Wow. Haven't logged into OCAU in years after taking a break from benching/pc gaming! Any oldschoolers around will remember me (if their memory can go back to my last post date of probably 2012) So I am back and unfortunately won't be contending for the GPU benching titles anymore in camp AMD but I will be gaming! Looks like things have progressed a little in 4 years hardware wise! So here is my predicament, i still have my old rig that back then i sunk some 6+ grand into when i built it. Specs are as follows: Corsair 800D case Asus Rampage Extreme 4 mobo Xeon w3530 @ 4.6 daily (under water) Corsair dominator gt 2166 3x2GB Phoenix pro 120gb ssd (had 2 in raid however one has died) 1tb westgate data drive (nearly maxed) AMD 7950 gpu (i miss my stupid quadfire 6970 setup ) Corsair 1200w psu All my watercooling gear. Triple ek rad with 6 scythe typhoons, dual ek rad with 4x scythe typhoons, ek res, ek block etc Now. Ive definitely gotten my moneys worth over the years as this thing is still 4.6ghz daily and never skips a beat. My only issue ive faced is legacy ROG audio drivers and poor integration with my home theatre system (however i also want to build a media pc as now that i want to game again i will be purchasing some monitors and will cease using this rig connected to my 65" samsung tv) So question is... what do i do? I know at a minimum i will be getting the new latest AMD GPU... however bearing in mind i want to essentially have 1x gaming rig and 1x media pc now but have this old high end rig here... do i reuse some of its components? Do i just sell it all complete? Is it even worth anything complete or in parts? Is it at the end of its lifecycle for gaming? Im really out of the loop and confused. Budget is also not an issue. I like buying shiny new things. In saying that ive grown older and wiser and am saving fot an engagement ring and house deposit at the same time so i probably wont be going and dropping another 6+k on these builds. Throw me some loose ideas guys and we can bounce back and forth! An idea i kinda had was: Gaming pc: Reuse cpu and mobo/water cooling as im sure they are fine in a gaming environment? Reuse case and psu Just update gpu and hard drives Media pc: Build from scratch and maybe use the 7950 gpu in that? But then another part of me is like... i want one of these new K processors and motherboards look even sexier these days!
