Quarantine Build

Build Description

I built this pc around quarantine in May-June. Its first purpose was for video games because that was all I had my mind set to. When I finished building the PC, I decided to try out making videos for fun because a couple years ago, I always dreamt of having an amazing computer to run any game I wanted at a playable amount of frames and start youtube with it. At that time I was running on an old computer my Dad brought home from work running games at 5-10fps. It was not the best PC but I was happy I could start my videogame journey with it. I bought all the parts when most of the components were fairly expensive or out of stock. this was also the time when GPUS were not as expensive as until now. I plan on upgrading my powersupply first, my cooling system (fans, CPU fan) to a liquid cooler. After that, I plan on upgrading my motherboard (b450 to a b550 or X570 maybe) because it is a little outdated. For my very first PC build I think I did alright with building it. The hardest part in my opinion was the cable management. There are some visible cables that could be routed differently to look better and cleaner !! That's all from me I hope u like my build :D

Favorite Feature

Probably the Wraith Prism Cooler. It looks really nice lol
