1. What is the reason to upgrade hardware these days? Oct 31, 2012, 23:56 2nd_floor
Does anybody else feel that given the small number of PC games that today really push hardware, and drive AMD/ati and nvidia to make better and more powerful hardware, that there is very little reason to upgrade our computers?

I could name maybe 5 games current and upcoming that really push the limits. I have 580s and I feel laughably no reason to need to even think about an upgrade for 2+ years. Never in 15 years of PC gaming have I felt this way, haha.

Yet AMD is soon set to annouce its next line up of cards to compete with nvidia's 680 cards. Where is the demand? 1/5 games on the PC need and can use top of the line hardware!!
