So a slightly random thread spawned from a uncharastic moment of introspection. I keep finding myself looking at various tech sites for the latest news on processors, RAM, GPUs etc. when I have no need or intention of upgrading my current rig which if i'm honest is massively overpowered for what it's currently used for (running a plex server streaming content at native resolution to a maximum of 3 devices over the home wifi and gaming). When I initially specced the build I was considering returning to my engineering studies and hence built the machine accordingly (left my old 780ti GPU in it initially until we had decided that we were going to farm full time, and the RTX series was available hence no Quadro card). Therefore I have a system that does not and will not need upgrading for years yet still am drawn to articles on components that are largely either inferior or a sideways move from my current system and I find myself browsing the Scan website amongst others pricing up components I really don't need. I'm now wondering how many other people on here have similar habits and what peoples thoughts are on what I, when I really think about it consider a waste of my time?
