    Still rocking a 4690k 4.5ghz here, it's getting a bit long in the tooth but I don't think it's holding my GTX 1080 back so I'll hang onto it for a while yet.

    Rocking an old dell i7 860 (2.8ghz, circa 2008-9) with one of those WD dual drives with 120gbssd and 1tb spinner in one drive.

    8gb ddr3 - mostly just office tasks these days and it runs like a champ on windows 10, no problems with 6-10 programs open at once.

    Less then 24 hours old as I only managed to set everything up yesterday properly. By that standard my setup is a baby. i7 7820x + Asus Posiedon 1080Ti is going to last me for quite some time to come :D!

    No, I am waiting for the new PC case to turn up so that I can then get the RADs + fans etc before I start pushing the CPU.

    Ah the memories - I still have an Epox board at my parents place, that thing was more trouble than it was worth.

    Rocking Haswell from 2013 I think. i5-4670K, running at 4.4GHz.

    Took the opportunity to move to a 500GB SSD when W10 was released as a free upgrade (did the ol' fresh install trick), chucked in another 8GB RAM to bring it to 16GB as well.

    Currently on a GTX970, will look to upgrade the GPU in the next cycle. Other than that the rig is rocking along nicely.

    Still rocking an Ivy Bridge (i5-3470) and a B75-based mobo thta I assembled back in 2013. I upgraded this setup to an i7-3770 that was selling for like US$100 just about 6 months ago

    Aside from that I've only upgraded the video card thrice..going from a 7700 to a 7950 and a side grade to a 660 Ti due to the 7950 dying. :|

    Looks like this Intel setup gonna last me a while longer. :D

    My second rig by the way is in pieces and has been parted out to family.

    I wonder though if anyone is planning to upgrade video cards right now. With the mining craze and all some of my friends have advised me not to buy any new video card right now since all of them have jacked up prices.

    1060 3 or 6gb at this point in time for me. same price bracket as 7950 (originally), but i havent bought anything yet....
    +80-90% performance.
    R9 390x would be excellent bang for buck if you can find one.
    but i guess the 7950 was pretty cheap.

    Video cards are slowly dropping. Eth mining is nearly dead.

    The 1060 got to 400 but some are under 300 now.

    MrChilled: get a k chip. Most do nearly 5ghz - much more than 10%.

    finally time to look at an upgrade. rocking an overclocked 2600k since it was launched. 8700k is the first release since that I've deemed worthy of doing a full mobo+ram+cpu+cooler upgrade.

    Still on a i5-3570K with ASRock Z77 Extreme4 and GTX660Ti

    Still happy with it, would need an upgrade if a new Battlefield came out (I didn't play BF1)
