Fletcher Gaming build

Build Description

I built this PC to cross over from Console gaming to PC gaming. I am a lifelong PlayStation fanboy and decided to venture out into something new. I will still play PlayStation but my PC will be my main gaming platform to play adventure games such as Assassins Creed. In addition, I will be using this PC to play all the Xbox titles that I like such as Gears of War and Halo. This PC is pretty much the vehicle I will be using to enhance my gaming experience and get off of PlayStation Island.
The secondary reason for this PC is to get used to windows 10 again. I have been an Apple fan boy as well and my family has been this way for about 10 years. The only PC I have in my house was a small ASUS from Walmart that was only used to run Microsoft Project for my project management courses in my MBA. Now I have this powerful computer to run my projects.

Favorite Feature

Everything. I am a noob to PC. This is my first Gaming PC and I wanted to make it a good one. I’m a kid in a candy store who as an unlimited appetite. Haven’t had this long enough to understand what is good or bad. As mentioned before I’ve only had cheap PC’s to run Microsoft Project and this PC by far is the best I’ve ever had on every aspect. From performance to speed to appearance and customizations.
