For me, it was growing up not having enough money to get a computer.  Collecting 
old stuff was almost the only way I could have a computer for a long time.

Then in college it was partly how I managed to get things I needed.

After collect, it was how I got servers running at home to do work my PC 
couldn't handle.

My collecting has thus usually been much more pragmatic than others.  I rarely 
get things I won't use for at least a little while.

Lately I've been more into things I don't need.
