    £286 on a GTX 970. I can't justify too much expense and as a gamer the gpu is of course the best place to spend.

    Nvidia 8800 Ultra, I think it was about £500. I refuse to go that mad again even though it ran Crysis flawlessly with my Q6600.

    With these DDR prices, I'd only say: A FRICKIN' LOT!

    Re: QOTW: What's the most you've spent on a single PC component?

    $1100 on a Viewsonic Pxxx (can't remember anymore...LOL) back ~1997 or so I think and about the same for a mitsubishi diamondtron monitor (both for cad/proe testing and testing vid card 20 packs). Other than that Dell 24 2407WFP-HC ($650 or so). It would seem my most expensive parts are always monitors. Never more than $500 (ok $510 for 1070ti) for any other part. I'm happy letting rich people fund R&D Thank god for them or guys like Potbellieddwarf funding Titan's so the rest of us can get the same thing a year later instead of 3-4yrs later Thanks man.

    Not to say I'm dogging those people either, if I was making more money I'd buy a titan every freaking year or maybe two-four! Just not reasonable on my budget, nor is it needed. My EYES though, are massively important. I've already had lasik, so I don't want a crap monitor making me blind again As a person growing up on monochrome, amber, green crap monitors (took years before we had color monitors back ~1982) for apple //e etc, I can tell YOUNGER people, PAY FOR A GREAT MONITOR! Or, hope you have $5k for a good lasik doctor in a decade or two ($299 per eye...LOL no way you'd touch my eyes for that). My whole family had to do this after decades of looking at rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishe monitors. I'd rather have another Dell 27/30in that doesn't have freesync/gsync (I'm stuck with a future gsync or bust for now for next monitor), rather than a crap monitor having either of these and suffering my eyes degrading over time. Got a Radeon RMA coming that maybe will have freesync so I'll perhaps have a monitor choice both ways.

    PLEASE LISTEN young people. Not being able to read signs on the road sucks, and glasses suck too! $89 24in? You get what you pay for! My dell 24 has been running happily for ~10yrs Still looks as good as the day I bought it! 1920x1200 too When you figure how long a great monitor lasts, it's worth every penny. I'd pay $1200 for a dell 30in with gsync 16:10! I'm sure they'd sell like mad too with all the pent up 16:10 demand that people want to browse etc. Web sucks today on these short monitors - just saying.

    About $900 (purchased in PLN, though) for a 1080Ti. Pity is I moved most of my gaming to Nintendo Switch just a couple of months later. It's still there, though, and I've got some AAA games to play on it, just don't have the time right now.

    I spent a little over $2,000 dollars on two Titan X cards a few years ago (one per PC).

    £680 for an Acer XB271HU screen. Monitors are a long-term investment, so no regrets about this one

    £345 on a Sapphire VaporX 7970GHz, 5 years ago. I'm trying to update it, but now is not possible. I'll wait a few months for a more stable prices.

    I totally forgot my rift, that would have to be the single most expensive PC component I've bought - I paid the full price literally 2 weeks before the first price drop happened.

    Re: QOTW: What's the most you've spent on a single PC component?

    Pre-ordered the Samsung 960 Pro 1TB when it first came out, cost a hefty £600+. Never order kit that's new on the market, I know, but I couldn't resist it.

    $2500 for a X286, 4mb memory and a 210mbHD.
    I had more computer than the company I worked for did. They were still swapping floppies.
    I got them to finance it.
