Rather than buy a whole new PC I believe I am going to simply upgrade my current build over the next few months here in Korea. The updates will be chronicled here. I will be replacing parts, adding others, and doing a minor case mod. The case mod being the first item on my list.
Painting the case from the original red frame with black grill/hardpoints to a nice neutral primer color with a neutral black on the plastic parts.
I will be replacing the following list of parts:
