be newer GPU and NV.ME M.2 SSD

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

    I will be replacing everything in the PC itself apart from the GPU (still happy with my GTX 970). I am hoping that Ryzen will make the CPU market competitive again:
    CPU
    RAM
    PSU
    Mobo'
    M2 SSD
    Case
    AIO CPU cooler

    Already done, outgoing :- AMD (Piledriver) FX-6300 3.50GHz ; MSI 990XA-GD55 AMD990X (socket AM3+); Corsair Vengeance LPX 1600MHZ 8Gb (2 x 4Gb) CL9 DDR3 CML8GX3M2A1600C9; XFX Pro XXX Bronze Edition 750W semi modular PSU; 120Gb Samsung 840 EVO SSD; Asus VN248H IPS monitor; 24x LiteOn Internal DVD Re-Writer - IHAS124-14;
    Antec 300 Mid Tower Case.
    In:- i7 6700K CPU; Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 LGA1151; Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1060 WF2 6GB ; Corsair CMK32GX4M4A2800C16 Vengeance LPX 32 GB (4x 8 GB) DDR4 2800 MHz CL16 XMP 2.0 ; BeQuiet 850 W Dark Pro 11 Modular PSU; Dell U2715H monitor; NZXT H440 ATX Mid Tower Case Matte Black/Red; Samsung Pro 960 NVMe M.2 1TB MZ-V6P1T0BW ( N.B. This is not actually installed as yet since I have 4 x 120Gb Samsung 840 EVO, operating in a RAID 10 array at the moment. Not bad performance either.

    I don't do gaming, into music streaming, anything from Indie to Opera. I also need PC for my language studies. I did consider Kaby Lake CPU and Mobos but quite honestly didn't see any outstanding performers/reviews for the same amount of money and RGB lit mobos are not for me.
