    since crimbo i've bought, G500 mouse, Creative Arena Headset, the computer in my sig, and i want a new Dell Ultrasharp Monitor, G19 Keyboard ( one for home, one for work ) more HDD space, server upgrades ( bigger hdds and lower power consumption ) new case for main pc, new powersupply as i've overclocked and it's getting unstable, new GFX card ( 4830 is a bit pants tbh ) if im going to be honest i want to move house to get fire broadband too... guess upgradeitis is just life, its our nature to want things we can't have, hence upgrade upgrade upgrades.....

    I'm thinking you meant the 6Gb of game on the HDD, and 30Mb of Steam on the SSD?

    it's a serious problem, to which I suffer from.

    Such a problem that now I have 3 machines in my office, just because I found the ability to use all 3 in a cloud to render one image.

    This is handy for my degree course, and when I put them together I just thought of pull it apart at the end of uni, but no my brain has other idea's. Turns out each machine not only can render, but has its own useful role such as HTPC, workstation and media server/gaming box.

    After uni when im earning again i had plans to sell up most of it and upgrade to an i3/5 HTPC box and i7's for the other two. But that was 2 months ago, before the need of total silence hit me.

    Now everything is getting a rebuild in terms of cooling, my workstation is about 20 dbA I reckon with only 4 moving parts, two being HDD's which W7 shuts down as and when not needed.

    Gaming machine is going into its new home, link in sig. new parts arrive tomorrow so update time looming...

    I think after uni, limiting ones computer spending to something like £500 a year or less would be ideal, unless of course repairs are required which RMA would not cover.
