4. How much money did you spend on the rig as it is right now?
Due to the lack of money I re used most of my old hardware from a previous mod named Project White. I did make a small change with the memory; the previous modules where blue and wouldn't fit with the new theme color of the case. In total I have spend around 400€ or the case, reservoir, fans, fittings, paint and some other small items.
5. How often do you update/buy a new rig?
I try to update whenever it is necessary for optimal use. The hardware that I use is still good enough for all the games that I play.
6. What components are used?
I am using the following components. List is pretty long for my WC components as the parts are not readily available in my country, so I had ordered a lot more than what I required.
