Redshift Custom Build - 2020 (First Build)

by Mentour Bus Posted on: 4/6/2020

Build Description

This build is something that I wanted to do for the (now canceled) Exhibition of Learning. I mainly built it as something that I wanted to use as a topic for the EOL and for my own enjoyment, as my family has only one desktop computer. Currently, I play Cities: Skylines with mods and a little bit of Minecraft here and there. As of the future of my build, I plan on getting a job sometime in September and using the money from there to upgrade my build, which can be found in this PcPartPicker list.
