A few months ago I contacted newegg via chat and asked for a total of what I've spent, and it was stagerring. My account spending went back to Jan 2006, and it was more than buying a new high end car... I was a student from 2006-2010, so it made it that much worse. My average is approx $6,667 a year. Take into account I buy from Amazon as well (Prime account w/free shipping). But I also do a lot of builds for friends and family, so its not all for me.
I've probably spent about $4000 on hardware since I first paid for a computer way back in 2001. I can't say how much that spending will go up post graduation (Graduated in May). In the last 12 months, I've spent $1300.
I spend a ton on these things.
As the loving, devoted father of 5 of the little beasties I must say that they are almost as expensive as raising Junior. If one gets sick, I doctor it, if one needs attention, I'm there for it. And being loving and devoted I bestow all sorts of goodies on 'em. And if one should happen to die (heaven forbid!) I would grieve for it.
This is my 1st year buying any hardware, and since I built 2 computers, its been over $2500. Next year it won't be a fraction of that (I hope) Although I may do an open loop on my main rig next year because I love how open loops look, which means buying a case with a bigger, untinted side window and of course all the stuff for open loop.
i think you got your prices wrong should have started with $50 and worked from thiere not everyone spends a $1000 a year let alone $10,000 i tend to limit myself to about $500 but this year the upgraded pc has turned into new build cost about $1400 a $10,000 pc is more than i earn in 2 years it cost me 3.5 mounths in wages just to pay for the new build and i havent changed gpu yet
