    Pretty much getting to the stage where I'll upgrade the whole system. Was going to do it over the Christmas period, but decided a new bed and bedroom furniture was more of a priority.

    Currently nothing. (2700x and 1080ti) But if a good 2nd hand bargain came up towards the end of the year, then maybe a 3700x
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2019?

    Looking to replace my i7 3930K with 32GB on a Rampage IV when Zen 2 (ie 3000 series) launches this year. If the rumors are true I'll like go with a 12 or 16 Core variant, high end mainstream motherboard likely made by Asus (asrock and gigabyte also draw my eye) with 64 gigs of ram and nice fast 1TB Nvme drive (love 960 Evo I have now just want more space).

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2019?

    Maybe my GPU. Upgraded the rest of my system about 18 months ago with plans to get a new GPU shortly after, but prices have been and still are pretty inflated in my opinion. Used to be each gen you could get more performance for the same price. But more than 3 years on, the £250 I paid for a R9 390 wouldn't get me much more today. An RX 590 or an overclocked 1060. A 10% max performance bump in over 3 years is poor.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2019?

    Built nearly all new back in August, that's it for me for a few years. Since taking up carpentry and wood carving as a hobby, the PC is no longer my priority when I have some money to spend.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2019?

    Feels like time to upgrade the HD7970 - it cost me a fortune at the time, but I've had great service from it. If I were still gaming at 1920*1200 then it's still a perfectly capable card, but now I'm up to 4k it's struggling. Bonus came around, so... splurged on an RTX2080 today. Hopefully I can recoup a few quid on the existing card too.

    Other than that: i7 6700k, 64Gb RAM and a few SSDs are doing everything that I can see me needing for quite some time yet.

    Probably an SSD when prices drop more. I might get a graphics card too when Navi arrives and a freesync monitor.
