    Unemployment and the fact that I'm waiting to just buy a whole new computer.

    Frankly that'd be a pretty strong computer if it had a stronger GPU. Everything else is good. If you come into some extra money, get a new GPU!

    I moved my TV and monitor. Being so close to the TV was getting pretty hard on my eyes.

    I've been thinking of upgrading this computer a little bit, It needs a few fans, New PSU and definitely a new GPU. But then again, I'm going to be getting around $400 a month each month, So I might aswell just wait a few and buy a new computer.

    Heatsink isn't tilted just the extra fan on top of it is.

    Really no point.

    The case is okay, (could be better, but it works) CPU is best gaming CPU out atm, you obviously have good enough RAM, your HDD is certainly usable.

    If I had $1,000, for instance, here's what I'd do:

    ASRock Extreme4 Z77 motherboard
    Crucial m4 128GB SSD (Or Samsung 840 Pro)
    GTX 660 Ti or HD 7870 GHz (depending on NVidia or AMD lover)
    New heatsink for CPU
    New case and PSU.

    Would make it top notch. :P Hope this helps!

    Sadly, eventually all keyboards give up. I ran an Apple Extended II for a solid 15 years before it gave up the ghost. I assume you're keeping that ancient keyboard because you like the way it works or something. You can remove that color tint with this stuff. A friend who collects ancient video game systems told me about it: he used it to make 40 year old plastic game console (like Magnavox Oddyssey and such) look like new and it worked well on my keyboard and Commodore 64/128 too.

    Worth giving a go if you like old hardware but don't want it to look like you fished it out of a dumpster.
