Small Budget PC

by Andrew N Posted on: 2/2/2022

Build Description

I received an old GTX 1050 Ti from a friend and decided to build a PC around it for a low price.
I do plan to upgrade to a better GPU in the future so I probably should have gotten a bigger case in hindsight.

Favorite Feature

Although it is a small case, it is nice that it does not take up a lot of desk space which can be pretty convenient.
