Shitty post time, just wondering what's on everyone's wish list.

I'd probably get a 24" IPS 1440p monitor to use as my portrait monitor. The one I have is an older LCD from 2009 and the viewing angles are terrible. If I'm not sitting directly at my desk, you can't see it at all. :/

Or a 27" IPS 1440p monitor to replace my second landscape monitor to match my main monitor.

I just want a nicer monitor. I have one good one and two subpar (TN, 24" 1080p) ones.

I'd get a 144hz 1440p IPS monitor but dayum they're expensive.

Hell yeah they are. The one I got was $700. :/

But man, I do not regret it at all. I fucking love it.

I'd jump into some fantastic ssd storage. The performance is incredible on almost any machine.

So true, I even bought some super small SSDs (128 GBs for $40 (https://amzn.com/B01F9G414U)) for my parents laptops and on my little home server (made from an old mini Dell desktop I got for free). Works great. Probably the best bang-for-your-buck upgrade that you'll notice all the time if you still run off platters (HDDs).

I was kinda bummed that the shell was made out of plastic, since I'm used to Samsung SSDs which have a metal enclosure. But the price is right.

I would get a new processor or a new motherboard+processor. Oh and a cooler box.

I have recently got a 500 euro monitor. That is covered.

Oh, of course. The best thing to put in your PC is your car speakers.

You failed us nancy! Back to your corner to think about what you did wrong.
