Gaming (shooters), Photoshop, Web Design, Home Theatrics, Video Editing, and basically anything I can find use of it for!
4. How much money did you spend on the rig as it is right now?
Probably a little over $2,800.00 if you add it all up (Yikes,?I know).
5. How often do you update/buy a new rig?
I tend to update about every 6-months (this has become quite the addiction!).
6. What components are used?
Intel Core2 Quad Q9650 over clocked to 4.2GHz
BFG Geforce GTX 295 over clocked to 684/1380/2238MHz
eVGA 790i FTW Motherboard

7. Why ATI or NVIDIA, why Intel/AMD?
NVIDIA has always been my first choice, because of the graphics quality and performance that their products offer. I chose Intel, because of the immense cache and over clocking abilities their processors offer, not to mention with great temperatures even at speeds over 4.0GHz.
