Gaming and Work from Home Command Center

Build Description

I started PC gaming on a Razer Blade 15 and fell in love with it. I'm also a designer so I need something that can rip through Photoshop and Illustrator so I built my desktop. I mostly play Apex Legends, but also do some emulation. My system is a Ryzen 5600x, RTX 3070, 16GB RAM, 512GB NVMe SSD,and a 2TB HDD. The main monitor is a 32in 165hz Dell curved gaming monitor and the second monitor was a hand me down.

Favorite Feature

My favorite part is definitely the RTX 3070 because I had to wait in line at Microcenter on launch day to get it. I wasn't even able to build the rest of the PC until February.
