My Dell Monitor 27"'s of goodness - only place I could get guarenteed latest revision was from an ebay shop paid £749 for it and over the moon! When I got it out of the box it was like my wife when she first looked in me pants...holy !!! its massive!!

Got used to it now though would never go back to 22" after this!

2nd 8800GT for 175 quid during the first week of release when there was a huge stock shortage. The 1st one I got for 145 on release day died and I couldn't wait for RMA.

Thanks everyone :)
Cheers

I strongly recommend everyone to sum up the whole cost spending on your pc system
I did mine, it's quite huge
it was beyond my expectation

LOL

ATi 4870 512MB or my oldish 22" Samsung monitor. Not very exciting.

Most expensive single component I've ever bought would probably be a 21" Sony CRT back before LCDs were around.

One of these:

I got given[won] a Samsung 26' CRT at a gaming comp about 5 years ago, they retailed at about 900 quid at that time. Haha.

A moment of total madness a few years ago.....AMD FX-53 at over £600.

To this day I dunno what I was thinking when I hit "buy".

My 100" screen (sanyo PLV-Z700 :D), just shy of £1k. Second to that would be my 24" samsung SM-2443BW, can't remember what I paid for it but ocuk are currently selling them for £225.

Prolly a monitor or CRT or something but really this is my best buy ...

Back in the day when ppl had 64meg mp3 players I went out and bought a 2gig PCMCIA hard disk which I keep to this day :)

Slide that into an ipaq and voilà you have a 2gig mp3 player !!!! Whooo Hooo look at me !
PCMCIA card only cost me £350... The PCMCIA jacket £150, the ipaq £500.

What an idiot :rolleyes:

My laptop at £430, or technically my old £700 laptop - it's just not working any more.

If it has to be a single component, my 22" monitor at £100. As a penniless student, I don't believe in buying any component for more than £150 (+/- 10%, naturally) so I'm firmly entrenched in the mid-range segment :)

My 3007WFP-HC, i think it cost over £800 at the time but it was worth it and i can't ever imagine getting rid of it.
