Jim's 280x

Build Description

1440p high framerate gaming! Shooters, racing sim, AAA adventure games, a healthy diet. Also RGB overload. https://streamable.com/n1kb07

Favorite Feature

Tight, compact viewing area with the main components. Very happy with the aesthetics I ended up with. Photos include a final finished interior shot, an early photo just after initial build before I went a little nuts, and an outside glory shot from the day I put in the AIO.

My only regret with the build. Adequate but I wish I went with a more quiet Gold model.
