Build Description

Upgraded from a 10 year old PC. I wanted to get something a lot newer and gaming ready. out of all the things that I have, the only thing I need to upgrade is the GPU. Still using an ASUS GTX 790 on loan from nephew. I think that the B550 and 3600 will be good for now. Although I have 16gb of memory, I will upgrade to 32 or maybe 64gb in the future, but for now, the GPU is top priority.

Favorite Feature

At the beginning of the year, I replaced my old 600w PSU for an EVGA 750G Gold 750w PSU, it is super quiet and I feel ready to upgrade to a 3060 when possible, maybe even a 3070....
