I only got my first pc in 2010 and since then have gone through a fair bit of hardware.
3x mobo, 3x case, 4gpu's, 3cpu's,3psu's, 2sets ram, 5monitors, 2 cpu air and 3 closed loop coolers, 3mouse's, 7keyboard's, 4 headset and 2 surround setups. Plus all the little things we forget about lol.
I just bought things when i found something i liked more than what i had at the time and a lot was down to boredom as i'm stuck in the house most of the time so upgrading/ building my rig is a hobby as it is with a lot of other's. I used it all to learn as much as i could too but now i've slowed down on the buying and plan to upgrade as and when needed. Well maybe :P
I still have a small list of upgrades needed / wanted though.

I was always really good with my hands, Making things with wood or building cars. I had to be out busy doing something and have always loved learning so i need something to keep my mind active while being stuck indoors. I started off just wanting a rig for gaming so payed a shop to build me one but wasn't happy with the result. Thats where the slippery began :P
I was the opposite to you as me and electricals have never mixed, My mrs had to tell me how to wire a plug but that all changed once i got a pc and now can't get enough of it.

True man true feck just sitting there like a zombie

I feel keeping my mind occupied helps with some issues

As I say time on your hands if not used turns to thinking time so I like to fix crap I even take my pc apart re build it


I have always loved how things work down to the old big TVs


It's buzzing as well when you rebuild a PC and its slightly better

I always dread powering on after i've upgraded something and build up to it lol. The feeling of relief when it boots is wicked though.
