Clayst8tion’s PC Build

by Claystation Posted on: 8/21/2020

Build Description

I built this PC right before COVID-19 hit us here in New York. There were multiple reasons why I went forward with building this when I did – one of them being for remote working purposes as I am a Graphic Designer full-time for a company in New York City. I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t have streaming and playing video games on the list of reasons why also!

Part of me wishes I went with the EVGA RTX 2080 TI XC Ultra GPU rather than my 2080 Super but I’m not complaining. I know I’ll eventually upgrade to a dual SLI at one point or another but with that, I’ll probably need a bigger computer case and a higher wattage power supply. Also going to get another M.2 SSD for my motherboard since two are compatible.

I stream a variety of games Part-Time on Facebook and love interacting with new gamers in the chat!

Favorite Feature

My favorite part of this case has to be my CPU, the Ryzen 9 3900x. It’s the only reason I can pull-off streaming and playing video games on the same console. The thing is a total workhorse when it comes to multi-tasking, as we all know quite well.
