4. How much money did you spend on the rig as it is right now?
So far I had spent close to 8 - 10k USD for the whole setup (Including the CPU/WC/Audio/LCD).
5. How often do you update/buy a new rig?
I update my rig pretty often. Especially GPUs as I am always after lag free/high FPS gaming experience.
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
