How do I convince myself to just use the money I’ve saved up for a build and get one? I’m having trouble getting myself to do it. I’ve saved up $2k for a build but whenever I see other builds with better parts/higher prices, I tell myself that I should just save up more. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I feel like it’s a cycle that’s never going to end.

You can build a nice rig for right around $1K to $1.5K, and if it’s just for gaming that’s perfect. I wouldn’t spend much more than that.

And I’ll help convince you:

Remember your planned use. There will always be a better something around the corner, but unless it is going the significantly improve your user experience, than there is no point in worrying about it.
