    Im just intersted , is it better to uprgade your old PC or get the new one , for me , its better to upgrade the old one , because you can only upgrade the things that you want to , not the whole setup or your computer , but if its really necessary the new PC is compatible too . I want to hear your thougts about this thread :D

    My thoughts: If the PC is more than 3 yrs old, then buy a new one. If not, upgrade it :)

    All depend of CPU and motherboard, if u have strong CPU and all what u need is Graphic Card or RAM, then u can upgrade it, but if CPU is low then new one is better.
    It is rly expensive to change CPU, because u need to find one that is compatible with Mboard, and if Mboard is not strong enough u need to change it too.

    Depends on what you need. Upgrading RAM and/or HDD obviously would be worth it vs buying a whole new one. If you have a good CPU or a good GPU then upgrading the other isn't a bad idea either. If everything is really dated then you'll probably be better off just upgrading everything at once aka new computer. This all applies to just Desktop as well, minus RAM, HDD. If you have a laptop it'll almost never be worth it to try an upgrade it yourself.

    Upgrading in bits can work, it helps keep the immediate cost down but I still think it'd be better to just save up and do it all at once.

    Also wanna say upgrading vs buying pre-built. You should only upgrade/build yourself if you have the knowledge to do so. Don't chance it if you don't think you can do it. Don't undervalue the cost of a good warranty and technical support as well. Most pre-builts come with this at no extra cost. Most parts include some kind of warranty too (although repair might not be as easy to get) but technical support will be vastly limited as you are dealing with only one part of the system instead of the whole picture, plus they'll probably tend to try to blame something else.

    I think you need new because if you want to stream,you can buy a new pc,and u can add components from old PC,so your pc will be stronger,that's i think.

    You can upgrade them two or three times, but after that, it's better to buy a new one :D

    I think that it all depends on the specs and you may have some components that are good and they don't have to be swapped and you may have those who are old and are better if replaced.Althrough it all depends on your pc
