    other than a PSU 2 years ago for £45 ish, a 250gb SSD for £70 and a case in 2009 for about £60(?) everything else has devalued to the point where its only tangible worth is to me, because its my working PC.
    I'm not counting the GPU because that was free.


    I'm going to go with the £7 CAT6 cable plugged into the £20 GS308 that I got for christmas

    Water cooling system costs almost half as much as everything else combined. At best I might get a few FPS more from less thermal throttling and it's nearly impossible to sell used

    Excluding the monitor, my GTX980 I bought a few years ago. GPU is always usually my most expensive component.
