    I use two 2004 Dell Pentium 4s (3.2Ghz and 3.8Ghz) every day and have since 2004. I did upgrade the graphics cards in 2009 and the 5V batteries in 2010. Otherwise they are unchanged and work perfectly as they did in 2004. I have an IBM Thinkpad I bought in 1999 with Windows 98 SE on it which I use for old school PC gaming. The battery died back in 2004, but every part of it works as well as it did 20 years ago and nothing has been replaced. I also have a 1982 original IBM PC that still boots into DOS 2.10 and hasn't ever had a single component or capacitor replaced. I have devices all over my home that are probably older than you are that I haven't replaced a single component on, nor have I ever spent even half of $100 on a GPU, and I haven't had these problems. Maybe I've been lucky since the 1980s, but properly made electronics should work for decades, not years.

    Only tangentially gaming related I know, but at least it's OC.

    So you are saying that you have ALL your devices running 24/7 for 10 years each (which is what I mean by "lasts 10 years", as in 86000 HOURS of running and that's often on more than idle/medium load, if you don't stress the components they last even longer). I, for one, do stress my components a LOT, often running them at 90% usage for about 20 hours a day, so even the slightest longevity/performance loss affects me a lot. Otherwise your post is completely irrelevant because there are SO many variables for part longevity you literally can't fit them in just one book... But by all means, go ahead and buy all used PSUs for your devices and use those instead if you are so sure, unless you are just full of crap:P

    Cloud storage is fine sometimes if you can't afford normal HDDs or have a server built, OneDrive though I agree, you have to be quite the masochist to use such outdated options...

    Are HDD's even expensive anymore? Didn't they massively drop in price because of the increased affordability from SSD?

    For some they are expensive honestly or they already have too many to manage them. Also, cloud doesn't run stupid risks like data corruption since they don't keep it physically, meaning as long as it's a reliable cloud then you don't have much to worry about.

    This isn't mine (obviously), but this needs more attention. Gamer swag.
