uh.... a scarily large amount. 

I mean, in last 2 years I spent 1600€ just on a SSD and graphic card. Most people have 3 generations of whole computers for this money. And I'm not even overdoing it with SLi configs or NVMe's in RAID0. Just a regular single device high end system. Then you see people with 4x 1TB NVMe in RAID0 pushing like 5TB/s and 4x Titan cards that cost twice as much as my car is currently worth lol.

Better than Intel's other shitty mobile chipsets that could still only address 2GB RAM in 2008, when right back in 2006 you could get laptops with Nvidia chipsets+iGPU, which could actually handle 4GB RAM, and at higher clock speeds as well.

Can't even get my 2008 Asus laptop to work with 2.5GB RAM. And that's Socket P.

novideo chipsets are scary since I use loonix on that laptop, but anything is better than GMA 950

i7 3770k @ 1.3v 4.0GHz | 2x8GB CAS9 1600MHz | Radeon VII | ASUS P8Z77-V LE | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

I record the prices of items I buy in PCPartPicker and for the last 3 years, and I have spent US$995.48 (probably more) on PC parts, spread across 3 different PCs.

How much did you spend on PCs?

it will take a while to calculate, lol. literally all my money goes to pc or tech related stuff :P

They say no images here, but too bad! They couldn't stop me!

I build a computer 6 months ago, half of them are second handed parts. It was about $950.


I bought a old workstation and 2 3TB HDD last year to make a NAS. 


And I might upgrade to zen2 later this year (or navi, if it is good) , and I am very likely to buy a second display and a mouse in the next week.


So the final answer is : a unhappy fiancee.
