Alden Richards recently took to Twitter to share his newly built gaming/streaming PC. The hashtag #AldenPautang then went trending.
The reason for the trending hashtag is because Alden’s gaming rig is worth a lot of money. And people from the twitterverse couldn’t help but admire that Alden has amassed a lot of money from his work that he can afford a Ferrari, Rolex, and this gaming rig. Below are some of the tweets:

We’ve checked various shops to check on these prices, as well as online PC stores, Lazada, Shopee, and Amazon. Note that the price on each component may vary from store to store.
