    I don't think getting faster ram will improve performance, at least gaming wise it makes no difference. Usually the higher latency on faster ram makes it operate pretty much exactly the same as 1333 or 1600 ram, just pricier. So if you're on a budget it might be a relief to not need to spend ~$50 on new ram.

    I'm getting this in the mail today:

    Out for delivery as of 10 minutes ago. So stoked, can't wait to have a good gaming desktop again. Been waiting a week for it and it worked out perfectly since my budget was $400. Will upload some pictures later with my SyncMaster hooked up with WoW on full settings (hopefully). I plan on upgrading with another 8gb ram, new amd or nvidia video card, and a SSD. Should be a complete and utter beast at that point.

    Here's the specs:

    Windows 10 operating system

    AMD A4-5300 accelerated processor

    8GB system memory for advanced multitasking

    DVD/CD burner

    1TB hard drive for ample file storage space

    AMD Radeon HD 7480D graphics

    4 USB ports

    Wireless and wired network connectivity

    Additional ports

    I thought it was a pretty good deal for that price.

    I feel that picture was setup that way on purpose since it was popular in early 2000 to have pictures that made you seem unkempt. Things like duck taped computer cases and messy rooms.
    However there is clear evidence this person is in fact very clean and just dumped their recycling next to their machine to make it seem like they are filthy. 
    There is a noticeable lack of staining. Anyone who keeps their trash like that would have lots of coke staining and their chair would have more crumbs. The monitors look freshly wiped down. Since they are white the dirt should be more noticeable. The Ghost Rider pillow cases should also show a bit more dirt level since they are in direct contact with the trash.

    Hmm, well, mine is a bit weird probably, but, here it is;
    Case Corsair 750D airflow edition
    Mobo Gigabyte GA970A DS3P
    PSU Corsair HXI high performance CSR-HX750I
    CPU AMD FX-8 9590
    Cooler BK019 Dark Rock Pro3
    Ram 2 x HXF White 8gb
    HD Seagate Barracuda 2tb/64mb
    GPU MSI GTX 980Ti Gaming 6gb

    Monitor is an AOC 28' HD4K, but, really wish i'd got something with more than 60hz... really regret not getting a 144hz monitor :(

    It plays all the games really well, though i rarely use it at anything other than 2560x1440, which seems to be the optimal screen resolution for most games.

    I don't need to post mine as my genitals large enough.

    Hey guys!

    So i'm planning in the near future to upgrade my old rig. What do you think about it's current state :smile:

    I'm currently using an old classic case with Nvidia GeForce GT 240 + AMD Athlon II x2 250 , 4GB DDR3 RAM , gigabyte old MB , but atleast it has got some cool features like 4 slots of ram , pci-e x16 3.0 , so not planning to actually change that.

    I've got something like that : upgrade my CPU from AMD Athlon II x2 250 ---> AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
                                                  upgrade my GPU from Nvidia GeForce GT 240 ----> Nvidia GeForce gtx 1050
                                                  upgrade my RAM from 2GB DDR3 ----> 8GB DDR3
                                                  upgrade my classic mini-tower case ----> Deepcool TESSERACT BF
    And that's basically it (my budget is ~ 300-350$...Innitially i planned on changing my MB too together with the CPU , something like (i3-4130 + H81M-E) , so basically some cheap mb+cpu combo :)

    Tell me what you think ;)

    Thanks in advance
