Operation D.K. (Depression Killer)

by Camco Posted on: 2/24/2021

Build Description

Built this rig to do two things, kill my looming depression and enjoy great games with friends. For me, like many others gaming is a way to escape the daily nonsense or troubles we may be going through; my father did and passed that down to me way back in 1998. To this day, even though he is gone, gaming is a way for me to have fun, beat down depression, and remember him. This rig is primarily for gaming but will be used for content creation once I get the rest of what I will need. Games such as CP2077, CoD MW and CW, The Witcher 3, Valheim, Valorant, Battlefield, and many more. Due to my more FPS nature, I decided to pair the PC with an ASUS TUF VG259QM Gsync 280hz monitor with an IPS display and 1ms GTG. I may end up swapping out the ML and SP120 fans for a full set of QL fans and maybe add a few led light strips in there given the tinted side panel. That's about it for now. Hope you enjoy the build!

Favorite Feature

As silly as it sounds, my mouse pad. Always loved larger mouse pads and finally found one that looked great and actually covered the entire desktop; but above that, finally having a 3080 is insane. Definitely cannot go wrong with this.
