PC hardware can often elicit a love-hate relationship. Some components will prove to be more hassle than they're worth, others will go above and beyond, and in the modern world of frequent software updates, it's not uncommon for hardware to go from good to bad and back again.

What makes a piece of kit truly memorable? Performance might have blown your mind, maybe reliability has exceeded all expectations, or perhaps you managed to find an incredible deal. It's very much a personal thing so for this week's question we're asking; what is your favourite component of all time? Let us know what, and why, using the comments facility below.

My first 3d card, the Videologic Apocalypse 3dx - there's been no one thing that revolutionised gaming that come close to the transition from no 3d-card to 3d-card
Either my first hard drive (40MB was a lot in those days) or my first 14400 baud modem.
Sinclair ZX Thermal Printer.
Toward the end of my time using a conventional mouse, mouse use was causing me more and more wrist pain. Switching to a vertical mouse made such a difference, i.e. no pain at all, that my first Evoluent vertical mouse has to be my favourite device.
Probably my Logitach MX Air mouse. It can be used as both a normal or gyroscopic mouse, or like a Wii remote. Perfect for my HTPC. Pretty happy I still have it as I remain disappointed that there Logitech never made a 2nd version that would work with their unifying receiver.
