Default Post your PC history timeline...

2004: The first computer my dad built for me for starting high school including. New Build
  • AMD Athlon 64
  • Nvidia 6600 GT
  • 1024x768 17" crt monitor, some memory, atx motherboard, one of those beige cases, and matching keyboard, mouse and speaker set.
2006: Upgraded the processor. Upgrade
  • AMD Athlon 64 X2
2007: Upgraded the monitor to an LCD flatscreen.
  • 19" 1440x900 LCD (DAEWOO I think?)
2008: Upgraded the graphics card Upgrade
  • Nvidia 8800 GT
2010: Built a new system: New Build
  • AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black
  • MSI 785GM-E51
  • Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 CPU Cooler
  • 4 x Corsair 2GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory
  • Nvidia GTX 460
  • NZXT Alpha (despite looking modern at the time, it wasn't a great case)
  • 500W PSU (non modular)
  • Samsung XL2370 23" 1920x1080
2011: Wanted to downsize, so I opted for a micro-atx case.
  • Silverstone SG02B Micro-ATX
2013: Won an Nvidia gaming PC. New Build
  • Intel i5 3470
  • Nvidia GTX 660 Ti SLI
  • Arctic Cooling Cooler
  • 2 x 4 Corsair Vengeance @ 1666 Mhz
  • Silverstone Fortress SilverStone SST-FT02B (with my design etched onto it)
  • Asus p8Z77V-Pro
  • 1050W PSU (modular)
  • Windows 8
2014: Bought a laptop for university
  • Dell Inspiron 7000 15" (This broke during my final year of uni)
2017: Decided to downgrade generations to an i7 sandy bridge, broke my motherboard in the process. My biggest regret was doing this. The i7 was reasonably cheap second hand (so was the motherboard).
  • Intel i7 2700k
  • Intel p8Z68V-Pro
  • 2 x 8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3

There you have it. I'm looking to build a new system possibly at the end of the year. My proposed specs:
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
  • AMD Big Navi (when it arrives)
  • NZXT White H1 Mini-ITX
  • 2x 1TB Corsair M.2 3480MB/s Read,3000MB/s Write
  • 64GB (2x32GB) Corsair DDR4 Vengeance (Overkill, may go for 16 or 32)
  • 27" 1440p monitor @ 144 Hz
  • Some snazzy keyboard, mouse and speakers.

I'm either going to go for an all AMD build... or an Intel/ Nvidia build. For some reason, I can't mix AMD with Nvidia or Intel. (Perhaps an AMD CPU and an Nvidia graphics card as I've done in the past)
