it was supposed to be a simple upgrade

Build Description

Needed to upgrade my aging PC (2015 build) to keep up with WFH workload, ended up building a mini Las Vegas in a box. Or a PC that can handle work, a home spin class, some games and VR capable plus more. It was also a fun project to get my son interested in PC building, which is always a plus.

Favorite Feature

Going to MicroCenter 20 times this year so far!
