I agree, but some have a budget for toys. He's probably not just getting back to work like you are.
lawndart is actually a billionaire who drives trucks as a hobby
. ok j/k actually he saves his change to buy his toys. I do the same thing. I'll think about buying something till i save the money to buy it. it ook me 2 years to get the computer upgraded to where i want it
. thing is patience and make sure you buy with the option to upgrade. last upgrade cost me about 200 bucks out of my pocket after selling my old parts. and I sold them for way less than what I bought them. but when i got my new parts i got them on sale and went to places like amazon for free shipping and no sales tax.
that's where the long term thing comes in, you buy what you can afford but the money you can afford spend it wisely with the option to upgrade later if it ever comes to it. if you were to buy an e6400 right now it would get you a good puter that will play ah really good. but you wont be able to sell it to finance your future upgrade. well of course future upgrades depends on finding a buyer too.
