Budget Gaming/School PC

Build Description

My oldest daughter plays games like Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Forza, etc. I wanted to build a PC that could give some good performance and stability

Favorite Feature

The Motherboard is superb for Wifi. That was another big challenge for this build. I had to be sure that the Wifi onboard was good because I didn't want to mess with wiring my house for LAN.
