It's a nice relic and it's still just as good as when it was manufactured.
I got into computer stuff within the past 400 days when I did a RAM upgrade on my laptop. I have:
-Made my rig
-Got a mech keyboard (well, two, but one was a gift)
-Upgraded my laptop's CPU
-Purchased three SSDs (since June, I might add)
-Purchased two HDDs (I posses more SSDs than HDDs, what of it?)
-Got a floppy drive setup (I blame ASRock - they gave a port that needed to be filled)
-Crossfired (it seemed like fun)
Cost? I'd prefer not to think about it, but ~$1400 seems right. And now I want a single Black switch to mutilate for its spring or Green switch. I need a soldering pump and third hand too. I've been messing with some Lego electronics too and what I have now is not cutting it.
I guess if you put it like that I have too.
I've spent over $2000 in the past year due to OCN, but that's spread out all over the place.
Built my first rig around the time I joined OCN, bought my first mech keyboard, bought my first set of nice headphones, bought my first proper mic, etc.
I have ADD that way--just get my feet wet in a bunch of different categories. Spend a few hundred on audio, but still no desktop amp or dac.
Buy a nice mechanical keyboard, but no custom keycaps.
Buy a decent USB mic, but didn't get into proper mics and a recording interface.
I have commitment issues, lol.

Yeah this is pretty much how the show goes.
Pretty sad if people are actually selling things for 1/25th the actual value.
Although I've heard before that a lot of the time it's just collectors who get asked to bring their stuff in, and they don't actually sell it to the shop.
Not sure if that's true or not, but it'd make more sense.
