How can you all afford these things
I can't even afford to get my...blown up memory cell thing fixed.
(Yup. STO destroyed half of the RAM in my laptop, which was bad to begin with. I also can't play Minecraft at all now without overheating.)
How did STO destroy your RAM? How do you know it was STO?
Speaking personally, my system is a hodgepodge of components I've bought and upgraded over time. It started life as a Dell XPS 8300. I upgraded the PSU and graphics card a few years ago. A little later I got an SSD. Then, I transitioned to a fully custom build by getting a new case, RAM, and motherboard. The most recent upgrade was improving the GPU again, and modding the case so the new GPU fits.
I try to keep in mind the end-of-life for all my components. The way I'm going I'll be due for a total overhaul (new mobo, new processor, new GPU, maybe more RAM) in about 3-4 years. Before that I will probably upgrade the HDD/SSD.
