My sig rig was bought August o7, and since then the only things I've upgraded/bought for it was a 500GB HDD, a CPU cooler and the beloved Antec 900. <3 Which is 300$ for those 3 things. (Denmark is expensive.) And I'm not planning on upgrading anything until the Nehalem becomes cheap as dirt and is being given away free. Or until I'm bored one day with alot of $$ in my wallet.

If you watercool and watercool each new system decently you are talking of $1,100 even before you buy the first actual computer component. Then add a top of the line CPU, 8GB of PC2000 RAM, triple SLi 280GTX setup on a Nvidia 780i board, etc, and you are quickly over $10K. That is without a screen, operating system and input devices, as I assume that you have those.

$1,300 from last year to today on random stuff. I had a computer bite the dust, so I had to get new parts. They sucked, so I got nice parts

It's just an estimate (I searched for my order history on Newegg for just last year), but I spend between 1000 and 2000 dollars every year on computer parts. I've pretty much revamped my computer at least once every single year, and I have 0 of my original parts from my first computer in my current rig.

I do, however, have nearly all the original pieces of my first computer around the house, with the exception of the case and power supply. Which is pretty nice.

I remember once I was building a rig and my videocard wouldn't fit (tried fitting an AGP into a PCI express), so I went on NewEgg and bought two cards, haha. Two 8800GTs. It was awesome.

But yeah, 1000 - 2000 for me. I've already spent a grand this year, and I'll probably put another grand into accessories like a monitor and sound card. I love computers.

Yep, I am in that camp.

Going to have to buy her a Mac Air next year so that she gives me my Games Laptop($3,000+) back and does not notice the amount that I spend on my rigs, NAS, remote PC/TV setup, etc.
