Budget Banger

Build Description

This is the first computer I built and I built it at the beginning of the pandemic because I figured I would have a lot of free time and always wanted to have a PC setup to game on instead oif console. I needed peripherals and everything too, so I wanted to keep the built itself on the cheaper side. Admittedly, when I decided I would build it, I was so excited that I rushed into things a little bit. That leads me to the one downfall, I wish I went Nvidia for the GPU at the time. The Rx5700 serves me well, but DLSS would have been a welcome feature had I known it existed.

Favorite Feature

I really like the NZXT AER RGB fans. I think they are the cleanest, most minimalistic RGB accessory on the market.
