Yep - ADDICTION - seriously probably going to be the last build I'll ever do so i thought I would treat myself to something with a bit of grunt, finesse, try and settle down to some graphical and gaming stuff.

So does that mean I can't stick a decent GPU in it? I was planning to get something to match up with a good board - I mean nothing real fancy say a low - mid price range one say ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II 2GB OC [ENGTX660TI-DC2O-2GD5] - $339.00 : PC Case Gear

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3GB OC [GV-N66TOC-3GD] - $369.00 : PC Case Gear

you blokes are more adept at this stuff than me I know that the RAM stuff is important and go by looking at the resolution figures

Yeah well I am looking at say around July as thats is when I hope to be fully retired but I'll have to do some reading on DDR4 as I really know nothing much at all about it in respect to how much difference there will be from DDR3.

Also, when the new RAM and storage hardware is rolled out, there will be a new generation of video cards.......just something to think about.

Well, besides the CPU releases every so often, there have been no major new hardware releases in quite a while. SATA III has been out for awhile, and SSD's are bumping up against that cap. DDR4 will probably be coming out end of this year or early next year. SATA Express will probably be out around the same time. By that time, new AMD and Nvidia graphics cards will be out and probably worth looking at. But in the end it is your project and you will decide if you CAN wait or not lol.....I know how the upgrade bug bite itches. Just something to think about before you plunk down a bunch of money

Yep KB I don't think I'll be waiting till the end of the year mate they are flying by as it is. My current set up is good but it is like you say the bug bites and it is SO addictive I just love the putting of it together and modding and hardware changes etc

Heck I even like doing fresh installs there is just something about it all that pulls me in like a black hole. I am just he same with flying from the minute I walk into the building the check in and all that stuff just mesmerising. Am to the UK next week and it is just ridiculous - my ex is just the same loves every bit about it.

Jeez when I think back to when I was kid well like yesterday really LOL!! how did we entertain ourselves??

HP Chooses USB 3.0 Over Thunderbolt
Details... I think Intel has an uphill battle with this. No devices on the market support their technology and few, if any, in the foreseeable future. USB has been a go-to interface between devices. It's like Windows on PCs.
