We should not easily dismiss those "from a different era". Cloud is not new and innovative, as much as marketers want to sell is as such. We saw it in the mid-90's, just with a different name. And we saw the failures of those who rushed to adopt. We also saw the success of careful adopters, who have been using "the cloud" for that many years. Often these gray execs have a lot of experience to sift "hot and good" from "just hot". When the corporate culture cannot tolerate IT failure, those who have seen the failure become much more cautions. And those who have seen fads may want to wait awhile to let a technology mature and prove longevity.The desire for longevity, however, is one I think may / should fade away. Technology is moving too fast, and we are in a generation of throw-away technology (think about current life-span of a cell phone!). Rather than looking for greatest longevity, perhaps IT should be designing for change. Position itself to take advantage of new technologies rapidly while minimizing risk. At the same time corporations must define and allow some failure points, recognizing these as the price of innovation (and, of course, factored into ROI analysis).

Bought a tonne of stuff for my water cooling project recently so not going to be buying anything else till Christmas. 


At that point maybe a GPU for my secondary rig (G3258 + HD6870). Probably an RX480 or GTX 1060 just so I can test the bottleneck haha. 


I also want to upgrade to a 34" curved 1440 monitor but that will have to wait till February bonus time.

Probably a case. Looking at either the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe once the tempered glass version we saw at Computex comes out, or a Mastercase Maker 5. I may think about another component, but saving is slow going for me so anything like a GPU or CPU may be outdated by the time I actually build my rig lol.

I would love to pick myself up one of the newer GPUs. Starting college has left me with no fun money ;)

I will not touch my PC until some of the parts become malfunctioning. 

Wasted way too much money on it. (6 SP120 fans, H100i water cooling for a unclockable i7-4770, new 780T case, colored cables).


I will wait for the whole system die on me. 

I still want this pc to last at least 3 years, preferably 4-5 years.

Then I will throw everything out. Build my self a budget/mid range mini itx PC in the node 304, if I can even find one at that point of time.

If it is not broken, let's fix till it is.

Looking out for VEGA so GPU's yes... OR another DDR4 Dimm if the games need that.

9 of 10 voices in my mind say I'm crazy. The tenth hums the melody of Tetris.

I would want a Gtx 1080 or a 4k monitor.

Second GPU. That way I can comfortably mess with custom bios and ocing

Bleigh!  Ever hear of AC series?

Well, I pretty desperately need a new PSU, since my PSU in my second PC can't cope with a 750 Ti. Then a new HDD or SSD, since it's currently running of some old 250GB drive which for some reason plays the windows XP sound on start up. Then I need a load more hard drives, for servers and things, and a way to mount a rackmount server. And after all that, I can think about upgrading my GPUs.

Main Gaming Rig:


Core i7-4770, Cryorig M9i Cooler, ASUS B85M GAMER, 8GB HyperX Fury Red 2x4GB 1866MHz, KFA2 GTX 970 Infin8 Black Edition "4GB", 1TB Seagate SSHD, 256GB Crucial m4 SSD, 60GB Corsair SSD for Kerbal and game servers, Thermaltake Core V21 Case, EVGA SuperNOVA 650W G2.

Secondary PC:


i5-2500k OCed, Raijintek Themis, Intel Z77GA-70K, 8GB HyperX Genesis in grey, GTX 750 Ti, Gamemax Falcon case.
