Build Description

I built this computer out of curiosity for how computers are built. I have been trying to build one for a while, but when I finally got the funds for it, I could not get what I wanted, which is why I have a used GTX 970 as my GPU. I have been playing Destiny 2 and Overwatch on my machine, but also use it for 3D modeling for my Mechanical Engineering classes.

Favorite Feature

I really like the motherboard one it. Although there is no wifi, I was only going to use a ethernet connection. This was a really good bang for the buck.
