    Everything apart from the case and power supply. Unless I win the upgrades, I'll still be on my 2011 i7 2600K system in 2019.

    I think I'll get an extra 8GB of RAM, for a total of 16GB, because 8GB are a bit small now that I use VMs xD

    Nothing at all. I am perfectly happy with my system which should see me ok for another couple of years yet. Not that there is anything worthwhile to justify the huge expense of changing platforms anyway. With the disgraceful price of memory these days it's just as well I don't need to make the jump to DDR4.

    GPU that is up to VR standards, rather than my R9 380 which is a bit iffy.

    +1 I need that too. Or my back will break very soon.

    But my main plan this year is to go liquid. Oh, and change PSU for more quiet...

    Monitor and new keyboard to use my Surface Book as my desktop. If prices come down a bit then I might look to build a new desktop. If not then I might never own a desktop again...

    Unless prices on Video Cards and Ram come down, I'm not sure I will be doing any upgrades this year.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2018?

    I would like to jump up to 4K but a 1080 Ti and 4K monitor could just be to expensive.

    New monitor for myself so my wife can get her hands on my current monitor (her cheap HP screen has developed a fault after 4 years)

    Also, really want a new SSD above 256GB as keep running out of storage for Steam games

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2018?

    I am already at 4K with 2 GTX 1080s...though my CPU platform, i7 3930K @4.2 ghz with 32GB or ram is getting dated. I wanted to upgrade while it still had some gaming chops left because my wife takes the old parts for her builds and enjoys gaming as much as do. Her i7 970 is getting long in the tooth these days. Point being after the disastrous bugs that just dropped apparently affecting even Intel's next gen 9 stuff, unless Ryzen + is insanely awesome I may hold off one more year for the next CPU product launches.

    Done me a good 10 years though. Don't want to scrimp on a replacement, however never seem to have enough coin in pocket
    It's probably a cap that's going bad.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2018?

    Hopefully a R7 1700 (Or Zen+/2 equivalent) + 32gb ram, but ram prices are currently putting a stop to that and may do for the whole year.

    As it is I use my PC for productivity and as much as my 3570k is getting a bit behind luckily I chucked 16gb ram in back when I built it so the push isn't too urgent.
