Default Help Me Decide!

So I have decided to spend about $1500 on something for myself because anything I have purchased up to this point has been out of necessity (for the most part).

I have narrowed it down to the options in my poll and plan on buying in about a months time.

Depends on what you already have.

(Also, donating $500 dollars to a charity isn't a bad idea. You still get to treat yourself very well, while making the lives of people in unfortunate situations quite a bit better.)

It's not selfless nor selfish; if I had to explain, this would be PR'd.

Dude, it depends on your current circumstances.

Whats the worst of the 3? Which would you appreciate and use the most? I dont know which car you drive, but some of the newer cars have stock sound systems which beat a $1000 headunit/sub/amp set up of custom ICE packages. And they aint even premium.

But am assuming you have a cassette player with a pair of front speakers so I voted the car stereo

More likely than not, my pc is the slowest of all rage users. I bought it in 2002 when ut2003 came out so I could play it with high detail and decent frame rates. P4 2.53, 9700pro, 1G ddr533. I don't use my pc for anything but web browsing and messaging anymore and I spend 3hrs a day in my car so I figured a nice stereo would be a good idea.
