#BitWit - My Financial Mistake

by Chris D Posted on: 7/29/2021

Build Description

First build since 2006 after MANY years of console gaming. Long time follower of BitWit, Jayztwocents and LTT, watching all of their content finally convinced me to get off my wallet and get into gaming the right way. Little did I know that GPUs were impossible to find, so I had everything shipped, built it and looked at a hollow, unusable system for 3 weeks while I searched. I ended up driving 11 hours (round trip) to get my hands on an RTX 3060. I made a complete TUF build and was making zero compromises so I had to wait longer than I expected. I ended up acquiring a 90 degree 24 pin adapter to keep the inside clean, as well as a flexible USB 3.0 Cable. I will be installing a custom plate to hide the SSD panels and installing a Raspberry Pi screen with system information displayed. All in all, I am pleased with how it turned out. Chair is an XRocker Strike RGB (Canada Exclusive)

I feel like I planted myself firmly in the position of updated, yet entry level. Next mod is UniFans !

Favorite Feature

My favourite features by far are the design of the ASUS TUF Gaming design. From the "military inspired" colour and texture to the minimal emblems and stealth branding it was just too good looking to put on the floor or a table away from me. I 100% need a new desk to fit this behemoth, but for now, I'll happily look at the first system I built. I honestly couldn't have done it without the help from videos and facebook pages. Hope you like it !
