Out of the Blue

Back in the day, hardware upgrades for a PC gaming enthusiast were constant: the state of the art evolved too fast to sit still. Nowadays this has calmed down significantly, while new technology continues to improve, but the need to upgrade so rapidly is gone. This is to the point where I was almost surprised by the recent realization that my machine was behind the curve, even though it's been years without any sort of real performance boost. I may do a full upgrade with a new CPU/mobo at some point to follow, but in the meantime I'm very happy with a simple video card upgrade, as I picked up a GTX 760, and this bang-for-the-buck card performs like a champ. Using it to replace the GTX 260 in my aging E8500-based PC has pushed it back to being an above-average gaming system, and eventually putting this card into a rig with a new CPU and an SSD should be pretty awesome.
