Intro gaming build ($1200~)

by Lukas H Posted on: 2/10/2021

Build Description

Went to Micro Center with the goal to buy all my components in-store considering the current online price increase on components. I was incredibly impressed with all the options and went with what I believe was the best componets for the budget I had set. Blows my old gaming laptop out of the water. Only got the MSI 1050ti as a hold over until 3060ti's are more available.

Favorite Feature

The case had tons of room for putting the systems together. (helpful considering this is my first build ever)
Only issue was my motherboard did not support the USB C-Type port since there was no onboard connection for the cable.
