My Daily Driver/Project PC

Build Description

First build was back in 2014ish?
Had an AMD A10 7700K Black Edition with Asrock fatal1ty fm2a88x+ killer board, 8GB Crucial Ballistix RAM 1600Mhz, MSI R9 270 Twin Frozr 2GB, 128GB Samsung 840 PRO SSD and 1TB WDBlue HDD, EVGA 500W 80 Plus PSU, in a Corsair Carbide Spec01 lol.
This is my complete overhaul (2.5 years-ish old now. Newest part is GPU, originally had an Asus RX580 4GB)
Built this purposely for casual gaming at 1440p high/ultra, photo editing and minor video work..
Running 2 monitors ACER Nitro VG271U and MSi Optix MAG24C.. (Yeah cringey cause not matching monitors lol)
Peripherals are Razer Deathadder Elite mouse, Ornata Chroma Keyboard, Goliathus Extended Chroma mouse pad. (Might do an overhaul on these too..)
For Audio I'm currently running FiiO E10K USB DAC/AMP to a Philips Fidelio X2HR open back headphones. Speakers are Logitech z623 system.
Mic is a Fifine T669 with boom arm and shock mount.

Aiming to upgrade CPU and Mobo in the future. Possibly to Ryzen 7 and X570 board. Maybe AIO cooling since I have the space..

Feel free to roast or suggest anything lol

Favorite Feature

My V1Tech GPU sag bracket lol cause I'm a filthy casual weeb
