Memory Kits

— I'm running 4x4 GB Mushkin EnhancedBlackline DDR 1600 memory (996995) with 9-9-9-24 timings. I've had no issue in the 5 1/2 years I've been running this memory.

512GB Solid State Drives

— Besides gaming and a GPU upgrade, this is the biggest upgrade you can make for your computer. It'll feel faster and more responsive in every way except framerate. I enjoy the 500GB size as it is large enough to use as a boot drive and to store almost all of my games and applications without having to worry about space constantly.

Nvidia
GTX 1070 - Excellent 3 years ago.
Graphics Cards

— Great card, capable of running AAA titles at 1080p+ on ultra and less demanding games at 4k. In particular I have the Asus ROG STRIX GTX 1070. The aura lights look great with a window and the 3 fans keep it running cool and quiet.

Intel
Core i5-2550K - Excellent 3 years ago.
Processors

— I have been running an i5-2550k since 2012. With modest overclocking it is only 20% slower in single core processing than the 8th Gen i5's, giving me no reason, even 5 years later, to upgrade.

The Best.
