I'm here! I'm furry! I'll try not to shed! =^_^=
My 4 year old Q6600, Gigabyte EP45 DS3L and 8800GT did cost me $800 at the time, but I think I've spent roughly $1300 if I include ram, HDD and PSU upgrades.
My current laptop is a late 2011, baseline 15" Macbook Pro with a 128gb SSD and 8gb of ram. Worth about $2200 with taxes.
My next rig is going to be fairly expensive, though I'm still saving up for that.

2010 MacBook Pro w/ 2.4GHz C2D, 4GB RAM, 250GB hard drive, 320M graphics, 13" screen, lightweight, great battery life, etc. $1120
I upgraded the RAM to 8GB ($80 from Newegg iirc) and replaced the hard drive with a 128GB SSD that I already owned (had paid like $240 for it the prior year iirc).
edit: Oh, I also have a 24" Dell 2408WFP monitor I bought ages ago for like $500. I use that with the above sometimes, though it's mainly used for my Xbox 360. I don't have nor want a desktop computer.
I don't play anything remotely demanding, and if I do, it's on a lower resolution, 1440x900 or 1366x768.
GTX 460 v2
About $550 after rebates.
128GB M4 SSD
$580 including SSD, RAM and drive caddy for HDD.
Unless something drastically changes, I don't see myself upgrading for another 3+ years.
