Stormtrooper

Build Description

I had a hand me down machine that was alright for R6 Siege, but I wanted to build my own. I didn't really have a budget, but wanted to keep it reasonable. I think for everything, including Win 10 was right around $1,550. I mostly play Star Wars BFII, Insurgency Sandstorm, Skyrim, and FO4. I have also been playing Diablo 2 which still holds up even after 20 years. I will most likely be getting some stuff from Cable Mod, primarily the white cables to match the Snow Thermaltake case. All in all, I am very happy with my first build, and look forward to tinkering around with it more.

Favorite Feature

I like the RGB fans as they come with a remote and their own controller, and the case is great for air flow and cable management.
