There are ways to save some money on them. Use a cheaper alternative such as barrow but they all add up to a large sum of money at the end. I’ve learned the hard way and ended up having a cooling system and the case cost more than actual hardware in my rig)))
yep, at a certain point i started think of my computer in 3 sections (actual parts, water-cooling, and peripherals: case mouse etc.) and it adds up fast if you future proof.
thankfully 2 of the sections dont require upgrades every few years, save for major upgrades and occasionally things die, but other than a mobo recently dying for an inexplicable reason. Only plus is it was in warranty so i got a new one, Just no info as to why or what happened an how it may have happened/how to avoid it again.
