    Nope. Maybe if my E5200 dies it is a nice sample :D. I would not care less for other stuff I have.

    After a (relatively) long thought, I will only feel sad if my HDD die, all the data lost!:cry:

    Other than that, I can get over it.

    I only get sad when I know the warranty for my broken part is expired, but other than that I actually get kinda happy [yet a bit annoyed] when something breaks, knowing that I will get a brand new replacement later, its also a great wake up call to upgrade some of your other parts.

    My MB just died 2 days ago, but now im waiting for a new MB and a new Video card ^_^

    So far I've been happy. You know when your stuff is old and you really want to upgrade and but the stuff you have does everything you want it to without a hitch.. Then you look for errors. :D

    Now selling stuff.. That breaks my heart. :(

    Cool that you didn't lose everything, but damn, losing a new x58 motherboard,CPU and the RAM really does suck balls. What happened?

    If its just recently bought and I voided my warranty, I would get so pissed I'd smash the TV, followed by crying about the fact I now need to replace my new hardware as-well as buy another TV.

    Other then that, if a HDD went crap on me and I had all my valuable pr0n on it I'd go bonkers.

    I havent had many parts die (touchwood :slap:) though if it means downtime from my main rig then its a big pita, if its a hdd or something, no biggie, use another and rma, I went without a mobo a few months back, 3 weeks I waited in all cause the 2nd they sent me was doa :cry:

    I don't feel as sad as I did a few years back.. Only because my downtime won't be 4-6m like it was then.. lol

    I get depressed for a bit, especially if I have to replace something and it cuts into my saving funds for my house or if I was saving for another unnecessary gadget/parts for bike or truck.

    The worst feeling is unintentionally destroying a piece of hardware and voiding your warranty in the process.

    i'm sad that the 5850 i have here seems to be dead because that means no comparison scores for future reviews

    only when it's clearly my fault (rushing things) then i am pissed, otherwise i find someone else to blame :p

    It's annoying but i can live with it now, since i have a netbook as secondary system. So i can listen to music, download stuff and check e-mails.

    I get annoyed. I only get sad when I have to sell my hardware.
