    I just bought a Lian Li PC-60 aluminium case without a power supply for A$250.00 or around US$500.00.

    A lot for a case but gee, looks good. :)

    ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon video card, dont remember exactly what I paid for it (got it when it first came out) but it was a little more than I paid for the ASUS A7V266-E motherboard.

    I've somehow managed to pick up everything in my system for >$250...

    Umm... I guess the most expensive thing was my sound system, got it when it first came out, and it was $250 or so (everything else has been less)...

    Probably my Creative Geforce 2 GTS. I brought it after it came out for £250 :)

    Hmm... I guess I would have to say my Motherboard... I paid $200 for it... its an ASUS board... and the processor is an AMD Duron 800MHz.

    I got my 17" monitor as a gift... and all the other parts I got from various computer shows... I just keep upgrading SOMETHING everytime I go... It's dangerous.. I just keep on spending it!

    I cheat and upgrade via Gothic, so as an example I bought an XP chip, he had my 1.2 athlon, makes for cheap upgrades !!!

    But my most expensive ( if this is allowed under the rules ( does anyone know the rules ? :) )) is my PDA at about £160

    Nicked my monitor from teh UK army, so my most expensive piece of kit has to be my HDD, which is only a 40 gig UDMA100, but my system is dated.

    Won't be long before my dented case is teh most expensive bit of kit!!!
