Build Description

I am a college student, and just a mid-level gaming guys, only do some GTAV, World of Warships, FFxiv and Assassin Creed games. I also need to run some programs on Unity. I understood I wont have a lot of money to buy all the greatest parts for the best gaming experience, but I still can enjoy most of them in a lower quality. I am also not a LED lover, so some LEDs will be enough for me. I am looking for some upgrades via Micro Center Atlanta for a better CPU(i5-12600K), which will need to buy a new motherboard(z690). They can be easy to find in Micro Center with good price which lower than anywhere else.

Favorite Feature

Affordable, and still allow you enjoy most of the gaming features
