And then, there's AE-ASCENCI, my desktop.
I'm almost ready to build a new, NEW machine. Using DDR4 RAM, getting on Ryzen, and so on. I don't entirely enjoy the prospect of possibly spending $1,200-ish on a completely new machine, but I've been carrying forward parts for a while, and kind of feel like I deserve to have something entirely new and not farmed from the cheapest bins of the interbutts for ONCE.
I know my mindset, though. I'll be picking out the least expensive components and trying to squeeze $1,200 worth of computer into $700 worth of parts.
I'll remind myself that gee, I'm only going to play Cities: Skylines and browser games on it, so I don't need that shiny eight-core CPU when the four-core will do.
And hell, maybe I'll even get around to getting three monitors that bloody MATCH each other instead of a decade old hodge-podge of computer monitors and televisions doubling as monitors.
