Use the price that you spent, not what it's worth right now. If you game on more than one computer or have multiple gaming computers, then please use the price of the one you consider your primary gaming computer. If you don't play games :( , then please use the price of the computer you use most often.

I'm just curious to see how much people here spend. It'd be interesting to see how many people go for high end rigs, how many people go for average ones, and how many people go for budget ones.

If you got the money you can buy a decent high end rig.

Ehhh hard to say. Over the last few years things have been swapped in and out and upgraded.

But if you take it as the total cost of everything currently sitting in the PC, plus current peripherals, then maybe 1500. This is ignoring things like PS3 controller and TV which gets used elsewhere.

But obviously you can't just translate that to USD using currency conversions because we get massively ripped off here in the UK (and the rest of Europe I think).

Just the tower or everything attached to it?

Sure. Rebates are basically guaranteed money anyway if you do them properly.

Interpret "How much did you spend on your gaming computer" however you want. For instance, if you bought some nice $200 headphones that's usable for other activities, then that probably shouldn't count.

Including monitor, OS, extra fans, KB and mouse, around $3000. But I didn't spend all that at once.
