Build Description

Recently upgraded my potato of a computer with some (much-needed) new parts from Micro Center. This rig is mainly used for games, typically Halo Reach, Minecraft, Far Cry 5, and Mirror's Edge Catalyst. It's also being used as a workstation since all of my college courses are online due to COVID-19. I'm also a Valve Index user, and my RTX 3070 FE is more than capable of pushing the frames for VR titles.

Favorite Feature

Triple screens is a unique setup, but I absolutely love the productivity factor of having multiple screens. I can have live lectures on the main monitor, with course notes and work on the other two. Gaming on all three screens is incredible, once you try it you'll never want to go back to a regular display!
