First Gaming PC

by Kian F Posted on: 5/19/2022

Build Description

This is my first gaming PC I built in March 2019. I initially had an 8700k but upgraded to a 9900k about a year ago. I mostly play Apex Legends now, but I've also played tons of single player games like Ori, AC Odyssey, Mafia Remastered, and lots more.

Favorite Feature

I love my 2080 Ti. DLSS has proven to be awesome and RTX seems to be maturing into a legitimate technology. It was pretty expensive when I got it but considering the 3000 series release and GPU prices after then, I'm not upset at all. I remember people selling them for $500 just prior to the 3070's release - can't imagine that felt good hahaha.
