Am I good now? Or do I need to buy even more stuff?

After researching on my own and getting info from multiple threads here on the LTT forums I've decided to buy into Linksys' Velop system. I currently have the "tall" node hooked up to my router, with one auxiliary node connected downstairs via Ethernet and a second auxiliary node connected over the 5G wifi backhaul normally used for Velop. 

 

This new setup is 4x'ing my 5 GHz WiFi and adds 50% more 2.4 GHz bandwidth over my previous setup. I'm going to buy a switch to make a few more items hardwired, but I'll still have about 25-30 WiFi devices. 

 

Is 3 nodes sufficient for 25-30 devices? Would buying even more be a waste of money, or a valid investment into my home network?

 

I'd really appreciate some feedback. Everything works fine right now. A stress test with all devices streaming (music on the speakers and video on the TVs/Computers) worked just fine, so clearly my home internet connection is sufficient. It's just a concern of wireless bandwidth. 

Yes, it's 2871 as in the year 2871. I traveled all this way, back in time, just to help you. And you thought your mama lied when she said you were special-_-

I wouldn’t be worried about that number of clients. The more important question is, do you have coverage in all of the areas you care about?

Looking to buy GTX690, other multi-GPU cards, or single-slot graphics cards:

Yes, the entire house is covered well.
