Let me know if you see sales.

Postby Donaramu » Wed Nov 27, 2019 7:00 pm

Looking to upgrade at least my CPU,MB and RAM. Looking for the best bang for my buck. Leaning towards the ryzen 7 2700x or ryzen 5 3600. Seems the 3600 is a little better. But basically, both are much better than what I have. I haven't upgraded for many years.

Also looking for some deals on SSD. Maybe even a case if there is a nice one cheap. Just let me know if you see anything.

I missed 1 good mobo sale. Now I don't see any I like for price between $90-$130 sale price. Given, I maybe willing to go higher. Just trying to keep the update around $500. So far I am at $300. :)

And now I think I am just gonna mod my case. Might be fun.

Done for now. I will still be using much of my old PC. I still have a okay PSU and GPU, along with other items. And I will most likely just mod my case. I couldn't see a reason for spending more money on a case, when cutting some crap out to open some areas up and adding some fans would do. It won't be a rich person's build, but will do much better than what I am using now.

n/m.... I picked up a case. Around $550.... Not that much, but I should really stop spending. I told my wife I'd keep the upgrade under $500. Which isn't much vs what some of you spend.

N/m I picked up a 144hz 27" 1080p monitor and a cpu cooler for my old pc so when I change over. Now I spent over $700....

Yes, I know 1080 is now dated, but the 2k monitors were a bit more and well, I thought I'd give it a go here for a while and see what I think.

I have to stop spending.
