The last piece of the puzzle is finally here. To round up my PC upgrade is the graphics card. If youâ€™ve read my previous update, the only major changes Iâ€™ve made are to the CPU and motherboard. I did get new peripherals and slapped on a SSD as well as an additional sound card. The reason I gave for not upgrading the GPU is due to the fact that I wasnâ€™t playing any games that required a more powerful card. Besides, most games these days donâ€™t even need that much power anyways.
Having upgraded to a SSD only recently, this is one of those virgin SSD user experience kind of post. There are plenty of people out there telling you why a SSD would probably be the best upgrade you can ever do to your computer now. I upgraded after I decided to check out North Lakes pc repairs home page and read the SSD review. So now Iâ€™m here to tell you some of my personal experience and thoughts on that and whether or not it is exactly the â€œbestâ€ upgrade if you do not have one already.
I have finally gotten the parts to do some major revamp on my computer rig. It has been a long time coming and 2014 marks the year for a semi-major upgrade for my rig. For those familiar with the custom PC building scene, a PC usually doesnâ€™t remain the same throughout the years as compared to say a game console (PS4, Xbox One etc). A PC can constantly be upgraded and modified to keep up to date to the latest tech and performance. I have been doing some upgrades here and there during the past few years, mainly changing my graphics card. Iâ€™m glad that the second-hand tech market in Singapore is rather busy, allowing one to buy and sell parts pretty easily. Thatâ€™s how I get the money to do the upgrades. Sell the old, buy the â€œnewâ€.
