Windows 7: How much have you spent on building your whole computer

26 Apr 2010   #11

Windows 8.1 Professional x64
 
 

Too much. I think most of my student loan has gone on upgrading my PC. As well as most of my wages from my part time job.

Yeah, that's a standard type TN panel...which is essentially what I have. I've got a slightly cheaper 23" Acer at the present time.

Thanks for the information. I've always had good luck with my Dell monitors. I have a couple of them at home and that is what we pretty much use exclusively at work in the office.

I did read about the A01 revision or higher online...so that would be something that I would be looking at. I've got an 18.1 Dell UltraSharp on one of my older computers now and it's been a fantastic monitor. Everything between that one and now has been somewhat of a letdown. So, I'm really looking forward to getting a new "really nice" monitor. Considering you look at the monitor all day long, it should be one of those things we don't skimp out on...but many people do.

Windows 7 x64 HP, Windows 7 HP, Windows 7 Ult
 
 

Back in the day (486, P-II, P-III) the sweet spot for a custom build was about $1500, and that was what I typically spent. Price stayed about the same as capability (HD, RAM, video) went up.

My last four cost < $700 each, not counting monitors - two laptops, two desktops bought over the last five years.

Good question - as my system is continually updated, it's a little tricky to add it all up.

I'd say I have spent, over a period of time, at least $1200.00 on this system.
