Purple Demon

Build Description

Gaming rig. I play random steam games like phasmo, bloons td6, starwars battlefront II, Muck, Dead by Daylight, and Halo Infinite. I was given this pc from my Uncle, and its around 3-4 years old so I'm in need of upgrades, at least gpu-wise. I recently upgraded the cpu and motherboard at mc though, and went with an i7 10700k & MSI Z490 combo from Micro Center. I'd love to pick up some real rgb fans (not just purple ones, even if that fits my theme), or just more fans in general as, even without my psu in my case, it still gets pretty toasty in there. And I'm definitely in the market for more ram, as the pc came with one 8gb stick.

Favorite Feature

Well I certainly like the fact it was just given to me, as even a 1070 is something that is hard to come by these days (even though it's something I'm looking to upgrade very soon). The CPU is definitely my fav part. Compared to the i7-6700k I had before that came stock with the computer, this thing is a welcome improvement.
