My Cool Pc (The card is a Zotac 1070 founders)

Build Description

I built this pc in pursuit of better gaming performance because playing at 20 fps was getting old. I built it in january this year which was when I found out about microcenter. I am planning on getting a 3080 and switching to ryzen. I might have stayed with ryzen as I really didn't think it would be a big deal but with an x570 board I could have had a better upgrade path. I know the specs might not be the best on here, but I am quite proud to call it mine. If you're wondering why I have so much rgb it is because I was planning on getting a few higher end parts like a 2080/2070 super, but covid prevented that so I got a 1070 and I'm glad I did as it works great and has given me many great experiences that I hadn't seen before like 144hz, ultra settings and much faster video editing. I joined this contest to feel a bit more confident about my build. Seeing a few builds on here that looked quite nice and had similar specs made me feel pretty good. The games I mostly play are: Skyrim, Red Dead 2, Fallout 76, Star Control Origins and Galactic Civ 3.

Favorite Feature

I really like the case as I feel it is unique and stands out compared to other cases.

I pulled it from another computer. Works pretty good. I don't know the price but 50 seems about right.
