I know how you feel dude. I find the process of window shopping on NewEgg, then selecting and asembling a computer is more fun then when you actually finish it. It is kinda anti-climatic. At least that is how I feel..........then I often second guess my selection..........
The industry moves so fast it is hard to keep up........so I don't try. I stick to a conservative budget when upgrading. I'm not cheap im practical. Im not too big on benchmarks, but I have a decent system.
What helps me hold off the upgrade blues is I have a certain time of year I allow my self to upgrade. That is my birthday and Xmas. In between I read the reviews, window shop online, read magazine articles about computer builds etc. It satisfies me enough so I can resist.
Every once in a while I will pick up something here or there except the wife always questions me about it when she reviews the bank account.
I keep her happy but making sure her computer is in good working order. :wink: She can't complain I don't drink or smoke or chase women.... 8O
Sigh..................the upgrade blues is what they call it.
