Personal PC for photo shop and gaming usage.

Build Description

When I moved from west coast to east in 2019, I sold my previous PC (4790K, but I kept GTX 970 alone). Then I need a new one to play Dota 2 and do PS on my personal photos (some subscription on Instagram). I decided to build with the latest CPU at that time. I bought all the parts (9900k + RTX 2070 + 970 pro) in Micro Center in mid 2019 and built the current one. After I assembled them, I regret only bought 16GB(2*8) memory. So I bought another set of 32GB(2*16) and added them to the PC. So it is wired that I got 48GB memory, With the 2070 and 970, I got good performance. But now I gave 970 to my friend for temporary usage as the graphic card now is super high. I changed the case to 5000D this year.

Favorite Feature

9900k and RTX 2070 work well for the past 3 years, I got no trouble no matter for gaming or PS.
