    Mine was - just - the ~ £270 I spent on an 8800 GTX back in January 2008, but it's a close run thing with the £265 I spent on a 15" TFT monitor in 2004. I think the next most I've spent on something personally is less than half that amount, and I've built whole computers for significantly less!

    Not sure this counts, but I remember spending around NZ$100 on the adapter/kempston joystick for the Spectrum 48k - spending my entire life savings up to that point on it. Blew it up y accident a week or two later by removing it without turning off the power. Bitter memory. Feel a tear coming...

    About £170 on a graphics card. I usually buy a mid range card when they drop below the £200 mark.

    Bought a pair of original Titans (EVGA) for SLi. Just over £900 each before the water cooling blocks. Still have them sat in my cupboard if anyone wants them!
