Pokey Express

Build Description

Built this system primarily as a hobby and for PC gaming including (but of course not limited to) Assetto Corsa, Rocket League, Battlefield, Squad, and Insurgency Sandstorm. The CPU and GPU are a bit dated now so I am planning on a CPU and GPU update once the 3000 Nvidia series is released.

Favorite Feature

The success of my first hardline build; and the fact that it was done in a tight space! Lots of blood, sweat, and beers...
