About $1700 on my current PC in sig, including the monitor, mouse, keyboard and speakers.

I have had two builds during that time, some of my first build carried over to my second build though. I would say $2,000 which I think is pretty accurate.

Anyone that spends less than 3,000 every 6 months might as well go buy a Wii.

2 full pcs (including OS, monitor and peripherics)
- sempron 2.0ghz, 8400GS 512mb, 4gb ram god knows, Win XP Pro, 17" tube monitor.
- core2quad Q8400 2.66ghz, GTS 250 1gb, 4gb ram ddr2 667 dual channel, Win 7 64 bits ultimate, 20" lcd monitor.

About $2,000 after rebates. So far, I've had two CPU/mobo/RAM combos.
Zachnorn Everything is overrated.
