How much did you pay for your PC?

Would you mind telling me how you paid for your gaming PC/build? I grabbed a bargain from Curry's PC World and paid £649.99. The purchase is an gaming laptop made by, Acer. It was decreased by £199.99, no second thoughts, and it was a decent purchase on the off chance that you ask me.

I use a HP Omen 15". It features 8GB of memory, Intel® Core i7 processor, a 1TB hard drive, and NVIDIA 1050Ti. Quite a stable machine when gaming, my only concern is it gets very hot around the vent area. But I can live with that.

Mine is custom built too. I have paid pretty much decent amount of money. I may have to hold onto the future purchase in near time though. Because we never know how things may turn out to be. So I am going to wait and hold money before spending it on new games and may get upgrade for my PC.

I have a laptop, however, it is not a gaming laptop. I bought it for general purpose but I play games on this laptop. My laptop is an HP laptop and I paid equivalent to $500 in my home country.
 
I don't remember the exact amount, but it was worth around $1,250.00. Usually, I don't spend so much money on these things, but I wanted to buy something really good and spend a lot of time without buying another one again... Haha!

HP is not good for the gaming. It is often known for the overheating. So better to avoid getting such type of laptop if you are planning to get into gaming. Most of the time alienware and the Lenovo type of the laptops. It can be pretty interesting to check out how the low end of the laptops can be pretty bad for the system.

Hi, I assume most of us here have had built our own PC gaming rig. Now I wonder how much did you guys spent just to get your machine up and running?

Me? I only had a limited resources so I somehow managed to build a medium specs gaming rig which consist of 8gb HyperX Fury RAM, AMD A8-7650k processor, 500gb HDD, GTX 660 gpu, 600w true rated power supply and some decent add-ons for the cost of P23,000 (around $450). How about your rig?

I have invested more than 700$ USD into the PC and the mobile. And these days I am getting into streaming. So the investment is definitely more in terms of the spending. You can see that speeding up the PC requires more RAM and also for gaming you need the graphics card as well. I guess with time ahead I will end up making more purchases which will cost my setup more.

Cool! I don't see any problem with that since today's tech innovation is so fast you can only enjoy your new hardware/software in months before seeing a newer version. Keep building!

Yes kind of like changing every 2 months with graphics cards and the demand for the RAM. I am thinking of sticking with 12GB RAM and maybe only change the graphics card if required. I don't want to play any high end games anymore. It can be pretty much load on the system. So limiting my expenses on that.

Well I bought a prebuilt PC actually, so I didn't spend all too much time constructing it. I did spend installing and formatting the windows properly though.

I do not have a gaming PC, I have a laptop which I bought for $500 and use it for my work as well as watching movie and playing games.

I bet with lack of graphic card, you may be limited on what type of the games to play. And it can be pretty difficult with the type of games you can play out with it. I personally have found out that most of the modern games require expensive specs.

I got a few components of my PC as a gift for Christmas so I was part of the lucky crew here but If I did buy it all separately then it would've set me back around £7-800 but I think I only spent around £150 in all after getting the components gifted. Mainly on RAM and a case that I really wanted, then I just build the thing myself. Runs a lot better than my old rubbish computer I can tell you that!

I do have plans to have better components for PC and also wish to get one laptop which can have gaming capacity. I have plans for the 12 GB or more RAM for my laptop this year halloween if I save enough.
