First Gaming PC

Build Description

My first gaming PC so that I can start playing with some better graphics. GPU is not on the strong end but I play mostly indie games so it's fine.

Favorite Feature

Ray-tracing support for some of the older games I play is super nice to have. Very lucky to have been able to get this at MSRP.
