    Until he thinks about all of the other garbage he wasted money on instead of a replacement over the same two years :p

    But looking back through his threads he hardly bought any of that stuff, just the CPU cooler!

    I'm really surprised too. I honestly thought it would have caught on fire or violently exploded by now, but like an old Civic it keeps on truckin' along! ;) Plus I never shut off the PC, I keep it on 24/7 and I use TeamViewer to remotely play Fallout 4 from my schools computer lab sometimes :D

    Yeah, the only things I've actually gone through with are the new CPU cooler, new RAM, and replacing some bad fans.

    Yeah, but unlike a Civic your power supply isn't manufactured using a perfect Japanese manufacturing technique and it certainly doesn't feature a VTEC engine which means that one day it will die. I don't think Civics die as easily as this PSU seems to have. :p I'm not trying to encourage you to keep going with it, I'm just trying to point that you've had these issues for nearly 2 years now, thought you may have replaced by it now? ;)

    I was thinking more along the lines of old VCRs, radios in computers, etc. ;)

    This. It's the non-computer crap he wastes his money on.

    I do have an old JVC VCR that I use daily to record shows. LOL

    and I've stopped my dumb spending too. I've been concentrating solely on saving for a few months now.

    You should get a DVR.

    I have my gaming PC's TV tuner card plugged into my room's cable jack and I DVR with that.

    No, he should get a power supply.

    Don't even eat until you have a new power supply. Clothes got holes in them? Tough! Power supply comes first! :D

    And I don't think he ever bought that radio.
