    Nothing much, recently rebuilt.

    Might add more storage if needed.

    Whole system in all honesty, might stagger the gpu side of things depending on if rtx2xxx is not updated.

    Might end up upgrading some of my my network gear and nas as well but they're not really urgent.

    Want to up my Ryzen 1700 to a Ryzen 3700/3800. Apart from that, everything else is good, in my main system, at least.
    Laptop, I want to upgrade the NVMe from 256GB to 512GB (maybe 1TB, if I get a good price), so I can dual boot Windows/Linux.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2020?

    GPU (5800/5900 from AMD? going from GTX 1070)
    CPU (looking forward to 4000 series AMDs, up from 1700X)
    RAM (got 3000MHz, might jump to 3600MHz)
    (In that order)

    Mobo, CPU, RAM. Still running Z77 3770k DDR3 and a bit 'out of the game' with new component tech :/

    Motherboard, CPU, RAM, Case and CPU Cooler.

    I already have the Motherboard and RAM. CPU arrives tomorrow, and Case and CPU Cooler will be ordered soon.

    PSU and GPU will be transferred over to the resulting system.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC components are you looking to upgrade in 2020?

    Did the complete system last year.

    I also doubt the new Intel cpus will run on the socket 1151 / z390 chipset so that is that part ruled out If the prices are right I may swap out one of my NVMe drives for a larger one, definitely going to keep an eye on the next Nvidia cards as a potential upgrade later this year. Also need a new headset, but may opt to go for something with bluetooth to link up to my TV for late night viewing without disturbing the family.

    Basically, I want all the new shiny things
