What is the most amount of money you've spent on a computer or computer-related item?

Well, in 1986, I paid something like $6700 for a KA630-AA 
(UVax-II CPU board).
I got an Andromeda disk controller (MFM hard disk + floppy) 
and ran pirated VMS off a 40 MB drive.  Slowly upgraded it 
all to a VaxStation II, then VaxStation II GPX (color 
graphics), added a bunch of tape drives.

I kept it running until 2007, when the hard drive croaked.  
By that time I had a cast-off SCSI 4 GB drive.
