I admit I have a problem...

When it comes to spending I'm pretty good EXCEPT when it comes to computer parts..

 

Today  I got a power supply for my old Dell dimension  4550  and it didn't fit so I decided I  would build a retro computer

 

 

Mind you I just spent less them a grand on a laptop.

 

I think I need help

 

Who else has a pc spending problem?

To be honest with you, I don't have a PC spending problem at all.

 

I work in I.T, so I am with, near and on computers pretty much 24/7. 

 

As they say: "A painter's house will never be painted nicely, a mechanic's car will always be a crapbox".

 

I just tend to buy a new system every ~4 years. And give the old PC to my little brother.

I never really spent much on my PC's. The two laptops I have I got for $70 (then $60 for an SSD, and $35 for a powercord and ram upgrade) and $150 (then a $65 battery and $9 adapter), and my mom bought everything for my desktop build except my case which I spent $160 on. So $549 in total spent on PC's. Right now I want a SSD for my Thinkpad x220, but instead of spending money on a mSata drive to put my OS on I've been buying clothes and food instead. I don't really game or use my computer for more than web browsing and photo/video editing, so I haven't had a need to upgrade anything or spend more money on it.

May be I don't have a spending problem I just like having project

 

 

I don't know I'm almost 30 and I get stressed spending money but at the same time this is a hobby of mine. 

 

That latitude was meant for school so I don't feel bad spending that much money on it.

Whaaaaat? I have noooo idea what you are talking about... *buys 1000W PSU and gets second 1080 for SLI when one 1080 already runs games at 1080p ultra with 120+ fps and I have a G-Sync screen now...* ? Totally didn't upgrade to an R7 2700X, RGB RAM, and STRIX mobo a month before that... and I am definitely not still ogling over new hardware and such....

 

EDIT: Oh, forgot the 500GB NVMe drive I got recently as well.

I mostly ogle the new hardware and pay attention to new releases just to be informed and up to date. It's gonna be another year before I can afford something like an RTX 2070 much less need a new GPU entirely. I might even look into a used 980Ti depending on how cheap they are by the time I need a GPU upgrade.

 

I don't see myself needing a CPU upgrade for at least another couple years. I've basically got my whole upgrade path planned out, I just need to get another 8GB memory and an SSD. A headset wouldn't be bad either.

I like to get as much as I can out of hardware, one of the reasons I'm gonna rock my GTX 780 into the ground. My motherboard is fine, it's a good solid board. Case will be fine until I need more than 2 HDDs.

 

I just keep up on stuff because I like to and think it's fun, and I like to have some good plans for the road ahead.

 

I definitely would not say I have a PC spending problem, but there are definitely people that do...

I scored an EVGA 980 Ti SC for $199 in EVGA's B-Stock sale last week, you should be able to find them pretty cheap used, or keep an eye on any sales EVGA or other manufacturers have.

not me

 

it's a first world privilege, it's literally impossible for me to buy more components at ridiculously high prices, $3800 cash for a 2080Ti when it was just launched and it's like twice if you buy it with a credit card, I don't really want to see the local prices for the upcoming 9900k, I find it disgusting, anyway, last time I was at a store buying a hard drive I heard a dude asking for a computer to ''play games'' and the vendor offered him a ~$800 build and I was there listening like wow OK it must have an 1080 or something... nnnnnope, it was a G4560 with a 1050Ti and 4GB memory everything inside a shitty slim case and with no monitor or peripherals, I felt really bad for the guy because apparently the computer was for his son.

 

picked up my drive and left quickly thinking about the $800 Pentium and how lucky I am for having an acceptable build with an 8600k which some even consider an entry level or weak CPU, maybe it is where they live, I understand that, but in mine a rig with an 8th gen chip is a top level platform only a few can afford, when I posted in local forums about my new build everyone was surprised and said I must be rich (I'm not) and asking for pics, a close friend was able to bring the components from the US for me that's how I got them, otherwise I'd also have a Pentium

 

my idea now is that it must be reaaaally easy to go and buy random components just for the sake of spending money in the US, the UK or Canada, a CPU doesn't represents 3 months of mildly well paid work there, it'd be crazy

Yeah I spent the last 6 months buying new (used, new to me) monitors. One was actually new in box, but I got 40% off new price. Finally got to where I am now. I think I've had 5 total. Just got a 1080 Ti yesterday. It was a good deal. Oh I also bought Sennheiser HD 6XXs and the Schiit stack about... 2 months ago? And I plan on upgrading to an 8700K once they start going for sale used. Can't forget that 500GB 970 Pro SSD I need, since my 850 Evo is out of room. Oh and that custom loop I was planning. Yup that's up next after I upgrade to Coffee Lake. Hopefully a new case. I would have never bought the 450D if I knew it had no cable management room in the back. Maybe a Corsair Air 740... or a 460X. Something that I can show off my loop in. And SLI would be great, since playing on 1440p UW can be demanding at times. I should have just bought the other GPU the guy was selling yesterday really. Honestly, that's all I can think of at the moment. But once I've done that...... you know the drill. There's always more.

 

Well actually I'm not the biggest fan of my two nice monitors, so maybe I'll get a PG279Q, those specs look juicy.

I'm in the same boat.  I don't see myself getting another rig for awhile.  I hardly tool around with it like I used to and pretty much just use it to get work done and play the occassional VN game.  I also have a budget laptop to take with me in the event of travel.

I've got it pretty bad. 

 

I've had money set aside on my semi-crap IT desktop support job salary for nearly 6 months now for my new build. And even then I'm not entirely sure I can still be able to afford the 9900K and am contemplating going for a cheaper Z390 board. My rent's been raised recently and I've got another fund saved up for moving (crappy old house, crappy landlord, crappy neighborhood), so things for me are pretty tight. 

 

I'm almost tempted to wait for Zen 2 at this point.

I always get my CPU one tier above what I need. Always a locked i7 person. 

I do get a lot of value from it though... i7 has an insane high resale value.

 

But I did do something like : "selling my whole PC part by part, at a loss, then build a new one a year later". 

Other than that, I think that mac peripherals are really expensive and I am really into it... 

 

Also a way to deal with this is to sat aside pocket money each months. Those are money you can spent on whatever stuff. Then save a few months to buy whatever you want. 

If it is not broken, let's fix till it is.
