Amd fx8320
8gb ram
radeon 7950 3 gb
cooler master extreme power plus power supply

To be honest wish I had gone intel but Am still happy none the less.

next upgrade- power supply.... was a big noob when i built and havent heard too many good things about my current product ( also might get a new case if anyone can suggest something with excellent airflow and will keep everything as cool as possible for a decent price that would be nice lol )

I'm going to get another harddrive, a solic state, or grab a new gpu.
Only have 500gb to work with and my 560ti is showing its age.

With my tax return, I built with the intent of being good to run high/max specs for a long time without having to OC or SLI.

Z77A-GD65 Motherboard
EVGA 780ti
i7 3770k
16GB Ram
750W PSU
1TB HDD (This is what I'm going to upgrade next, after Thief pre-loads, I think I'll only have 50GB left)

I may also look to get and SSD in the near future, but I just need more general space first.

My power supply first, then in a few years my gpu. Maybe a couple of case fans since I have the space.

Asrock mobo, Z77 pro 4 M I think
Single 8gb stick of ram.

The biggest thing is I wish I'd just gone with a 670FTW, not the +. I paid an extra $70-80 for no real performance gain, though I may have picked up the backplate separately anyway since I really like the way it looks over a bare pcb.

I really love the way my case looks, unfortunately it's not nearly as small as I'd hoped. It honestly couldn't be any smaller though without being completely redesigned as an mITX case so it's just a matter of going mITX next time and not mATX. It's big enough that it hasn't fit in the places I've really wanted to put it, yet small enough that I was extremely limited in cooler selection. The card I wanted fit fine but I had to pass up on an epic deal on a 780 because it wouldn't fit.

As for the ram, dual channel doesn't make a noticeable improvement but I could have saved $5 and gotten a teensy bit of performance with a dual channel kit.

i7 920
ASUS P6T Deluxe MB
500 gb hdd
12gb ram 1333
Radeon 6950 1VGB
Windows 7 64bit

I regret nothing but at this point, i'd love to upgrade everything. I built this sucker back in 2009 and it could run anything at max settings without a hitch. It still can but stuff like Skyrim with mods and other, newer games will max the 1vgb of the GPU, the ram could be faster and the first gen i7 has been rock steady but is ready for an upgrade. I've tried overclocking it in the past but it never liked it and thus its at stock still. I dont like Windows 8, but it's going to be needed to take advantage of all its perks with new games. My HDD is to small and is starting to BSOD every now and then so it needs to be the first thing to go. I have a external 1TB HDD I keep movies and stuff stored on.

Sig. Don't really regret anything; it runs everything at a level I'm happy with. May or may not upgrade the CPU at some point this summer, likely getting a Xeon E3-1230 V2 if I do.

H61 motherboard
GTX 460 1GB
2 x 4GB RAM
550w PSU (it's decent)
DVD RW drive

I built it in Sep. 2011. I originally planned to buy a Pentium G620, 4GB RAM, a lesser PSU, and an HD 6670 GPU. I'm glad I spent the extra cash. Motherboard, CPU, RAM, PSU, case, and optical drive are all fine. I was concerned shortly after I'd built it whether I should maybe have opted for 2 x 8GB DIMMs (motherboard only has two RAM slots), but it looks as if that isn't going to matter.

I don't need any additional storage space, but I do worry about the HDD failing at some point, and am considering buying another one sometime this year.

The 460 has proved to be a good choice, but is inevitably weak by today's standards. Also, my old 1280 x 1024 monitor conked out this year, and I replaced it with a 1080p one. I mostly just play Warband, though, so it'll do for now. I want to see how the other nVidia Maxwell GPUs shape up, anyway.

7850 2GB
600w PSU

I dont really regret anything, aside from not putting more money aside for a bigger HDD/SSD. I need a better GPU, but I've had it since my old build so I dont really regret it, as I've gotten lots of usage out of it(and it smoked my previous GPU, which was a 5670 IIRC). Gonna wait and see what nVidia brings out with Maxwell before I go out and upgrade my GPU though(and it still maxes out most of my games games at 1600x900, so i'm not in a huge rush to upgrade).
