Valtiel (Named after the Silent Hill 3 "Servant of God)

by CJ M Posted on: 12/4/2020

Build Description

My "Valtiel" desktop, named after the creepy Silent Hill 3 creature, was designed to give me mid to high-end gaming performance at at least 4K 60FPS. I play a lot of horror and singleplayer games, so I needed enough flexibility to update and modify classic games for play on my TV so that they look as good as possible, and to also push today's latest games to the max so I can enjoy enhanced realism and immersion thanks to new gaming features such as ray-tracing. I like to comfortably play most games from the couch on my 4K LG OLED TV + surround sound setup, so power, connectivity, and bleeding edge tech was what I was looking for.

I wanted my PC to look sophisticated but still have some understated flair. The Tomahawk chassis has a clean, square profile, and the RGB gives it a little ominous oomph. No flashing, just a nice vibe. The newly added EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming GPU helps me achieve my fidelity and performance goals.

Favorite Feature

EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming GPU is visually stunning and incredibly powerful
