Every time someone describes their PC as 'My rig'? :)

    I agree, never got the rig thing, its generally just called my computer or PC.

    It's an old and widely used term. Language evolves, so just embrace it!

    Some people build the PC's and upgrade it piece meal. They also over clock memory and CPU. That's why I thought people called it their rig. I build mine up, though I don't call it a rig I can see why someone would.

    My PC is very much piece meal as parts have been swapped at different times I would say this PC is 10 years old but not a single part remains from the original spec but I have never started again.
