I recently got into PC's about 8 months ago. Now that I got promoted at work, I'm not forced to buy used parts like my last build. I did carry some of the parts from that build over to this considering they were pretty much new, but I consider it a new build since 80% of it is new. I know some of it is a bit overkill for gaming, but I wanted to future proof and I just like having more power :D
I intended on doing a custom water loop for both cpu and gpu, but after staring at my EKWB shopping cart of $900, I decided that it's not worth it right now. I'm still new at this and I barely overclock (nor do I even have the need to for what I do)..Plus, it just doesn't seem right to take apart a hybrid ftw 1080.
*I'm booting off of an inland m.2 ssd, but it's not in pc partpickers inventory.
