I just finished building my computer a month ago and im already thinking about upgrading. Do you have the same problem?
Answer by NickSaldeba · Jul 05, 2010 at 10:30 AM
I upgrade the physical components of my computer about 4 times a year if that, while I upgrade the software when ever an update comes out unless the price is ridiculously high.
To answer your question. No, I am not addicted to upgrading my computer or any other electronics as I believe the phrase "if it is not broken then don't fix it".

I upgrade software more often than hardware because of updates but i am always looking into what the worst part of my system is and then buying something better. But i need now just to get a new computer my current one is three years old and the bottleneck is a Pentium D processor at 2.8GHz.

I fear this will be my case when I come to learn a whole lot more about hardware than I do now, and me getting summer job for ever next summer, that will probably happen to me, or I'll spend it on games xD

I'm a patient sort and I do a lot of research and planning before making any major purchase. When I do finally pull the trigger and buy, I am generally quite happy with my choice for a good while. How long that "while" is depends on the type of technology and how much I spent on the upgrade/newest tech I have in the first place. For instance, I haven't owned every version of the iPhone or Amazon Kindle, but I am a fan of both devices and have played my cards such that I've had exactly the versions I have wanted... no more, no less.

Yes and no. Its not so much as I love upgrading to have the fastest, most efficient system possible, its more an addiction to bleeding edge technology. Most of you will probably think those are one in the same but to me there totally different.
