Build Description

I built this computer mainly to play games with my friends, as my old Dell Vostro couldn't hold up anymore, even to basic tasks. I mainly play Minecraft, Roblox, and occasionally Apex Legends. Now thinking about it, I definitely would have gotten a better graphics card, as I got it right before the prices spiked up and could have gotten a better deal. I also would have gotten a graphics card without a blower style fan, as my graphics card runs LOUD.

Favorite Feature

My favorite part of this PC is the CPU cooler, as it does its job very well and adds a nice touch to the build.
