    I got a LianLi case....made for the hot Athlons....really good design....what now??
    I got a Swiftech 462A...as good as you can get ....what now??
    I got 512Mb RAM ...what now??
    I got an Athlon XP 2000+....no real performance benefit in apps I run to upgrade...what now??
    I got a DVD player and a CD burner...what now??
    I got a 15" tft display..don't need anything better...what now??
    I got a HDD I can't fill in a lifetime of porn downloads..what now??
    I got Linux...MDK9...don't need any better...what Now??
    I have converted all office stuff to Open Office...better than MS Office...what now??

    I am no real tech junkie or technophile. How in the hell can the tech industry hope to sell newer, bigger, better, faster stuff when what we already have is way past what we NEED....what now???

    Damn and here's my youngest son jumpin' on my PC now when I'm in the garage and when asked what's wrong with the PC in his room he says, "It's just not as fast Dad". :laugh:

    more ram - max out the board

    bigger LCD monitor, 23" Mac with an adapter would be good


    that's for starters

    i got more ideas lurking around......

    Nah...I'm pretty happy with the setup but its awefully quiet on the "must get" front.....the LCD monitor is the next thing but its not a "must get" at this stage.

    When you have a look around at the "second" line stuff, I mean like Athlon XP 1800+ for about $AU130, 256Mb ra for $AU120, good video cards for less than $AU300 etc etc its easy for most people to get a really good performing system together at a reasonable price.....I really wonder how the likes of Intel and AMD are gunna get us to upgrade when what is around now is perfectly adequate for almost anything out there??

    I certainly can't see any benefit in upgrading any of the components at the moment......there's no reason too....yet

    Ever since the advent of gz chips, I've felt it would be a good idea for chip manufacturers to assist developers trying to develop the next "killer app". Money, equipment, tech resources and such through a partnership or other affiliation. Apps that are of course horsepower intensive. This might be Virtual Reality, 99.5% accurate voice recognition, super-duper video compression/decompression, etc.. This would present a compelling reason to upgrade to the fastest system. It just seems to me that it is in the best interests of these companies to see such developments come to pass in a timely fashion.

    HEY !
    Joking...:laugh:
    I know what you mean, but I like the latest games...so I had to upgrade from my P3 600mhz, but I bought reasonablely priced parts, and I'm going to wait for the GeForceFX and an Athlon 3000+ (333 or 400 mhz FSB) until they are released. Then I'll make me move. (bigger jump in perforance)
