Benchmarking, folding, actual work, etc?

People that see computers as a hobby will find more justification in spending money on better parts or cosmetic upgrades, etc.
I just dropped $2,200 on a mountain bike because I'm a bike hobbyist. Some people are fine with the stuff you find at Wal-Mart for $100. It all comes down to what you value.

I know a guy that does pocketbike and gas-powered RC car races. He's dropped over $10,000 between the two hobbies and couldn't be happier about it.

I have spend over 10,000 dollars on my hair, and no one cries about it. Since 3 years ago I have taken 60 dollar haircuts every month and lets not talk about the products I buy. If you like something, then you will spend lots of money on it.

Here's the thing though: PC tech moves fast. Much faster than dirt bikes or RC cars. And, it also has severe diminishing returns past a certain point. So, not only is what you're spending tons of money on going to be obsolete very quickly, but you get almost no performance gain from throwing so much money at it. Other hobbies that people dump large amounts of money into don't have these problems to nearly the same extent.
