EDIT: Oh, and did I forget about mentioning that I've seen some people's builds that have like 16-32GB of 2400 MHz RAM? Now for AMD's APUs, I wouldn't complain, well except for the excessive amount of memory.

But for an i5? And for gaming? I could throw that money at a better GPU or cooling system.

EDIT 2: I'm fairly sure there are some people that buy K-editions with mobos that don't support OCing. Back during the early Sandy Bridge era, there were 2-3 different chipsets, and one of then didn't allow OCing.

*facepalm*

You can program to use all of that 4 GB vram with gpu compute. No it's not a gaming card, but it can be useful.

You know, as long as it's their own money for their own rig, I have no problems with it at all. If you want to drop a ton of money on an unbalanced and laughable build, that's your prerogative. For example, I see no reason to buy a Corsair PSU when there is almost always a just as good PSU for less, a just as good PSU with better features (like modular cables) for the same price or less, or a better PSU for the same price or less; however, I won't stop someone from getting one if they want. I also see no use for 2133MHz RAM in a gaming build or a reason to buy a 650D when the Define R4 is, in my opinion, nicer and cheaper. And to me, there's no reason to buy an Asus mobo over a Gigabyte mobo at all pricepoints, MSI at the mid to upper range, Biostar on the low end, or ASRock on the high end (the OC Formula is a beast), yet people still do it. Again, that's your money to do with what you please.

My big issue is when those people try and push an unbalanced or overpriced build on someone else to get them to spend their hard earned money on it. That's when the gloves come off and it's fine to toss them into a sea of server fans.

And that's exactly what he preached to me. I told him i had a LGA1366 and he laughed at me for having "old, slow tech" What i didn't tell him is that i have a Xeon L5520 clocked at 3.6GHz

and about your ssd... i would never buiy a 180 gb hd.. only 60 120 240 500 etc..

Um, that 1300W he bought is 80 Plus Gold.

What's wrong with a 180GB SSD? It's a multiple of 60GB just like the first three you listed. Only difference between 120, 180, and 240 is the size of the flash chips or number of channels attached to the integrated controller. Can you qualify your opinon a bit further? You got a superstitious issue with 180GB? heh.

Option E: educate them on hardware, show them some benchmarks, and if they still want to throw away money on sub-optimal components after that, let them. It's their money, and I'm pretty sure the world economy would collapse utterly if it wasn't for uninformed people spending more money than needed.

^^^ I love this post. I couldn't have said it better myself.

I do independent web development for enterprise customers as a living. I routinely get asked to do "stupid stuff" with regard to projects, and I do what I'm told. If it weren't for stupid people making stupid decisions to do stupid things, I'd be broke. It's the Circle of Life, and I want to eat my antelope tomorrow. LOL.

Well said, we all started somewhere and probably reached a point where we thought we knew plenty only to find out we still had more to learn. Sometimes all it takes is a good explanation and helping hand to guide someone from another person's misguided "expert" opinion.
