So earlier this evening, actually about two hours ago, I ordered a 500GB HDD for the PS3-slim I just purchased tonight on my way home from work. Had a $10 off coupon in my email for the drive :beer:

I got to looking around at my order history and noticed that I have a five page history of stuff that I've ordered from Newegg since 2002! So I wondered, what was the first thing I purchased from them.

And this was my answer:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151011
1 x SAMSUNG Ivory IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model SD-616 - OEM

Cost? $48.

Then I got to doing a rough calculation and figure I've given Newegg close to 5 grand since that first order. :eek:

That doesnt count my old 'business' ID or Tigerdirect, or Zipzoomfly, or Petra's, or Microcenter. I would bet between all of them, personal and business its pushing $30k.

Laptop ram for my gf's laptop, and more ram for my mom's laptop, back in 2008.
Previously i had a different newegg account, so all the 5x86 cpus and socket7 mobos aren't there.

The first thing I purchased from newegg was an All-in-Wonder 8500DV from their refurbished section, which didn't work. I sent it back, got a refund, and bought a Geforce 4200-Ti. The total since 2003 is a little over $4k.

I think I have that hardrive in an enclosure somewhere now, and I probably gave the modem away years ago. I'm also on 10 pages of order history.
