Love the computers you guys have.
My home PC started as a under $1000 build, in Feb. of 2010 (I was still a college intern). It has undergone a few upgrades along the years, with the major rebuild being in January 2013.

Original build equipment (Feb. 2010):
Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (fitted with 5 Antec cooling fans)
ASUS P7P55D EVO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor
ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Power Supply
2 x Hitachi 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
1 x LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM

2011 upgrades:
Second ATI Radeon HD 5750, using CrossFire
Upgrade to 8GB RAM

2012 upgrades:

2013 upgrades:
ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
A couple red LEDs for the case

I definitely need to work on some cable management though. My case is not nearly as clean as the ones I've seen on this thread.
