Some nice stuff in this thread. Once I get around to cleaning my room and making it look semi habitable I'll post my "rig". It even has a rust spot where some beer got on the top of the case and I forgot to wipe it off. Durban has bad rust...

I love getting deals too... who doesn't? But what makes me especially happy is being economical by doing more with less.

I bought my crappy Dell 570 desktop 4 years ago and recently considered building a new rig from scratch. But then I realized that my education comes first, so I spent around $250 to upgrade my existing computer to double the speed/performance instead. And yet it is still far below average, but I'm perfectly fine with it because it suits my needs as well as my budget.

Afterwards, I decided that I wanted to try and add a dual monitor set-up with my newly upgraded (but still crappy) computer. I sold my old IN2010 monitor and bought two IN2030s ($100 each) with a used monitor stand off Kijiji ($50). Again, I'm happy because it works with what I want and doesn't break my bank.

Upon moving out, I had to figure out a way to fit both my computer and my TV in a tiny little corner of my room on a limited budget. So I looked around until I found a cool little clamping shelf bracket at Ikea. I cut a piece of scrap wood to the appropriate size/length, painted it, and attached it onto the bracket as an addition to my desk for my TV to sit on. $10 for two brackets, $10 for paint, and a free piece of wood.

All in all, I spent ($250 +$250 + $20) $520 to turn my piece of crap into a piece of bronze. It isn't diamond or gold by any means, but I'm fine with it.

That's my story. The reason I'm below the price limitation is purely by choice, not because I am trying to fit into a label of being average.

These two posts are why I love this thread! I never would have thought to put an old racing seat on a desk chair bottom, but that is such an awesome idea!!! Also, the Ikea hack Twisty did, I mean come on, the do more with less philosophy at work!! Bravo to you both, I love it (and I love the ideas, I might have to use that Ikea hack to make myself some shelves on my desk).

I think my work setup qualifies. An old emachines system with a 2.x Ghz AMD Athlon, 2GB RAM, and an ATI Radeon x1550 (I think) running Windows XP MCE. It takes about 20 minutes after login to be usable. My dad upgraded his monitor so I took his old one so I have dual monitors now.


I don't really do anything at work that requires me to have a computer but that one was collecting dust so I claimed it.
