First Gaming Build

Build Description

I built this pc after saving for a long time. I used to play on PS4 but wanted a better gaming experience. So I started saving and had enough for it in march and went to micro center to buy all the parts. everything was very easy to put together. I play competetive FPS games like Fortnite, Rainbow six, Valorant and CSGO. I get 144 FPS easily in all games on ultra settings. I also play games like GTA V and RDR2 which i get around 60 FPS in the open world and 100 FPS in buildings. One thing i would've done different is to of went with AMD over Intel for 6 cores and 12 Threads rather than 6C and 6TH. My upgrade would have to be a I9 9900K because its still a beast processor for gaming and content creation. I would also not have to upgrade my MOBO like i would a 10 series Intel or AMD CPU. Over all it is a very good gaming build not the best for streaming but i get good FPS for competitive games and have had no problems so far.

Favorite Feature

I like the RGB and how nice it looks on the white parts in the case.
