If you use what your setup is worth in Present dollars then it clears up a lot of the confusion.
What you paid at the time is not what your current setup is worth. I almost bought a 2nd rig for $400 that had a Intel CPU that was worth over 1k when new. It was a sweet little setup, but I didnt want to spend that much money and have to deal with problems.
I think the 1K mark is good. I always look at peoples sig rig and surprised at how most of the setup on OCN are not enthusiast extreme builds.
