$1200 four years ago. Didn't include monitors, OS, keyboard, mouse, hard drives, and ... Actually it's easier to say it was just for the motherboard, ram, cpu, gpu and case. I reused everything else. I've never had to buy everything at once and have always had access to free copies of Windows. This was what I would consider my first build though because prior to that I had been upgrading something that was originally a prebuilt.

I.....don't recall. It was about a decade ago.

All I remember price wise was an almost $200 20" CRT monitor that I nicknamed "Desk Crusher" (it weighted like 50 pounds) and a Geforce 6800 that was $400.

Only reason I remember the price of those 2 is because they both failed eventually.

About $800, almost 3 years ago. Still using the machine, though I did replace the SSD I had as my boot/OS drive when it bricked.

AMD Phenom II Quad-core processor, 3.4GHz., 8GB ram, and a GeForce GTX 550Ti ; I'm to this day quite satisfied with the performance.

The parts were ordered a few at a time over several paydays; I'd just gotten out of massive credit card debt and had no desire to go back.

14 months ago.

1800 (so around $2400-2800)

Went a bit mental after getting a good permanent job after uni. That is everything though mouse, keyboard, headset, os, the PC itself, monitor, antivirus, sli 670s.... The lot basically.

Probably my best gaming purchase ever.
PLAYING - Killzone Shadow Fall (PS4), Bravely Default (3DS), Resident Evil 4 HD (PS3)
MOST WANTED - Lightning Returns, Watchdogs, Dark Souls 2
