    As computer enthusiast there is something we always want to buy for our systems that already cost us a pretty penny. However, deep down we feel like in some way what we currently have just isn't enough, so we want to spend money that we really don't need to spend on some we also don't really "NEED." What are some computer parts of peripherals you want for your computer?

    This thread is for discussing these wants that have been pondering our mind.

    Ill start.........

    I want more water cooling stuff to add my 2500k to a loop, another GTX680, and a Dell U2713HM 27" IPS 1440P monitor, and another Corsair Neutron 240GB in RAID0 to expand my game library storage without blowing $300+ on a single 480Gb+ SSD

    :rockout: :toast:

    Hey Mx. you really like to dream, don't you? I remember that Dream Build topic of yours. =P

    I need a BenQ XL2420T as my rig is almost finished, and adding another Vertex 4 in the mix would be nice. I'm satisfied with the idea of getting a H100i already, i'm not a custom loop guy yet.

    No doubt. I'd buy 2 Titans to replace my GTX670 SLI, and then buy a 3930K to avoid any bottleneck. But my parents disagree. :ohwell:

    I created a topic about air cooling to get a nice discussion, too. Not much success. :ohwell: But there's always something to talk about.

    you know ive been wanting a G27 wheel as well for the longest time. Ever since launch, I just do not have the right setup for one. So I may just stick to a controller, once I get one that is.

    I want an actual 5.25 inch toaster like this, but real. I can only dream of a bagel while playing BF3.

    K95 (I know it's still not available), M65, U2713HM, and an H80i. That's about it. Oh and maybe another 256gb Vertex 4 for RAID. :)

    I'd switch out to two 7970's, get two 512gb SSD's in raid so i can actually fit at least half of my steam games onto a single ssd drive, the other half will just have to stay on mechanical :D The new roccat mechanical keyboard, not even out yet, and a set of accelero hybrids for the two video cards. Aside from that stuff, I'm quite liking my rig.

    Assuming your HDTV is 1080p or 720p you wouldn't need 2 7970s haha.

    You would want something like that, lol


    I want a damned 8c/16t IVB-E, 64GB of 2400+ RAM, and three 1440p IPS monitors.
    Alas, IVB-E has not been released yet and it doesn't look like they'll release an 8c/16t chip, I probably couldn't use up 32GB of RAM if I tried much less 64GB, and I don't have $1200+ to blow on monitors nor the room for them.
    A man can dream :eek:

    Probably will eventually get:
    -New keyboard, probably cherry brown, probably Logitech 710
    -New camera
    -A msata ssd for my laptop
    -1440p monitor

    Toys that I would love but highly doubt if I will be getting:
    -titan gpu with full cover block, maybe two. If two, would need more radiator space.
    -1600p monitor with 1600x900 monitor on each side for a total of 4360x1600 resolution.
    -I kinda want to get haswell and a matx board and do some interesting case mod with that. Thinking I will wait for something after haswell
    -dual ~500gb ssd's in raid 0
    -A quad cpu board with four 16 core amd cpu's for crunching... That and all the psu memory etc to run it.
    -Get google to bring its gigabit internet to my town
    -World peace?

    Yes. I want it RIGHT NOW!
