This has got to be a joke topic. Like is everyone in this thread in on some inside joke I don't see? Are people actually suggesting he waste money on an anime figure? Are you all under 12 years old? It's stuff like this that makes me question the human race.
You should just donate money to charity if you're gonna waste money on anime figures. Or just burn the money.
I don't really understand the Anime thing either. How much does a figure cost though? If you're lumping in figures with computer parts i'm guessing 200 - 400 bucks?
I'd go for a new video card personally. You'll probably get the most use out of it.
