  1. Hmm, ok. I havent done any benchmarking before but I just ran CrystalDisk and got this result. Good or bad? i have no idea what i am looking at.
  2. Thanks for replying! Would anything I have be reusable or is everything just too outdated?
  3. Hey There! I have been on the same rig for about 5 years and I am ready to upgrade. Or start from scratch and get a whole new system. I will go ahead and list what my current rig has (I was new please dont judge;) and what i am hoping to get out of my system. Looking for a recommendation of upgrading or starting over and what parts you would suggest for both. First, the 5 bullets. 1. Budget & Location ~$1000 US. There is a little bit of leeway over and under for performance but that is about where my budget currently is. 2. Aim This is going to be a daily driver. I recently started work from home due to, well, you know and that also means i am gaming more. My current system just inst performing as well on newer titles and i would like to do some VR eventually so a system that can at least be future proof for VR gaming would be ideal. 3. Monitors I have 2, 22" monitors. I plan on using those for now but eventually upgrading to an ultrawide. 4. Peripherals I have a mouse and Keyboard already, The current system has Windows 10 but I lost the product key so If i need a new hard drive or if it no longer recognizes this as the same ps then I will need a new license. 5. Why are you upgrading? My current system just isnt up to snuff anymore (and its a heater. Literally, In the winter I do not need to run the heat, I just play video games and the house heats right up.) My current Rig: (Why are product names so freakin long?!)
