I just built a PC for my 11-year old daughter, and it's faster than my own gaming system. What the hell was I thinking?  Huh

Tell me about it. I bought my mom a GTX 660 for 100€ to replace her old dead card, damn thing flies.

Can get great bang for buck these days.

RAM and CPU are certainly very cheap these days. I remember when we used to sell a 64MB stick of 100MHz RAM for $270. If you spent that much on RAM nowadays you'd run out of slots on the MOBO. As for GPU, the last time I bought one I bought two and SLI'd them. I'm using two GTX560's at the moment, and I'm looking at getting two cheap GTX670's next, as they should drop in price when Nvidia release their next generation (apparently their next GPU is overdue, the predicted launch date having already lapsed).

I recently got a HD 7790 2 GB Overclock edition over here in the UK for £50.. I couldn't believe it. This thing is great compared to my old card Smiley
