My First Build #Bitwit!

by Orlando M Posted on: 7/30/2021

Build Description

So this is the first build I've ever done. I was aiming to do something that would be good for gaming, for light video editing (no 4k or something like that), CAD applications, and that it would be under a reasonable price. Originally I didn't have a CPU cooler (only the included AMD wraith stealth) and a used 8Gb RX580. I was able to upgrade the CPU cooler recently as well as the GPU to an RX6700xt thanks to a friend that was able to snatch one from one of the AMD drops. The main upgrades I would like to do in the future would be the CPU, the CPU cooler, the PSU and maaaaybe the case just because I would like to have the 5950x and I'm not sure if I'll be able to fit a cooler big enough for it inside my case, but so far this PC does everything I need it to do.

Favorite Feature

My favorite thing about my PC is how clean and compact it looks, I'm not a fan of the huge towers but also wasn't planning on spending extra $$$ on mini ITX systems, so micro ATX was the way to go and I'm quite satisfied with the result..
