Kick, with all due respect, you need to grow some balls haha. Life is all about risking, in my experience. If you don't take the risk, you'll always be the same boring person with the same boring life. You risk to gain more.
I've already stated that I back everything up with my external 2tb drive.
Also, yes. I do play many many games. I'm a game freak, and I share this computer with my brother. SC2, Dia2, Dia3, SC1, Wow, Dota, Hon, MS, CS, CSS, TF2, L4D2, Mafia 2, JustCause 2, BC2, MW2, CodBO, LoL, Portal 2, Crysis 2, Assassins Creed 2, N4S HP, Shift 2, TestDrive Un 2, Blur, F1 2010.
I also tend to store all my songs, and believe me, I have ALOT, in ALAC in the HDD, not the External, because I have the hard copy (CDs) as well so I might as well save some space in my external since I have countless movies and shows all in 1080/720p.
Never ending upgrading bug? Wrong. I've already bought my rig, and now I'm just in need for some components like HDD. However, I'd like to end this here by raiding my drive since if I decide to raid it later, I'll have to erase all my games and media to raid it, which means I'll probably never get to raid anything ever.
Yes, I had a budget of 1500, and it accounted for the HDDs, lights, and window. I've spend around 1200 so far.
Please don't assume things about others so much.
