Description

  • I've recently transitioned from console gaming (this generation bored me a bit) and plunged into the PC world. Between the FPS hike, maneuverability with a mouse, and the awesomeness of customization within builds, I decided to throw my first one together. Went with a black and white color scheme.

  • This case is beautiful but was damn difficult to maneuver. I have pretty big hands so this was by no means a simple task - probably should have gone with a mid tower considering it was my first build, but I ultimately wanted to have something more compact. Well worth it in the end.

  • Have always been an Intel guy, but I decided to run with AMD after researching the multiprocessing capabilities - I intend to use this for gaming (67%) as well as work (33%).

  • As for gaming, I enjoy playing League of Legends, CS:GO, Gears 5, and Destiny 2 currently.

  • Also my first time using an ultra-wide, and I'm impressed thus far. I'm used to a dual monitor setup for work, but this is extremely immersive (even when non-gaming). Definitely recommend it for those who are on the fence.

Much appreciated - can't beat the Corsair RGB's!

Mainly due to how significantly cheaper it has gotten over time (now under $200) - but also the volume of cores and threads for heavy workloads if I'm multitasking. Seemed like a good starting point for my first build.

Mainly used for work purposes: local development (VS Code and a gamut of text editors), general file storage (typically a ton of data files for work - I do a lot of big data migrations (main reason for the HDD)), ETL/Integration tools, Office, etc.
