Do you have a component or peripheral that goes with you from build to build?

Pretty much replaced everything in the last three years. Only my wired ancient Xbox controller is still with me, had that for a long time.

 

 

I keep seeing people mentioning stuff and realising... oh yeah... I've got one of those too.  Xbox 360 type controller that I bought way back in 2010, still works perfectly to this day.

NO RGB aside from MB and AIO pump. Triple 27" Monitor setup (1x 144hz, 2x 75hz, all freesync/freesync 2)

System 2: Asus M5 MB, AMD FX8350, 16GB DDR3, Sapphire RX580, 30TB of storage, 250GB SSD, Silverstone HTPC chassis, Corsair 550W Modular PSU, Noctua cooler, liteon bluray/dvd/rw, 4K HDR display (Samsung TV)

Yes, someone mentioned a 256mb sd card. I'm pretty sure if I searched long enough I'd find a 16mb one. 

 

Also hdd, I've got a few in a draw that I've replaced over the years ranging from 40gb to 160gb. Would be interesting to go though them and see what's on them, if anything.

...most of my peripherals actually transferred from my old build to my current one, with the exception of replacing my mouse because it ultimately fucked itself. For reference, I have a Corsair Vengeance K65 that I bought in 2016 and a Corsair Sabre RGB that fits my hand perfectly.

my entire flight sim rigging.

it's composed of

 

  • 24" Samsung Monitor
  • Saitek x-52 
  • Track IR 5
  • DSD Trackzilla switchbox
  • 8" mini monitor
  • Coolermaster Pro Keys s
  • Logitech g400
  • DIY wooden monitor stand that houses the trackzilla and smaller monitor underneath everything

Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

Now this makes complete sense. 

As the software improves you might upgrade the pc but unless the controls break there's very little to gain from changing them.

I've been using the same 1080p Dell 22" monitor that came with a Vostro package deal I bought in 2010, currently hooked to it's 4th build. I keep considering an upgrade, but 1080p is fine and I am too cheap to buy a variable-refresh gaming monitor. 

 

My secondary computer has one of these blue Microsoft optical mice hooked-up, that I've used since maybe 2002? It's outlasted everything, when the world as we know it ends, there will only be cockroaches and blue Microsoft optical mice roaming the planet.

if we are talking internals, for me its usually my harddrives/ssds that just keep moving build to build... till i broke the connector on it, had an old 40gb sata drive from several builds back..usually my psu as well as i usually get one that will last a good while.

Monitor.  That seems to be ending though. :/  

my next rig will be a complete redo and I’ll get my old but still very nice monitor going again on an old card and either pack it away as a backup or sell it as a unit.

I've still got some IDE hard drives kicking around in drawers, not to mention a KVM switch that I used to use about 17-18yrs ago. including all of thee cables... but it's only for PS2 mouse/keyboard and VGA video

A benq 22" 16:10 monitor, only a secondary these days, but its just the right res and size to read from. 

I've got a BenQ 22" 1080p 60hz LED monitor that I bought about 10yrs ago... Was using it right up until a couple of months ago as part of a triple monitor setup with 2x 27" Acer 75hz... Used it in portrait mode for displaying some websites that still insist on having tiny centre aligned columns only that fill perhaps 30% of the screen and increasing the scale only serves to make the header fill the whole damn screen.  :)

 

But I picked up a 144hz curved 27" as my main screen and shifted the other 2x 27" over to the left... So now it's redundant and I'll probably give it away to anyone who wants it. It's only got VGA and DVI inputs.

I have a mousepad that has four kittens on it that I picked up when I deployed overseas in 2011. It's been a part of every PC upgrade since, the only constant really. It looks pretty rough but I refuse to swap it out; I'm convinced the kittens are a good luck charm ;)

For me it's my mouse. A Logitech G300. Everything else has changed 3-4 times since I got it. I know it's not the best out there but it's been with me for so long (relatively speaking for tech) 

 

I couldn't imagine using another now. I even find myself at work trying to press buttons that aren't there. 

 

I'm even considering looking for a nos one now, as back up, just in case it dies on me. 

I tend to reuse anything that still works. Mice , keyboard, SSD, HDD, etc.

I have parts that get transferred or reused all the time. Had an EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 PSU that got used on a few rigs from 2014 to 2019. Drives get reused all the time. Depending on whether or not you see these all different computers, my GTX 1080 has been in a few systems (1 unique system then an ever evolving setup involving 2 cases, 3 CPUs and 5 motherboards). My Logitech G11 keyboard saw a couple of computers and my G710 saw a few more. I've reused cases a few times.

 

However, nothing compares to my old Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional. I bought it in early 2008. I only just replaced it 2 days ago with a Sound BlasterX AE-5 Pure. If it winds up being too buggy though, the ole X-Fi may find it's way back in.

hdd tend to last me about 1 1/2 builds before they're full. Still on a 500gb drive, don't like all that empty space sitting there. Probably next 6 months or so my secondary will be upgraded to a 1tb, anything relevant on the old one transferred over then it will be archived in the draw of forgotten drives. 

 

Maybe not the most cost effective way of doing things, but I see some logic in it.

I still have a Shuttle bare-bone Athlon 2500XP based system (Barton core) from 2005, including the LCD monitor purchased at the same time. Although technically still operational, it's sitting idly in it's original box (the Shuttle, not the monitor) as I don't have any use for it ATM. Slightly newer are the Cherry Linux-flavoured keyboard I'm typing this message on as well as the Logitech Trackball mouse. Haven't upgraded my systems (yes, plural) since 2014 or so, due to lack of funds, but I'm hoping at least one Zen2 based system could be procured in the future (currently running FM2 and FM1 based systems, although some old-ish Intel is also in use)

Oddly enough my storage.  My old mechanical drives just keep going and going so I use them as bulk storage for easy access to photos, music etc.

PSU and HDD have been with me since I built my first PC. As for peripherals, I've had my main monitor, a Dell G2410T for a very long time, and although it hasn't been with me since my first rig was built, I've been using my G403 for a long time.

i kept an antec P183 for over a decade, and it housed 3 systems.

 

a Samsung 213t lcd monitor i used for many years as a main display as a 1600x1200 23 inch IPS lcd display was almost unheard of in 2003, its only competitor was a 22 inch dell.(this was back when 15 and 17 inch 4:3 aspect lcd's were the norm) i used it for over a decade in total. for many years as main display then a secondary display when 24 inch, 1920x1200 displays became commonplace.

 

in modern times, i alternate hardware upgrades, in a tick/tock of cpu/main board/ram, then gpu. usually every 18-24 months assuming nothing dies unexpectedly.

 

my newest case is a phanteks enthoo evolv x. i plan to keep it for a long time too.

 

and of course my trusty ikea desk.  its been around more than 15 years. and its still nearly perfect.

 

and in a box i have a logitech z-5500 5.1 speaker set. still sounds awesome. no room currently to use it
