Finally a Gaming PC

by Dylan R Posted on: 6/15/2022

Build Description

I built this because I was stuck with a pretty bad prebuilt PC that was supposed to be just a general-purpose/desktop PC but I added a GTX 1050ti into it in order to play games at decent performance. But games still ran pretty slow and my computer would stutter with too many chrome tabs or chrome and a game open. I finally built this with money saved up in order to have a computer that wouldn't lag, freeze, or give me a hard time in general. It runs practically every shooter (TF2, Fortnite, Valorant, etc.), Ark, GTA V, and other games very well. Newer games like Elden Ring and some other titles require the graphics settings to be lower, but this is because I'm bottlenecked by my 1050ti, as I was unable to get a new graphics card because of the sky-high prices.

Favorite Feature

I really like the case itself as well as the PSU because it made everything really easy and nice looking.
