    I apologize for the spelling and other mistakes in the poll, but it's the third time I had to rewrite it.

    Since it was year end I was looking at my expenses for the current year, and since I was also bored I calculated how much I spent on games, peripherals, and hardware (I don't save reciepts except on Hardware so thier all estimates, pretty accurate however).

    In order of purchase
    NOLF: $45
    Europa Universalis: $40
    NHL 2000: $10
    Age of Empires (gold):$20
    Deus Ex: $25
    Shogun Total War: $22
    Hardware Upgrade (Mobo, Athlon 1.2, DDR ram): $270
    Heretic 2: $5
    UT (my own copy had been using my bro's): $5
    Gamepad: $15
    Sea Dogs: $25
    The Corporate Machine: $20
    Age of Wonders: $5
    Joystick: $30
    Red Baron 3D: $12
    Giants: $18
    Tiger Woods 2000: $20
    Civ3 LE: $55
    Alice: $20

    Bringing the grand total to: $662
    Which is about $100 more than I expected. So I was wondering what I every one else spends. If you bought a lot of new hardware this year; I'd recomend amortizing it. Meaning if you bought a $1000 system and expect to replace it in 3 years, divide the 1000 by three. I didn't amortize my purchase since I tend to spend about $300 a year on upgrades. Of course you could just estimate what you spent. So how hardcore are you?

    I wish I could say this was for a class but it's not I'm just a geek
