Thought I'd follow up from my previous post to note that some of my computer upgrades are coming... so I might as well list off the upgrade path.

Phase 1 of the upgrade's this weekend at latest, and here are the parts involved:
Tower Upgrade: So, I admit I never discussed my tower before, but it's a midsize one. The new computer case will be a Corsair Obsidian Series 750D Airflow and it's a fullsize one.
Motherboard Upgrade: Finally, I'll have a motherboard my system can recognize - a GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Ultra Gaming board.
RAM Upgrade: New motherboard won't be able to handle my old DDR2 RAM - so I chose to go with the G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB). Specifically the DDR4-3600 variant.
Processor Upgrade: The i9s aren't worth the price point yet, but that Q6600 has to go. I'm going up as far as my budget allows - the Intel Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake 6-Core 3.7 GHz (4.7 GHz Turbo).
Disk Drive Upgrade: I'm one of the people that still has old enough games that call for at least a CD drive. And sure, my old DVD/RW probably works, but I've never had a Blu-Ray player. Going with an LG 14x WH14NS40 Internal Blu-ray Burner - though this part of Phase 1 is delayed about a week.
Hard Drive Upgrade: The 1TB HDD is being replaced with a WD Blue 3D NAND 500GB PC SSD. Not the best SSD, but I kind of got it on the cheap before I thought to benchmark everything.

As for phases 2 and 3... gonna post them in spoiler tags because they're not actually active at the time of this post.

Hard Drive Upgrade: I'm replacing the 3TB at this point with a WD Black 6TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive. I will admit I don't just do raw gaming, but also video recording, and a better drive for this will help a lot. (I'm tempted to get two drives so the gaming and recording doesn't happen on the same drive.)
Graphics Card Upgrade: The GTX770 was a good bargain card when I got it. No compromises this time, though - I'm going all-out with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Yes, the 11GB one if I can.
Power Supply Upgrade: While my 1000w power supply probably CAN handle things a while longer, I intend to go for a Rosewill PHOTON Series 1200W Full Modular Gaming Power Supply, 80 PLUS Gold Certified power supply. My planned set of upgrades might only push just above 750 watts, but a 1200w opens up overclocking as an option.
NEW PART: Cooling System: With all this hardware, I am seriously looking into liquid cooling. Current consideration is the Corsair Hydro Series H110i Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler.

Sound Card Upgrade: Since I have an SB Audigy card in there right now, I'm not in a rush for this part. When it does come time, I'm thinking of the Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 7.1 Channels 32-bit 384 KHz sound card.
RAM Upgrade: Having backup RAM might become important. Will pick up a second set of the TridentZ 16GB DDR4-3600 sticks mentioned in Phase 1.
Monitor Upgrade: So I have an Acer 22-inch monitor right now - possibly 23 inches if I measured wrong. Going to shoot for something like the Acer XG270HU Red 27" 1ms 144HZ WQHD 2K 2560x1440 when I get my next monitor.

There are also a couple thousand worth in peripherals that I can consider getting over the next couple years but I'm not saying much on that here, honestly. I'm up late enough as it is right now.

Posting this update schedule also gives me a chance to answer this:

Your better off with Xbox 1 or 360 controllers as most games don't support dualshock4

True, but I already had the controllers from a Playstation 2 to work with. I AM increasingly having to use things like JoyToKey to make controllers work with my games, so this is an increasingly attractive idea.

What worries me more are games that detect a controller and lock you into it - like Darksiders. But I don't want to open up that can of worms here - if I want to rant about games that hijack your controls, I'll post a topic about it.

Got a New (used) laptop a few months ago. Runs everything stunningly! It's an Alienware 17 R4, with a 1080 GTX graphics card, 32GB RAM, Tobii Eye Tracking, 120htz screen, and a bunch of other stuff I can't be bothered to remember. It's replacing my old Alienware 17, which lasted me a solid three years (it was new in 2014). Few days ago I forgot to close down Forza Horizon 4 before starting Witcher, and I didn't even notice a difference in the performance it was giving. Overall, it's way overkill for what I do, but I absolutely love it.

There are also RGB strips connected to Raspberry pi zero that hosts a discord bot. Which allows me to control them remotely from anywhere and to start/stop/reboot the PC without exposing any ports to internet.

then there is also that laptop from Dell: XPS 15 9530.

I have a gaming laptop pre-made model from Acer. It's low-end and doesn't have all the fancy bells and whistles, but I don't have any trouble playing a variety of games with it. I don't need to post my low-end specs but it's an i5-8300h CPU @2.3ghz (turbo up to 4.0), 8 gb RAM, and a Nvidia 1050GTX graphics card. Laugh at me if you people at the top of the PC food chain want, but it does me fine and didn't cost be thousands of dollars.
