Windows 8 Pro x64

If I was rich, I'd do things like:

Radeon HD 6990 quad crossfire in a workstation with two hexacore Intel Xeons, and 32 GB of RAM, + 1 TB of SSD space. I don't want to even know how much that would cost, lol.

as soon as you are rich enough to buy one there will always be something coming out that is bigger and faster. you will always be chasing the carrot.

just be thankful that yours is working and you are in good health.

PC upgrading is like a Sea no matter how much you throw in it.. it'll not fill i can understand your pain of being not able to upgrade as many of us go through same problem.. but what i noticed people who continuously upgrade there PC's (especially gamers) for better tech are sometimes more upset than us sometimes hehe we have term in our language "Keerra" which means an Ant that crawls inside your body who disturbs you all day and night and wont stop untill you upgrade your PC.

I don't advise that anybody try to keep up....and I don't advise buying top of the line either.

My recommendations are to buy a generation or two back....and get something reasonably affordable. Then use it for 2-3 years, then replace it. The money you save on not buying the top end hardware will end up paying for the new computer.

I bought my current box in July of 2009, it's a Q9550 quad core (at the time, the original Core i7 was top dog). Now, over 2 years later, it's still quite a powerful machine. The only thing I have changed is my video card. When I bought the box in 2009, I bought an oldish nvidia 9800GTX+ which i always intended to replace. But I didn't actually have a need for the past 2 years. With BF3 coming out, I just bought an Nvidia GTX 570. I was able to play the Beta on high settings no problem. My CPU didn't break a sweat. I don't see any reason to believe this machine won't continue to be fast for at least 1 more year.

Sure, there are faster machines out there, but I don't really do anything which requires more speed. I can already encode video fast, I can rip DVD's in just under 8 minutes, I can run virtual machines, I can play the latest games, it just works for me. Of course, as a gamer, I play on a single monitor with I'm not the be-all end-all poster child either. Your needs and expectations will differ from mine. Staying on a machine might not work for everybody...but it can probably work for many.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2

I'm not rich, but every penny I get goes on my new rig until I'm happy with it, and then its fine for about 6months lol.

Still saving for an NZXT phantom, NZXT 1000w white psu and corsair H100 cooler, going with the idea I might as well buy it all at once lol
