Is your custom PC build ever truly finished?

Do you find yourself trying to finish your PC build? I finally get to build a new PC for myself, but find myself not satisfied until everything has been detailed. The stock SLI bridge drove me crazy, but at some point I need to stop! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egTMQS_-xFY

Better question is why would you ever want it to be finished? :D

Well most large corporations use a 3 year model for hardware refresh to the user desktop. They start planning the next refresh about the time the last people get their new gear (serious). So how can we ever be finished..? I do expect in the next few revs to be able to just say "Hey I said Blue lights and run CS:GO!" ;)

I'm a car guy who was always looking for new parts to modify my car with. Since my brother talked me into building a PC I find myself looking for more PC parts/peripherals I can add... even though I don't need them. A new hobby/passion is born and the battle for car parts vs pc parts has begun.

I actually finish builds very easily. In my case, what happens is that instead of continuously upgrading one machine, I end up building a lot of cheap hobby computers.

it's a crazy cycle, but I cant think of another hobby and community that teaches you so many different things.
