    Me, i'm only partially there, but my current total is 2500. I have a Panasonic TH42PX60U Plasma, X360, Wii, PS2, a cheap Sony 400W stereo, a 6 foot HDMI cable (damn, these are expensive), and a 20 dollar VCR for my old Red Dwarf recordings, and i still have about 20 VHS tapes...
    I still need; a new entertainment center (mines really old, and made to sit a 32 inch tube inside, the plasma's on top of the center right now), a 7.1 surround system, and a receiver.

    list your rig if you like!!!

    My PC is my only real AV system, 1.1k for the box, nowadays probably about 600 for the laptop which acts as a downloader, partial encoder, server, manager, anywhere from free (ex police stuff is fantastic) to £200 for the monitors, would like to up that number to 4 monitors though although rewiring to get enough power will be a pain to pull off (uncomfortably close to 3000W as it is).

    Stuck with decent headphones/ throwaway stereo spreakers until I get some decent speakers though, thinking 5.1 as I have no 7.1 audio files.
    It does DVD and just about whatever I can make or download which is what I want, at this stage I could not care less for hd-dvd or blue ray (I still find it ironic that most HDTVs are DVD res and certainly most HD channels but that is a subject for a different day).

    Not had a VCR in about 7 years but I would go with a pro level one as restoration/ high quality captures would be of interest.

    As for red dwarf that is what DVDs are for, I realise though that this may be one of the only good times to be in an R2 country though.

    All in all I am pretty happy with what I have and with the exception of some speakers would not change a thing (well maybe for a massive screen)

    Red Dwarf FTW.
    I have every single episode ever.
    And for the record, my PC is my AV center. I'm 14 and I don't really have much cash..l.
