Tell us about your spending habits for xmas
The majority of my money is being saved to pay for more college classes, so i really don't have money to spend on hardware and i probably won't for a while.
So i picked the ''No, I buy new hardware whenever I want'' option, even though it's not very accurate for me.
But every Christmas i usually do try a get myself a little something, this year i might delay that till early next year if i have money left.
nope not all the time however last year i did purchase a samsung syncmaster 24" hd screen and this year i think im for a wee 560ti to retire my aging by the minute 9600gt so yeah would be the xmas money/coupons options for me
I picked, Yes, I buy with Xmas money/coupons I get as i am doing some xmas work this year so i will gift myself some nice stuff.
I replied Yes, I gift myself an upgrade, because of the upgrade I've just got myself. Normally, I buy stuff whenever I want. My PC was almost three years old (graphics card excepted) and it's time.
yeh same ere qubit except its too late for me most of my pc just died so im forced to buy new mobo cpu and mem for christmass damn
xmass my arse itll be runnin 1day aft payday 21st
Usually I upgrade once in one or two months but most of it are trades and not real buys!
Two days ago I traded my X4 965 for 1090T + some CASH...it was a quick deal not that I need it!
I answered No,I buy whenever I...... because the only component I can't resist are VGA's,I BUY them whenever a new decent one comes out...
I gift myself hardware, ask for them specifically as gifts, and buy them whenever i want or need them within the year.
Such as just 2 days ago i ordered a new case, for christmas i asked for a new keyboard and sound card, and within this year i upgraded to sandy bridge
For me Christmas is not an opportunity to buy new hardware, I probably will buy a gift (a headset, a new mouse) to my niece...
I voted "No". Not only because I buy whenever I like (or more like, whenever I have the money to do so), but also because I don't buy hardware on christmas time. Prices are jacked up and it's really hard to find a good deal.
Just buy whenever I want, I have never had a hardware gift in my life, it would be pointless.
I mean, presents are meant to be a surprise so you cant go asking for stuff, coupons are viewed kind of impersonal in my family/friends so I never get them either.
Imagine your sitting running a intel processor, Christmas morning and you open up a AMD x4... great thought by the buyer but really not much use.
Nope, I upgrade when a new game I deem worthy is released and requires more power
EDIT: diddnt vote because its a front page poll and pain in the ass to go there to vote instead of being in the thread... sorry being honest here
EDIT 2: ok fine i clicked on the link and voted, that wasnt so bad now was it
I upgraded a few minor things in my wife's and kids' computers. Anything major is usually planned around income tax return time in March.
I bought my wife an Andriod tablet for an early present. She loves it. It is a 10" Le Pan.
there needs to be an option that says "no, i buy hardware whenever i can afford it" b/c theres a lot i want, but cant afford lol
"Yes, I gift myself an upgrade"
I found a Evga GTX470 for a bargain, it will "look" nice for a 3WaySLi and also will get 1 Corsair ForceGT 120GB.
Yes, I gift myself an upgrade
I will replace motherboard CPU and RAM.
i gifted myself a HD 6870 this morning
nope but a friend of my does and a friend from his does, and i'm building those babies
Where's the "My PC and I are not into magic and fairies" option?
I gift myself hardware whenever I damn well please. So I voted "Ill be happy with whatever I get". I don't expect gifts from anyone, so its always a nice surprise if somebody does gift me something.
I do tend to use Christmas/my birthday as an excuse to buy expensive stuff I always wanted. But computer hardware is not on the list this year as I'm totally happy with my current setup.
Well... maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe a new HDD.
Do you have a sleeve fetish....
I only up upgrade When i find good deals on p.c. part,s on e.bay,
This year iv only got from e.bay was
1 samsung 19 ich screen was 30 pounds
2 9600 gt pci-e only 15 pounds
3 some old crap 3400+ desktop pc only 20 pounds..
Never upgrade much On Xmas time saying all my cash gose,s on Alcohol,
I'll be happy with whatever I get. Honestly I didn't want anything this year. "want" and "need" are two different things. I asked for nothing or to donate to a charity.
Why because every cable in my PC is sleeved?
