Yep. I'm afraid this new PC hobby is affecting my hi-fi hobby that I have been deep into since I was a kid. Only bad thing is about the PC hobby is the cost of ownership. As we all know computers DO NOT hold their value. In hi-fi the cost of ownership is much better, unless your talking about CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, AV Receiver, these things do not hold value at all. Speakers and two channel equipment does. I have a pair of speakers that were $15,000 back in 1996, I could still sell them for around $6,000 today. What would a $15k computer from 1996 sell for today? About as much as it cost to take it to the trash.

This is always in the back of my mind when I buy PC components. But man it's fun!
