Work & Play

by KG S Posted on: 12/1/2022

Build Description

My biggest need and reason for building was to update to a modern workstation. As both a professional and a hobbyist, I do a lot of photo editing and moving to new technology was long overdue. The Ryzen 9 with 12 cores, 24 threads is very efficient for workstation tasks.

Favorite Feature

I even recently purchased a RX 6600 graphics card because I was happy to see gpu prices come down to reasonable levels after a number of years. This addition has made it both a work and play machine!
