I don't usually spend much becasue i'm too young to buy stuff off the net and all my local game shops specialise in PS2, Xbox etc and don't really sell add-ons except the odd one or two, in which case i'll usually buy them. So I usually spend about 25 twice a year on payware. For the rest I depend on freeware, which isn't too bad if you know where to look Wink

I suppose that my figure of add-ons, upgrades etc, is small compared to some, around 500. Thats mostly payware aircraft/ scenery and a recent graphics card upgrade. Wink

Probably nearing $400, though it seems the more I buy the more unreliable my FS becomes.

These where Birthday gifts so they don't count.

I have spent around 300 in add-ons so far.
