    You've spent as much money on a pc that others spend on a car.
    Use less money the next time and you won't feel so bad.

      Used car price is negligible in the face of running costs:
      >tax+insurance: $2K
      >gas: $2,5K
      >repairs: $1,5K
      The scrap you pay for the used rustbucket is only a token

      for a non-deathtrap car, prices START at 10k+. get real. spending 2k on a pc is unironic mid-tier. 10k for a pc will get you well into enterprise gear.

      2k is chump change dude. but i have even worse news for you. 20k is chump change too. infact the chumpery continues until you start talking about six figures.
      the sad corollary of this is that, you salary is most likely chump change. your taxes, which feel so burdensome, are chump change.
      its a world of chumps.

      dont penny pinch, buy the PC and do some awesome shit on it. a fast pc will objectively open opportunities that others dont have, e.g. videoediting, doing big boy software stuff, entry level AI stuff, etc.

    you are experiencing anxiety from spending money
    if you consider it in terms of euros per hour, it will probably come out to fractions of fractions of a euro
    which is much easier to reason about

    2300 euro is far past the price-performance sweet spot. You spent too much.

    Most money is wasted on unnecessary things. It's okay.

    It's because you are not used to spend money. You are still very young. When I was your age, I used to feel the same. A pack of candy was the most I could spend. As you grow up, you will be forced to spend money and you will start to feel at ease with it, unless you become greedy.

    More than that, I now give very little importance to my money, even compared to the average person, because I have really felt how short, uncertain and ridiculous life is due to my recent experiences.

        Gold is not for increasing value, but guarding your wealth against devaluing currency. Index funds are for growing your money

    Just take it as a lesson for next time dont spend money on stupid shit you dont need, remember that it didnt make you happy.
    I did the same recently, i played with it for exactly one week and now its collecting dust or used for leetcode and web browsing which i could do with 1/4 the price
    This is a message to everyone reading: do not buy a gaming pc, instead get a dell linux laptop or a Thinkpad thats all you need to have fun on the internet, gaming is not as fun as it used to be

      Lol. I don't get this. I can have shit everything, but my PC must at least be decent. I use it hours everyday. If I want to try some new game I don't want the PC to stop me from enjoying it.

    You overspent on the motherboard, you should have got the cheapest one that supports all the features you plan to have in your build.
    On the SSD too (I paid 180 € for a 4 TB one last year).
    Overall, great build, it will last for at least 15 years if you don't mind not receiving driver updates, though you might consider some upgrades 5 years from now, like the monitor.

    Keep this feeling with you forever. Buying things won't make you a better person.

    I wouldn't buy a expensive PC these days, all games I can care about already run on my 5 year old PC. Maybe I'll upgrade in 2026/27 to run Monster Hunter Wilds and GTA VI, but I wonder if it's worth to pay at least 1k to play 2 games.
