Home Office / Gaming PC

Build Description

Desktop PC for general home office use and gaming. My old system was adequate for the games I play the most (Rocket League; Fortnite), but wasn't really up to the challenge of playing newer AAA games. Plus, I wanted a little more responsiveness for my day-to-day working from home, which isn't going away any time soon. I was able to snag a 3060 Ti from Microcenter at MSRP, so I decided to build a new system around it!

Favorite Feature

I went with an i5-12600k CPU, which meant I needed to get a Z690 motherboard (MSI Pro Z690-A DDR4). I love having 4 M.2 slots, as I've eliminated a lot of cabling clutter and have a fast, clean system.
