CPU: Core i9 -10850k
GPU: RTX 3080 10GB
Storage: 240GB SSD, 1TB HDD
RAM: 32 GB DDR4

Very very expensive...but saved a lot of money by building it on my own.
how much did you save? I had a look at pcs for a computer which matches the specs I wanted and they charge ~£200 more than the cost of components (albeit said computer is less specced than yours)

Oh geez now I have to remember it all.

I use two separate motherboards for XP and 98, since the XP isn't compatible, so I use the same case for both and just swap the motherboard.

Windows 98 CPU: Pentium II 450MHz + cooler

Windows 98 motherboard: MSI MS-6147

Windows 98 RAM: 2 x 512MB Kingston RAM @ 133MHz (no typos this time CosmicApathy1 )

Windows 98 GPU: The motherboard's ATI Rage Pro Turbo. I might get a Voodoo card or something.

Windows 98 sound card: None needed yet.

Windows 98 HDD: Quantum Fireball, I think 20GB (which is a LOT)

XP CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600

XP cooler: Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2

XP motherboard: ASUS P5N-E SLI

XP RAM: 4 x 1GB

XP GPU: 8800GT (512MB VRAM!)

XP HDD: I don't remember, 128GB maybe?

Case: Antec 660AMG

Fans: 2 little Cooler Master fans

PSU: Antec Earthwatts 500w

Drives: DVD, CD and floppy

I did a little gallery when I started it up:

I started getting the parts together for a new one, which I put together over Christmas.

Ryzen 3 3200G APU
Mortar Max
16Gb of DDR4 at 2666
256Gb M.2 drive
1Tb HDD
Be Quiet 550W PSU (I think)
I was using a TV, but the resolution made my eyes go funny and it kept making games defult to odd screensizes. There was a 22" Dell monitor on sale on Black Friday for £50, so I got that. 1080p, nothing special.

Unfortunately, all this coincided with the Great GPU Drought of 2020/21, so I don't have a graphics card currently, and there is no way I am buying a second hand one for more than retail. Fortunately, the 3200G is much much better than I could ever have expected and is getting me by at the moment.

How powerful is your computer? What specs do you run in your rigs? I want to know how serious your hardware game is. Mine isn't very serious:
CPU: Core i5-4690k
GPU: GTX 1060 6GB
Storage: 240GB SSD, 1TB HDD
RAM: 16GB DDR3
Hoping to get a 3090 real soon.
CPU - core i7-7700k
GPU - GT 710 (am about to upgrade to a 1060 when i save enough)
storage - 2tb hdd, 500gb ssd
RAM - 16gb ddr4
My CPU is watercooled (NZXT kraken of some format) and i have a CD drive and some firewire ports because sometimes it's nice to crack open a game from the 90s/early 2000s and have a go

Good enough for me, i mainly use my PC to mod skyrim and minecraft and maybe occasionaly bust out a yakuza game

May I ask why you splurged on water cooling at the expense of a decent graphics card?

I got the watercooler in a bundle with the cpu and motherboard and since the rest of the pc was made from parts of other computers and those were the only things I was lacking for my PC to be able to run, i decided to make it run first and wait until i had enough money to get a decent GPU.

In the end for the games i run most of them are heavily modded CPU and RAM intensive games but the graphics are still 2011 tier as even when running skyrim with an ENB, SMIM and a high def texture mod it stll runs fine

The exception is Yakuza, however i only got into the games after building my PC.
