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!!!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
