    Just bought another Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400 2GB Kit ($140 minus $30 rebate,same as in my specs.. which is sick, becuase I paid 2x that in November to get the first kit!!!), got the D-Link DNS-323 ($210) with a 500GB Segate SATA drive ($FREE!!!!!), G-15 Keyboard ($75), and G5 mouse ($40).

    I figure by the end of the year I'll plop down another $1000 or so getting a new video card, or maybe even to upgrade my main machine, and redoing it as an MCE or Vista Ultimate multimedia machine.

    aquired a Wii and a DS lite this year so far, but as regards comp bits all I've bought for myself is more disc space :(
    just rebuilt gf's computer though, what a huge difference DDR2 and SATA2 make to the general speed of the thing :eek: windows was installed before I knew what was happening, think a big upgrade is on the way for me real soon.
    wittering again, so far this year probably only between 500 - 1000. heading for my third / fourth mp3 player if that counts? 2nd ipod of the year coming soon , damn things keep breaking on me.

    Guess it depends on the currency being used:lol:.
    I've spent 3 goats and a duck.

    On a more sensible not i've probably spent about 500 with my second graphics card and various other bits and bobs

    I'm guessing it's US dollars.

    Been buying quite a lot this year, practially a new system, minus HDD's and PSU and later on a new case (Antec 182se)

    Well ... <sigh> ... I'll be dumping my 160GB Seagate SATA drive to a client, so I think I might get myself another 500GB Seagate SATAII drive to throw into the DNS-323 NAS box, and set it up for RAID 1. Should only cost me about $100.

    To be honest, this will be the first hard drive I've had to buy in over a year now. The first 500GB Seagate, and the 2x75GB WD Raptors didn't cost me a penny (they were.. um... bribes).

    I bought two 500GB hard drives and an usb stick. That's probably all I'll buy for the year.

    Over 5,000 is what I voted..

    I got a really expensive TV- (about $3300 altogether for that) then some smaller stuff, like a $300 PC racing wheel (Logitech G25), a new router, I think it has been less than a year since I got my 7900GTX- but it is getting close. Got a new receiver a couple weeks ago, that was about 370 bucks, got as 500GB HD and external enclosure for the HD DVR... a camera with 2 memory cards, bought my wife an 8GB Sansa at Best Buy (probably paid too much), a Uniden digital phone system with an extra handset, etc, etc..

    Damn, I have had a great F'ing year, and it ain't over yet! :w00t: Last year would have been only 500 or less, maybe up to 1000 if I was lucky. 2007 has been awesome so far... I have to settle down now, or in 2008 I will be eating a lot of Ramen noodles.

    I was wondering which currency, if it is Indian rupees heck its squillions :p If you are talking US green backs then it is over $1500. This isn't all for me I purchase for other people - I doubt that this counts though?

    Around 600, since I went from AMD to Intel. But that will go under 500, once I sel my old parts.
