This makes me sick when I add all of them up and I have spent nearly $9,000 just on video cards.I could have bought me a cheap car ,since the last car I bought new was $10,000.I would hate to add up all the proccessor's I bought not includeing all the memory I have bought plus Harddrives,CD and DVD burners,Speakers, keyboards and mice,steering wheels,Power supplies,sound cards,Monitors and PC cases. I am sure it would be close to $20,000.Man thats a lot of money ,I wish I had it all back so I could build the ultimate computer now.
