Question

What do you guys think about this gaming pc? + Question

Howdy folks.

Specs:

Intel Core i5-4690 3,5GHz
Cooler Master Hyper412S CPU Cooler
Gigabyte GA-H97-D3H 102 euro
EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 970 Superclocked ACX 2.0
GSkill Ripjaws X 1600MHz 8GB (1x8GB) CL9
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
Samsung SH-224DB
Zalman R1 USB3 Nero
EVGA 750B 80+ Plus Bronze 750W

I have two questions:
1 How much time will this pc survive? (i honestly think that it will survive 4-5 years, because i usually play 4-5 hours per day)
2 Will it get slower after 2-3 months? (this happened to me with many different laptops)

Thank you <3

I have a 2009 PC.

It's the same speed as the day I bought it. If it does seem to slow down it's not because of the hardware but I may be running more things. Speed remains constant over 6 years now.

As to the GPU, my bet is you'll get the usual year or two then update that card.

ayy lmao

why should i update that gfx?

Not why, when.

If I had a GPU from years ago, I can keep my machine current by changing that card. It's not so much why but when.

Two suggestions

Change that ram to 2X4GB.
Think 'dual channel'....goggle that.

Change that psu from a quad rail unit to a single rail unit.
I'm talking about the +12v rails.
