AMD-Ryzen

Build Description

I build PC's to last 5-10 years. Even if you purchase from a main line PC manufacturer, go for a top tiered pc that will last. You will get your moneys worth. You save few hundred bucks building your own and I'm thankful for Microcenter and their very competitive pricing.

Favorite Feature

Overclocking the AMD-Ryzen CPU and GTX GPU. The case is perfect for air flow. I'm running games, virtual machines, and Plex media server with no problems. Running 32GB RAM instead of 16GB slows RAM speed just a tad, but having a game rig that seconds as a virtual machine rig takes memory.
