    Last thing I bought was a 32GB USB stick. Thing before that was a new family laptop about a year ago (Lenovo Y70).

    I haven't touched my desktop for almost a year and a half. Haven't even installed the GeForce 750 Ti which I bought around that time. I have that and a 256GB SSD still waiting to be installed. (But I did install the blu-ray drive I bought in that order in my HTPC, so at least that's in use.)

    A GTX 1070 was my latest desktop upgrade. These things look really good and perform as expected. I'd highly recommend.

    My exact model: http://amzn.to/2qtBYAb

    Seems I'm always upgrading something.most recently .I had a stick of gskill sniper die so rather than refurb or replace the stick of 1600 mhz.I ordered a kit of corsair dominator platinum 2400 mhz 2x8 gig sticks for my 3570k rig .and it's a new toy.

    I will probably .replace the stick of sniper.but it's a u.s. Rma .so with customs duties .experienced with crucial already.I will just buy a matching stick to complete the kit.then maybe shelve it or give it to some needy local.

    Steve has shelved lots of kit.BTW! I do still have some shelve space available.I mean .if you needs to. Free up some space.lots of poor needy in my neck of the woods.still using athlon 64and socket 478 p4's. here that the phone company was giving away to get everyone hooked to their dsl connection..:(. Many needing a PC upgrade but just can't afford it.so some one will probably get another one of my aging systems very soon.
