Parts to build my gaming PC last year which amounted to about $1,100. If you're asking for a single item, it was probably my First Edition Bundle Vita for $300.

Things that I've bought, or things bought on my behalf? The most expensive thing that I've bought is a year of university for about 8 grand.

If I count paying over time then my Impreza but the most expensive all at once item was prob my PC for about 1400

#15 Posted by TobbRobb (5113 posts) -

If you count the my PC as one single entity, then that is by far the most expensive, but i put it together piece by piece, and I don't think any component was ever more expensive than my 360... That I can remember at least.

I guess each year of university for £3200, out of material goods its an Alienware Mx11, which needs to be repaired for the third time in two years :-( .

#23 Posted by UltorOscariot (218 posts) -

My wife and I were tired of having money, so we bought a house a few weeks ago. Renovating a kitchen mostly late 60's/early 70's kitchen and replacing 80's windows is a quick way to spend more still.

I bought a nice looking guitar back when i was a young adult for £500, its not the most expensive thing i ever bought considering my PC that i have was £700 but it was definitely my most frivolous expensive item, It looked good but it sounded like complete shit, I learned my lesson about being a hipster douchebag that day, just because something is hand made and from a small company doesnt mean its actually good. I thought i was the bees knees when i got it too.

Yeah...that' do it, what are you studying man? hope it's worth it

Yeah, i'm of the fence going down that road, I've got enough to either commit myself to getting a house and then being able to do it up and flick it off later with an increase in value, or, I can go on an OE, which is probably what I'm going to do, I've got around 25'000 dollars if I wanted to get a house and of that If I were to go on my OE for around 2 years I have 14k now with an aim to have at least 20k by this time next year

Biggest purchase I'd have made so far would be my 3rd car, 1st being a 1986 honda civic hatchback my dad gave to me, I had it for 3 months before it shat itself and wasn't worth repair,

Next car was a Holden (Vauxhall) Vectra (An absolute lemon of a car I was to find out)

And the Car I bought with trade of the Vectra with 6 grand his way so around about $10'000 at the time was a Mitsi Legnum the car from my avatar, I had to sell it 2 years later when I was made redundant and couldn't afford it anymore, that was back in 2008 I've had two cars since then with the one I'm driving now a legnum as well, but, it just ain't the same, which is a massive pity and a total waste of money....

My apartment. After that I guess my old Alienware laptop.

#31 Posted by Bell_End (1234 posts) -

i have an idea for your next thread... why not ask people what the last thing they bought was.

#32 Posted by Svenzon (807 posts) -

A computer for ~12 000 SEK.

#33 Posted by YoThatLimp (2047 posts) -

My Car at around $24K. Since I have a car payment, I don't know if it counts.

I think when I bought my TV is was around $1500? My IRS bill last year was 7K$, I technically bought my freedom?

I already have something else in mind. But thanks for the suggestion.

#35 Posted by psylah (2273 posts) -

I bought a project car to work on, for about 8k. It was running and needed some finishing engine work to have it running at 100%.

That was over a year ago and I haven't really had any work done on it since. Maybe I'll turn around and sell it.

About 1500 bones for an iMac last year.

Yeah having a house got to be expensive. The only way I see myself buying a house will only be to raise a family.

#47 Posted by RPGee (775 posts) -

Considering my age, it was my car. I didn't pay for all of it, but it was still $7000 out my own pocket, which was essentially all of my money bar a couple hundo.

#48 Posted by golguin (4537 posts) -

My car around 6 years ago for about $5,000. Basically bought it for school (had driven my parents' car) to do a one hour commute back and forth for those 6 years. I don't do such a long commute anymore so I hope it'll last me another good long while.

Quite a few ridiculously expensive things. Being a musician'll do that to you if you want anything quality. £1500 for one of the most beautiful sounding drum kits to ever grace my ears is probably the most expensive singular purchase I've ever made.
