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

    It really depends if Intel get round to releasing their desktop 10nm CPUs this year or not. If they do, then i'll more than likely be swapping out my mobo, CPU and probably memory too...if not, then probably nothing.

    Rumours are all over the place but generally place them as being available next autumn but we'll see.

    CPU
    Motherboard
    Ram
    new NVMe

    I think is time for my i7 2600k to rest a little.
    I hope that AMD 3000 series will be good.

    Bought a Samsung 860 Evo 500gb on boxing day. I will most likely upgrade my CPU (using a 2500k) which means motherboard and ram, have to be upgraded as well.

    I would like to put my garden chair back to garden and get proper chair for PC... Other than that, hopefully nothing.

    GPU and Monitor, 7700K lacking in productivity but not terribly.

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

    I'm hoping Ryzen 2 will be better for gaming since I'm tempted to upgrade from my 3570k. Of course upgrading my CPU also means new RAM (currently DDR3) and mobo. I'm somewhat tempted to upgrade my GPU too and perhaps replace my 1440p monitor that died a while back, but it depends. The prices of the gtx 1000 series (post release) and rtx series did not impress me where you're also an early adopter for raytracing. If I'm building most of the system, I may also get another SSD, currently I don't use one after my old one became faulty, prices were high and and just got used to it when they've dropped since the biggest issue is boot times that you can just do something else while it boots. I've also been tempted to get a new case, but I'm not sure whether the price will be justified. Lastly I want to replace my aio water cooler with an air cooler for better thermals than my current one I got from a bundle, sound and less potentially complications.

    So it could be a big year for my build, but we'll have to see what happens. I was tempted with the intel 9000 series, but then the prices and performance as well as hardware vulnerabilities didn't persuade me. I will admit part of me wants to upgrade due to occasionally BSoDs I never fully diagnosed, though I did notice a CPU bottleneck the past year or so with demanding use.

    I've just bought a 500gb Samsung 970 Evo SSD.
    Ideally I'd want to upgrade my GTX 1060 - preferably to a much more powerful AMD card as I have a 4k Freesync monitor.

    I'm not planning upgrading any. My previous PC went pop at the start of 2018 so I have an i7-8700 rig now and the only way I'm going to upgrade from my 2080 Ti is to win a RTX Titan in a competition (hint, hint). A cheap second round of high refresh 4K monitors would definitely tempt me.

    Whole new computer, trading in my current i5-4690K/GTX 1060 6GB rig for a Micro ITX 4k/60 setup.
