Build Description

This PC was built with 1440p gaming at 120+ frames in mind. I play FPS games like CSGO and Warzone alongside RPG games like Far Cry, Witcher, and others. In the future, I plan to upgrade my GPU to a 3070 or even 3080 if the opportunity presents itself. That's probably the thing I would've done differently in hindsight. I had an opportunity to buy a 3070 at Microcenter and I passed it up because I thought I didn't need the upgrade but now I wish I hadn't. The PC handles everything I throw at it but just the idea of higher framerate without any worries about the video settings is appealing. I also realize that its about time I cleaned this PC out cause it's looking mighty dusty while taking these pictures.

Favorite Feature

The thing I love about this build is actually the braided cables I bought online. I never used 3rd party braided cables before but these worked really well. No issues at all with PSU compatibility and they make the build look so much cleaner! Also, the Lian Li case has a great way of hiding cables so you don't really have to "manage" them which is awesome.
