Default What would Boosty do?

I've hit a wall with my desktop (figuratively of course). I ran out of things to improve!

I've got no more memory slots available, no more hard drive bays available, and no more expansion slots available.

Guess it'* time to rip all the guts out and transplant them into a Fiero?

Do what I would do. Blow 3 grand on a new setup, water cool it, and go balls to the walls with the hardware.

Jon... that is kinda rediculous... I like it!

Brian, I'm already 4.5K deep in this machine. It'* already liquid cooled, and they don't really offer better parts... Unless I wanted to step up to the brand new nvidia cards. It'* balls are smashing THROUGH the wall.

Oh sweet Jesus. Where has that been hiding! Looks like I'm doing a rebuild.

Hehe I keep updated really well on Overclock.net with new hardware. You have to use Xenons because the i7 doesn't support dual physical chips but the Xenons can be overclocked just bout the same as the i7.

Computers aren't like cars -- you can't just keep adding things, as you've noticed. If you're out of room to upgrade, then it'* time to replace the lighter upgrades. Swap your smaller sticks of memory for larger ones, for example. It all depends on what you use it for.

If you mostly browse GM Forum or do office-type work, look into another screen, or a nicer keyboard. If you mostly game, perhaps a new mouse or better video card. If you're just bored with it, look for different software or a new/second operating system. Or sink your would-be upgrade money into something else that can benefit your computer, like faster Internet or a new printer.
