Whats your most outrageous purchase for no performance?

post #1 of 108
Thread Starter 
I just spent over $1000+ on parts to change my setup and improve the look of it. There will be a slight improvement in the video card from a 560TI to a 7970 watercooled, but other then that performance wise... I just threw out over $1000 for about 2 weeks of hard custom jobs and the pride of a nice rig that barely anyone else will appreciate but me...

Whats some of the most outrageous things you have done for your build? Make me feel better about the amount I spent on fittings, water cooling parts, and cool reservoirs!!! UGH Im gonna be sick LOL

Probably the $1000 I spent on water cooling on my $1000 rig biggrin.gif
But then I did go spend $400 on a video card that will be getting watercooled tomorrow biggrin.gif

This is almost 100% to a tee what I just did, I had my rig already watercooled, but not GPU, so I went nuts and bought new $400 video card + waterblock, then compression fittings, and new cpu waterblock and new reservoir... all for about 15-25hrs, of labor and hopefully a working PC in the end!! LOL

man first world problems huh!biggrin.gif

Not outrageous, but recent - spending on a Bitspower D5 mod kit (basically a hunk of metal painted black) so it'd look nice. I don't even have LEDs in my case to light it up.

Not yet installed - working on the loop at the moment. My loop is going to cost more than the sum of my parts. Given how much of a bargain I got my rig together pre-WC, WC has destroyed my budget.

Where would I start...Buying an LD PC V8 for starters lol. Also starting with an i7 960 and 6970 and under a year going to sli 580s and 3 diff cases, then adding liquid cooling, switching to 3570k and 690, then changing cases again and going with sli titan and h100i. That's all in under 2 years lol. Oh also getting a BenQ xl2420tx and two months later getting a catleap 2b and giving the benq to my brother.
