First Time Build--Mostly Gaming

by L S Posted on: 2/17/2020

Build Description

I went with what I felt was a comfortable price point for my first build. Didn't want to go crazy without the confidence that it would work the first time I assembled it. Ben at Madison Heights was easy to work with to secure all the parts. Build took 3 hours from start to getting Windows to load in. Install went without a hitch and everything seems to be working perfectly. The GPU was a good compromise from what I wanted (2080 Ti) to what made sense. I'd recommend the EVGA 2070 Super to anyone that is on a budget. I went simple on the case, it was easy to work in and cord management was good. The temps on everything is great as well.

I forgot to get 2 intake fans for the case. Had to go to my local BB since MC was too far to go back to before I started this.
