Taunty's Main Build

by Kevyn M Posted on: 9/8/2020

Build Description

Primarily being used for classwork, gaming, 3D modeling software, and light video editing. Changed from an old laptop to this desktop because as a student at home, I felt I needed some more power and a faster PC. I also use it as a gaming rig. I play Valorant semi-compeitive and CS:GO. I also use 3D modeling software like Solidworks and Autodesk Fusion for my Robotics program and 3D printing group. I make short montage videos for YouTube using Adobe Premire CC.

Favorite Feature

My favorite part is the mini-ITX design and the silver, black, and white color scheme. I worked during the Summer to build this PC (my second overall) and I'm very proud of it.
