Hand-Me-Down Wife Build!

by Alex H Posted on: 12/27/2021

Build Description

This was my original gaming pc I built in 2011 (my first current pc). Once I outgrew it and upgraded parts, my wife (girlfriend at the time) wanted a desktop to type her college papers on, and do light gaming, such as The Sims 3. She got my GTX 1060 when I upgraded that, a new SSD, and a new PSU, but everything else is my original parts! I do not remember what I paid for any of these items, as I bought them at local gaming stores and not an online retailer

Favorite Feature

Her favorite part is no LEDs! Since components back in 2011 didn't really have that many LEDs, she sees that as a positive!
