He spends tons of money on an overly expensive computer so that he can 'save' money on cheap games on the steam summer sale. Also, ETWare = AlienWare

These are my specs. Video card has 64MB dedicated video RAM as opposed to the usual 1GB or 2GB in gaming computers.
I also have 150kB/s Internet.

The fact I can run games like Oblivion and Fallout 3 on medium settings without lag ******* baffles me.

video memory doesn't have as much of an effect on performance as people may think. My laptop only has 2gb of VRAM, yet is as powerful or more as ones with 3-4gb. Its more about cores and clockspeeds. Thats pretty impressive though haha

I laugh at people who spend $1000+ on ANY computer (unless it's a workstation computer for rendering or something). My computer cost $400 (on black friday, although it only saved me $40-50) to build and I can play anything on high-max settings.

Which is why I don't play PC games because I come from a lower-middle class family and the best we can afford is a secondhand $30 laptop which freezes periodically.   
   
But at least it can run FJ.

This is the biggest problem I have with PC gaming. If I want to play Xbox or Playstation games, I can head down to Cash Generator or go on Ebay and get a 3 year old console for a small amount of money and use it for another decade if I'm careful. If I want to play PC games I have to get a brand new laptop or computer for hundreds and replace it every couple of years.

One other point I feel I must add to this tangent of the discussion. More often than not you can just upgrade the video card every few years instead of the whole system and should maintain good performance in the newer games.

I feel really bad for somebody that spends more than 1200 on a PC

I spent $1400 on mine 3 1/2 years ago. The only thing I changed was my video card and ram but I am capable of playing every new game that comes out on high or very high settings.

Bought an i7 920 x58 ($250 mobo and $300 cpu, $300 something vcard don't remember). Now I'm on an i7 970x (I got it for a steal @ $200) with an 660 ti 3gb. So now my pc probably cost me $1800 over the course of 4 years. I have 18gb of ram... only because I bought the best ram available at the time (x58 is trip channel aka 3 ram chips vs 2) and it holds 6 of em. 2+2+2 and 4+4+4

I'm happy with my busted, 2-3 year old laptop.

It can run Dark Souls with a small amount of lag.
