Why would you eat at Arby's to begin with?

That is a very good question. It's the closest thing to me and I have no food in my house right now so I thought I'd get something quick before work. I haven't been to one in quite a while so I thought I'd try it again, big mistake, now I'm still hungry, oh well...

Discounting the textbooks I bought like two days ago (because those are no fun :lol: ), I got myself the new Opeth cd the day after it came out. I've been waiting for that record to come out for months and it's soooo good :awesome:

The "cold" faucet lever that I'm getting ready to use as the doorknob for the bathroom door cause the narrow case rimlock I'm using is too close to the door frame so a regular doorknob smacks the door frame on one side of the door. I love being a single guy living alone in his own house. There's shit you just can't get away with under different circumstances, doing this is one of those things.

The feeling of getting the new computer (or parts for the computer, if you're the custom-build type) is so amazing. :')

What are the specs? :)

It is! I just got my laptop a bit over a year ago and already crave a new one because technology marches on so quickly, even though I spent far more than I should have on getting a 1920x1080 19'' screen, 2TB of hard drives and a never-used Bluray drive - that was before I decide to just start downloaded Bluray images. :lol:

Ha! Computer envy is such a beast. XD

I don't think anyone sticks to their budget when buying new computers or components, to be honest.

Right, I am not going to spend any more than £500. £750 tops.

I just update my computer periodically. My last purchase was a $200 graphics card. I'll replace the memory next.

I just bought a vintage pair of aluminum explosion proof lights for my bathroom. I've been using these two for the past year and a half

Which are the right style for what I wanted in the bathroom but not nice enough for what the rooms going to look like when its finally done. So I'm going to take those two down and install them outside as my front door lights instead and replace them with these:

I'm thrilled that someone finally scrapped another old ship that had aluminum fixtures instead of the more standard brass, I've been waiting for about a year for another batch of these to show up on Ebay from one of the dealers of parts that come from the breaker yards.

I recently upgraded my computer to a "Devil's Canyon" i7-4790K; including the new motherboard (Asus Z97-A), it only cost £339, and the integrated graphics are now good enough to where I don't need a discrete graphics card any more.

Brenden used my old parts (i7-2600K, Asus P8Z68-V LX motherboard, MSI GTX 670 graphics card), to build a gaming computer, and the amazing thing is that the graphics I'm getting in Linux are actually much smoother than with the GTX 670 thanks to the much better Intel open-source drivers compared with even the proprietary Nvidia drivers, and that the power savings will eventually pay for the entire upgrade plus Brenden's new case and suchlike (since I use my computer all the time and the new processor and integrated graphics are far more energy-efficient). :D

Spending £1000 on a computer seems absolutely insane! You can build a state-of-the-art computer for not much more than £500 if you just do some research to find out where you can get the parts cheapest (which usually means ordering from a few different places).

I was exaggerating a bit, but that's some pretty awesome skills right there to build a computer with those specs at such a low price. :O

Since I have yet to dip my toes into the whole custom building thing, could you be so kind as to point me in the right sort of direction so that when I need to upgrade I can take a stab at really making it my own? :)

My dad taught me when I was little in the early 90s, but it's easier now with websites like PCPartPicker which let you find parts that'll work together and suggest where they might be found cheaply.

After picking the parts I want, I check if I can find them for any better prices elsewhere and put all the information in a spreadsheet, like this:

PC parts spreadsheet.png

In this case, I found that all the parts we were buying could be acquired for £584.18 with free shipping, rather than £614.68 (including shipping charges) as suggested by PCPartPicker.

I got a Z97-chipset motherboard because I like the features and how future-proof it is, and I got the latest fastest i7 CPU because I need to use some software professionally that was unfortunately written in Java and runs quite sluggishly even on the fastest computers you can build today, but most people could easily do without these things and get all the essential parts for around £400.

If you play graphics-intensive games, you can add a superb graphics card for less than £200 (our MSI GTX 670 with 2 GB GDDR5 memory is pretty awesome and only cost £180) and have a great computer for gaming for no more than £600.

It's important to read reviews from proper review sites for all the parts you choose, and not to skimp on things like the motherboard or power supply. If you get a cheap power supply, it might not actually provide anywhere near as much power as it claims, and if it fails, it could take all your other expensive parts with it. As for motherboards, I've been really happy with the ones I've had that were made by Asus, particularly their BIOSes and build quality, and I would always pay a little more to get an Asus motherboard as opposed to, for example, an ASRock.
