2022 Budget Desktop

by David W Posted on: 12/7/2022

Build Description

This is a bit of a general purpose build for some light gaming, transcoding, playing around with linux, etc. Most of the parts were either on hand or bought on sale. I do plan to get a better cooler (currently the stock cooler) to keep noise levels a little lower.

Favorite Feature

It has room for a blu-ray drive but the front still has lots of mesh and isn't too bad looking.
