It's acutally very sickening when I look at the last year.

I've bought...

Radeon 4770 512MB
Antec 902
Thermaltake 750 Watt psu
i5 750
4GB OCZ DDR3
4GB Corsair DDR3
Geforce gtx 470
Radeon 6870
2 Radeon 6950's
120 hz monitor
Phenom 2 x2 BE
Phenom 2 x3 BE
Phenom 2 x6
1156 motherboard
2 am3 motherboards
CM 690II Advanced
Intel SSD
Blu Ray Drive
2 Hyper 212+ coolers
Corsair h50

and probably more that I can't remember. The worst part about it was all the lateral moves. If I would have just saved all the money I'd be running an x58 rig with 2 580's lol
I'm sure you would have. But as you said you enjoy new hardware. So a good way to look at it is instead of actually buying games and playing them, costing $50 a pop, you traded pieces of hardware and played with those. Sometimes I think setting up new hardware can be more fun to me then actually playing games on the rig.

That's I think more of the reason for me to consider upgrading to Sandy Bridge. I really don't need anything faster than what I have now, but it's been a couple of years since I've upgraded my rig.
