Only thing I would upgrade is a monitor... i.e. a 70" backlit LED LCD (wait do they make 70" LEDs yet? :roll: )

.


Yes, they make 70" LED's now, my local walmart even has one for $2200. Best Buy and Sam's Club have had the Sharp Aquos 70" LED 1080p for quite some time now. :toast:

I can't even comprehend it...lol.. Holographic displays that take up and entire room.
Or 4 walls, floor and ceiling as monitors with a multi cpu, multi gpu system, that my brain can hardly even visualize..
Let's not forget an awesome surround sound system..
Oh and lots of pretty "low luminosity" lights..

If I actually won the lottery the first thing I'd do would probably be to pay all debt my family have (which are pretty modest actually). Then I'd send everyone off to a holiday of their choice. And I'd buy a good car (Subaru Legacy probably) and I'd upgrade my wardrobe.

After that I'd think about computers.

I'd take my current rig:

3960X @ 4.6 GHz
32 GB(3x 8GB) 2133 MHz DDR3


and I'd swap out the triple 6950's for 2x GTX690, and get 4x 512 GB Crucial M4 drives, or perhaps Corsair P256 SSDs.


Then I'd add watercooling, and a few more IPS monitors.


:roll:

Heck ,what I got now is overkill. :p

If i won the lottery - my PC would be second priority very low on the priority list,

#1 Leave basement

#2 hit the bar or find chicks to party with before hitting said bar and getting totally wasted

#3 get laid

#4 wake up - get laid some more

#5 profit

#6 move to safer area more fitting for rich folk

#7 renovate/refurb my new mansion - have a dedicated climate controlled computer room.

#8 hire a hot sexy maid to have sexytime with

#10 wake up and decide to go with 2x GTX690s and a dual SB-E mobo.

#11 cry like a boss when I find hot sexy maid has stolen all my money & run off...


=======

On a more serious note, I predict this thread will be moved to GN....

I wouldn't own a PC, laptop only if I won the lottery. Since I obviously would be traveling the world constantly.
Right...on my yacht...with plenty of room for a top-end desktop and much more! :)

I would get two 680's and some more RAM. Also two M4 256gb and a better PSU for the extra strain. A ISP monitor and a nice keyboard too. Maybe the new Wacom. But honestly one 670 and some more RAM is all I would really want I guess. I'm a simple man.
