Default My current build is 7 years old this month

I built my current desktop PC in January, 2012. That makes it 7 years old this month. It has remained the same since except for me changing out the original 16 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz RAM to 16 GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3 2133 MHz because a stick of that original Vengeance RAM kept going bad on me despite repeated RMAs.

Also, the only other thing that I kept changing/upgrading was the graphics card. I originally included a GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores which was then upgraded to the GTX TITAN (2013) and then a GTX 980 Ti and now finally a GTX 1080 Ti.

I can play Battlefield V at 1440p at ultra settings with an average fps of around 90-100 depending in the map/situation.

Lastly, I also did change the monitor (Samsung SyncMaster S23A700D), speakers (Corsair SP2500), and mouse (Logitech G9x) because they started having issues.

I don't think I'll be doing any more changes/upgrades to this build. Next stop for me will be a completely new build but I am not sure when that will be as I am having no issues running any games as of now.

I was just thinking about this. My build is 7.5 years old (June 2011). I've been running at 4.4ghz the entire time. Same power supply, motherboard, cpu. Storage has been upgraded with a primary SSD and a WD Red, I added another 8gb of ram for like $60 for a total of 16gb, and the 6950 was traded out for a R9 Fury, but it's amazing how well it still continues to perform. I do not remember ever keeping a CPU/motherboard setup for so long in the past.

My computer is a Core i7 920 from 2008, and an HD 7970 from 2012. It holds up very well for its age.

Got a laptop since then with a Core i7 6700 and GTX 1060 3 GB for $1000. It is a great laptop but takes a **** when AA is enabled, and it looks like AA isn't even working most of the time (which is why I decided to go back to AMD).

I have a new rig in the works as I type. Saw Vega 64 on sale at NewEgg for $399 and made the jump. I plan to post a thread about it later. A lot has changed since 2008.

I also have a Core i7 920, but from march 2009 (so almost 10 years old). Has been running with 12GB tripple channel memory on a GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R motherboard and has been quite stable. 1-2 years ago I decided to overclock it from 2.6 to 3.6 GHz (still air-cooled). Still stable.

The major reason I want to upgrade is to get more memory. I don't expect the CPU to have changed all that much in speed. I have of course kept GPU somewhat up2date (AMD 480 right now).

My CPU and mobo is from 2013. My ram is from 2015 (only to get a matching pair) and my GPU is from late 2016.

I'm about due for a CPU upgrade but the prices are insane and performance increases are kinda disappointing.

I think it is worthwhile to spend on a new CPU for you gays and throwing in a 1080 or equivalent card. No point getting anything more than that. You can do a decent 1000 caps rig these days.

Yeah my home PC is for the most part about 7 years old now as well. I have however in the past 3 years upgraded the GPU, added a 1TB SSD for storage, and replaced the PSU that crapped out.

But just still no need to upgrade the CPU/motherboard/RAM. 2600K Sandy Bridge still getting the job done.

Enjoyed Divinity Original Sin 2 on a watercooled Q9450 + ATi 5870 this Christmas at 1920x1200, low. From 2008. Not a bad experience at all, almost finished it. It's pretty cool to see most cores utilized on modern games

All of my hardware is from 2012 as well, only exception being the video card. Every year I look at the new CPU's and other hardware and search for a good reason to uograde anything.

I still have yet to find a good reason to do anything but swap out the video card, so I keep hanging on to the old setup. Sure has saved me a lot of money.

I just upgraded my q6600 4GB 4870 rig to a pre built HP rig i5 8400 16GB 1050 ti with 128 GB NVME drive and 1 TB HD for 1000 Canadian after taxes, pretty decent upgrade as i'm just a casual gamer now, bought a new high end office chair and a new 32" 2K monitor to go with it, actually really impressed with this little guy, especially boot times from off to desktop, around 15 to 20 seconds.

I'm still waiting for the WOW difference we all got from P4 to Core2Duo and then again to the Core i architecture.

The first gen Core i really were ahead of their time. Every similarly priced chip after that seemed to be two steps forward, 1.9 steps back type of incremental improvements.

I put my HD 7970 into my Ryzen 2700X PC while I waited for my Vega 64 to arrive. I was surprised at how little improvement there was over the Core i7 score. While the physics score of the new chip blew the old one out of the water, gaming performance was clearly held back by the HD 7970 far more than the i7 920.

Say what you want about the benchmark's methods, I found the results interesting:

HD 7970/Core i7 920: https://www.3dmark.com/fs/17653297 (6780 total, 5030 Physics)
HD 7970/Ryzen 2700X: https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/31937232 (8411 total, 20221 Physics)
And for S&G's (no modifications done to memory timings/GPU clock/CPU clock, etc.):
Vega 64/Ryzen 2700X: https://www.3dmark.com/fs/17711480 (17787 Total, 19895 Physics)

Yes, but it's not for my PC. As stated later in that thread, it's for my upcoming giveaway.

Okay, I'm just kidding. I didn't by a TITAN RTX.

I think my current build must be 5 or 6 years old (based on when the chipset was released) and it still runs games at full quality at 2k... but my kids still game on my older PC which I *think* is a heavily overclocked Athlon 64 with a pair of GTX 670s in SLI which is probably close to 11 or 12 years old.

Not sure how long that thing will keep going, but it can actually still play a lot of games at 1080p; just not high quality or with AA. It basically just plays Fortnite all the time anyway - though I see my oldest got it running Apex Legends and it doesn't look too bad.

Feb 2012 for mine, upgraded to an RX480 in Black Friday 2016 from a 7870OC.

Since I just upgraded the monitor today to 1440P, I think the 480 is getting stretched!
Certainly runs hotter than in 1080P.

I have to agree with you in this one as te game I play uses Cryengine and it taxes 8 cores pretty good.

Even during that time, I could always run things on max settings.

My current upgrades (pics soon) should be good for a while, plus I only use 1080p because I get migraines and super high FPS > resolution and keeps the headaches away.

Invest in a variable refresh monitor; really cuts down on eye strain.
That is the only other major upgrade I'm considering, though my current 144hz non freesync monitor has no problems when I use the RTX 2080. A main reason I ordered a Radeon VII for my other system was b/c while the 1070TI looks great, it would sometimes cause headaches b/c it can't get to 144fps where my 2080 system does not.

Considering the Samsung 49" 1080p freesync ..and then my TRADING BATTLESTATION will be complete.

& I know it may sound extreme to non traders/investors, but for what I do you really do need two solid systems (for redundancy) and a lot of screen area for stock charts!
