Look how old my Samsung HD321KJ 320gb compares. The 4tb HGST hodls up well, but nothing beats the SSD.

I upgraded my GPU recently to the Gigabyte G1 970, i will get a 2nd card once it drops in price in the future for SLI. I have OC'd it to the power of a 980 using EVGA's Precison tool, fantastic bit of software.

Got a new Keyboard - The Corsair RGB K95 - Brown. Fantastic bit of kit, full of glowy goodness and i also obtained a Logitech G502, much better improvement over my old mouse that literally only worked on a old rubber mousepad i had, would not work on any other surface.

Speaking of surfaces, got a Starcraft 2 QCK steel series mousepad, works far better than the Razer Goliath extended pad i have.

Now for the huge update, that is, my 3 monitor setup, i sold my older monitor thats shown in the original pictures on the left. It was a 24" TN panel, was a pretty good monitor but age was setting in, had a big back too. I moved to getting a 23" AOC IPS for the left and  the 29" 21:9 ips monitor has moved to the right with a huge 34" 21:9 ips in the middle. Hitting 3440 x 1440 resolution is pretty sexy indeed. The stand is shitty with it though, i will eventually mount it, but the price has fallen rapidly in the last few weeks, so will be sending this one back and getting a replacement hopefully with less light bleed.
