Spider-Byte

Build Description

I built this rig as an update to my previous gaming pc. I chose the Spider-Verse theme since Spider-Man is my girlfriend and I's favorite super hero, and we loved the Enter the Spider-Verse movie. I loved the colors and vibe of the movie, so I decided to keep that in mind with my build. Originally, I was constantly upgrading my pc with my I7-4790, and GTX 750 ti. All in a Corsair Carbide Spec-03 case. It went from a 750 ti, to a 970, then a 1070, then finally a Ryzen 5 3600 and RTX 2070 Super. I finally decided that I was just going to start a whole new build from scratch, and settled with this current Ryzen 7 5800x/RTX 2080 ti build. Primarily I play Overwatch, but really enjoy AAA games such as Red Dead Redemption, AC Origins/Odyssey, Monster Hunter World, and the Far Cry Series. Future upgrades definitely consist of a RX 6800 XT whenever I can a hold of one, so I can have the benefits of an all AMD system (Smart Access Memory). I also want to get a custom RGB backplate for my GPU with a Spider-Man theme.

Favorite Feature

So far, I'm really loving the case. I mean, I enjoy my build in it's entirety, but what makes it come all together is the Lian Li Lancool II Mesh case. It was such a breeze building in this case. Tons of space, air flow, sturdy build quality, and very conveniently built. You can definitely tell they had the user in mind when designing the case. 10/10 would recommend.
