4. How much money did you spend on the rig as it is right now?
This is a hard one. I haven’t really kept a record, I’m not sure I even want to know. A good guess would be around 2000-3000€, but some of the parts are getting old and as we all know computer parts depreciate fast, so building an identical computer now would probably be a lot less. Still in the end I am very happy spending money on things I love doing.
5. How often do you update/buy a new rig?
The previous computer I built was back in 2008. It was a Q6600 paired with two Nvidia 8800GT. In September 2011 I upgraded to a 2500K paired with some G.Skill ram on an Asus P8Z68. In August this year i upgraded to a 3570K and an Asus Maximus Gene-V. It seems like I am more into modding/building than using the computer. I used to work on cars a lot but working on computers are more fun and less expensive. So how often i will upgrade in the future is hard to say but i'm guessing every year more or less.

Guru3D Rig of the Month - March 2013
The Guru3D Rig of the Month March 2013 - Though I'm sure many will love it it remains to be one of these hate/love builds. We think it's impressive alright and the craftsmanship is just excellent. meet Conrad Yeo Kai Kee, at the age of 33 he build this creature and named it Project Rampage. This actually is his first first ever attempt in modding and also water cooling of rigs. Lots of time is spent in reading and sourcing out items needed for the build. Have a look and be amazed.
