When I moved from the Amiga to the PC in late '94 I spent quite a few on that PC. Just the 16MB of RAM cost me the equivalent of $700. So I took a look at one of the local PC chains for a pre-made PC with about the same price. Not adjusted for inflation I could buy today: Core i7 3770K, 16GB RAM, GeForce 660 Ti, 120GB SSD + 2TB HDD, IPS 1080p monitor, decent gaming keyboard and mouse. Adjusted for inflation:Core i7 3930K, 16GB RAM, GeForce 680, 120GB SSD + 2TB HDD, two IPS monitors, decent gaming keyboard and mouse. Of course if I chose the components myself I'd choose differently, but then, I'd never spend that kind of money on a PC these days.
