I usually buy top of the line hardware, I know I will realistically never leverage it on a general daily basis. I am personally building a threadripper PC, simply for having a new toy to play with. My main use of the my PC is gaming and multi-media. I by no means need this level of hardware and realistically with 4k gaming the cpu is virtually not a factor.
I dont know if you realize this or not, but this is and always has been an enthusiasts forum. Most of us here have historically been enthusiasts more so than professional use consumers. Realistically most of us that actually invest a good bit of money in our PCs do not leverage the hardware in them in meaningful ways.
I buy what I want to buy as I view my PC as an entertainment expense and a hobby. It has nothing to do with me 'showing' how much money I have or flaunting my success (or lack there of) in any way shape or form.
I honestly dont think you realize where you are at or what this forum represents. This is an enthusiasts forum, not a professional use forum. Its also important to note that the older enthusiasts here are considerably more knowledgeable than you seem to be aware of, regardless this is not the forum to expect for people to craft their build solely around intended use (otherwise most of us would very rarely rebuild our PCs).Edited by Woundingchaney - 8/24/17 at 10:08am
