Vader #Bitwit

Build Description

I built this rig as my “workstation during the day, gaming rig at night” type of computer. I do CAD design work with programs such as Autodesk Inventor Professional, and FEA product simulation with Inventor Nastran In-CAD. As well, I setup scenes and perform renders using Keyshot 9. On the gaming side of things, I main GTA 5, Watch Dogs Legions, Modern Warfare, Minecraft with shaders, and will main in the future Far Cry 6. These games run at a stable 60 fps @1080p native resolution with my current graphics card. I’m also extremely into flight simulators, and I currently main msfs2020. With this “game”, my graphics card is able to output 20-30 fps with high settings @1080p native resolution.

Favorite Feature

The red and black NZXT H500 really allows my build to look clean as possible and pairs nicely with my parts. Since my build is Darth Vader themed, it was a perfect choice.
