Mid Century Modern PC

Build Description

This is my gaming and production rig. I built everything from the desk to the tower itself, it's aesthetically pleasing and wonderfully custom with just enough future proofing.

Favorite Feature

I built the desk it's on from a solid wood butcher block counter top from home depot and incorporated the cable management rack from a server to hide the cables.

As far as the system itself the Ryzen CPU keeps pace amazingly, and the 2080ti powered Samsung 49-Inch CRG9 Curved Gaming Monitor (LC49RG90SSNXZA) is a force of nature, and the single GPU has more than enough headroom to run an additional Samsung 4k in portrait mode.

I can run any game on ultra settings and don't miss a beat. I really enjoy this build.
