Build Description

This was my first experience ever building a PC. My friends had been encouraging me over the past year to build one and finally broke down and began the process after finding a 3060ti at a local Best Buy (at MSRP!!!). Overall, was a great and painless experience. Had no issues with the build and did not require BIOS update etc. I mainly play FPS games (Destiny 2, EFT, halo). I was not initially spending alot on this PC but got most of the parts for great prices around black Friday/cyber monday.

Favorite Feature

I liked the NZXT H510 Flow case because it's gorgeous and overall easy install process. Cable management wasnt too difficult in the back and my massive fan fit perfectly. also it had great airflow since my parts would be pretty hot with a non-airflow case.
