The White Wolf

Build Description

I built this PC to use for school and gaming. The data files I deal with in my space physics research were way too big for my macbook to handle quickly, and my 8 year-old PS4 was just begging to get replaced with something new. I've been learning to play mouse and keyboard with Destiny 2, which makes sense when you learn that Destiny 1 was the first game I grinded on console way back in middle school. My next upgrade is going to a be a 144 Hz monitor so I can make full use of the PC's performance.

Favorite Feature

My favorite part of this build is the white GPU which matches the case so well. I can't imagine a better aesthetic fit than what I lucked into on FB Marketplace, and the blue rings on the fans inspired the white/cyan theme I'm running with.
