This seems to be the common thinking today - put it on a credit card and you don't have to pay for it, right? Then the next thing you want, just put it on the credit card.... Five years later you are wondering how you got yourself into $25,000 - $50,000 worth of debt, and you are blaming the credit card companies, and eventually you file for bankruptcy.
No thank you, I will wait until I have cash in hand.

Exactly, thank you. A good addition to this would be that to keep up to date with hobbies is expensive, especially in this fast moving PC world. If you stay one step behind, and buy all the equipment that everyone else is selling cheap after they move on to the newest and greatest, you can conserve. I personally haven't, but it's a thought...
Also, talk about POWER CONSUMPTION! You remember when a 150W power supply was adequate? Now these cards are sucking 750W alone! Add accessories and you are pulling more than a kilowatt
to run your system!
I guess that counters all the "going green" you could possibly do...
