Build Description

This PC was bought on whim when I went to microcenter to do a return early on a monday when they happened to get a bunch of graphics cards and processors sent. Initially I was going to get a 3070 but then I noticed they had put out a asus 3060 TI tuf edition that was open box and over $70 off list price. It had been returned the night before by someone who wanted a 3080 I found out. It was still in its wrapper and unopened. Ended up also getting an AMD 5600x processor that had just arrived at the store. Most of the items including the ram, case and one hard drives were open box which really helps on price.

Favorite Feature

Has to be the 3060 ti. We ended up returning to Microcenter to buy a 1440p monitor not to far after. The price was a lot less since most items were open box and we used the Microcenter card for another 5% off.
