5600G LOTR "Two Towers"

by Kaushal S Posted on: 2/2/2022

Build Description

I originally wanted to build another tower meant for Linux gaming via Steam as well as Minecraft, which I'm planning on expanding with the inclusion of a 30 series NVIDIA card (whenever they are available). I'm hopeful that will also help expand the capabilities of just the GTX 760 which is clearly outdated now. The B550 board has been a good choice, with the 5600g, though, as a budget-friendly build.

Favorite Feature

My favorite part of this build is the case, hands down. Good air flow, looks good on top of the desk, and brings a smile whenever I look at my rig.
