Well, IMO, a person's best bet for investing in times of potential volatility is in assets. Not commodities, since those are also volatile from speculation, but things like mutual funds, company stocks, collectibles, etc. Diversification is very important, of course, but gold is a bad move because of potential strengthening of consumer and investor confidence, and just holding on to cash is a bad move, since USD loses money to inflation over time.

Or, if you're like me, and have a bunch of debt that needs to be paid off, that's always a good option too.

Pay off debts, then spend it on whatever will satisfy you the most. If the money is meant for your PC only, I'd get a sound card and nice set of speakers and a new monitor.

Agreed, gotta keep everyone happy!

Or if your GPU satisfies you enough already, you can buy a lot of games with that $$$

Donate it to someone in need. Amnesty international perhaps, or AMD.

Couldn't resist, sorry.

Anyhow, consider grabbing you a nice IPS monitor. I've heard nothing but good things about them.

Assuming you're not going to try saving it, figure out what about your system you like the least and upgrade that. Keep moving on to another component until the money is gone.

Or better yet, just save it.

It has a great design that is durable, easy to work on, and cheap enough to not break the bank. That was my first truck and back then it was a completely different vehicle.

Now they are waterproof, all steel gears in the transmission, much faster, and a blast. You can get it for around $190 and that includes a battery. I would recommend a peak charger as well since the wall one takes hours.

With that truck you can see if you like the hobby and get a feel for it. If you like tinkering and going fast, I highly recommend it. From there, you can catapult into more expensive and/or complex vehicles. A visit to your local hobby shop would be good to so you can see them in person and maybe even test drive one.
