You have $250 to upgrade this machine. What do you do?

Recommended Posts

I buy a large crate of beer, a PS4, and a baseball bat.

You could get a second 670 or try o sell it and get something like a R9 290 aftermaket. I would also say maybe a new keyboard and/or mouse? More SSD/HDD.

If you really want/need to spend 250$ to upgrade your PC and that 128GB SSD is all the storage you've got, buy 1 - 3TB HDD or two.

 

If not, why not save just in case if sh*t hits the fan?


Never trust my advice. Only take any and all advice from me with a grain of salt. Just a heads up.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. It's tough even finding a 670 these days, although I did find some on eBay, but that seems a little sketchy.

Great input though, really appreciate it.


Wannabe enthusiast...proud owner of a 2005 STi though. BRAAAP!
