The huge amount of component choice in the PC ecosystem means that changing hardware is straightforward and easy.

Sometimes that change is enforced upon us when a long-serving component dies, sometimes we just want something faster or better because, well, we can. We all suffer from upgradeitis to some degree, right?

It would be fun to know which was the last PC-related component or peripheral that you changed, and why you did it?

For me it was upgrading from a 240GB external SSD to a 500GB model, enabling me to keep the entire library of Steam games and numerous films on one drive.

How about you? Did you replace something that died, or did you splurge out because you simply wanted a better graphics card or CPU? We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments facility below.

fans, got the new noctua a-series!
As it happens, I just (like, in the last 2 hours) got 2 new Dell 2412Ms to replace a pair of 2408s that were on the way out.
My SSD because the last one gave out in 18 months.
graphics card - jumped in and got a bargain of a GTX 1060 6GB to replace my older GTX 770 setup.

I'm glad I did as pricing skyrocketed due to mining demand about 2 weeks after I purchased the card.

Massive gains in FPS, massive drop in power usage and also noise levels.

It was by choice - I needed to upgrade and glad I did now :)
Ryzen build. Three weeks in so far.
