Looking to Upgrade

Post by Maniak » Thu Aug 06, 2020 8:28 pm

Hi there all,

I've been thrashing the poor wee computer over lockdown and am getting back into the simracing since then and feel it may be time to start the upgrade process again. Currently I have -

CPU - i3 4170
Ram - 16Gb DDR3
Mobo - Gigbyte B85M-D3H-A
Vid Card - GTX950 (2Gb ram)
Power Supply - 650W
Monitor - 21inch something, or the 32in TV @ 1920x1080
Wheel - G25!!
all in an old Lian Li case that is still going ok

It's a good bet that some of you out there may be upgrading as well - and I bet what you're leaving will still make me a happy person if I were to obtain it! Happy to chat deals and not in a rush so timing is not critical. PS - I'm in Wellington.

Cheers!
Maniak

There is about 3 - 4 people over at SCU who have upgraded their machines - Mattly being one of them.

Cheers Growler, I'll get on that board and see what happens.
