First pc build!

Build Description

I wanted a PC that I could use for gaming, streaming, and editing videos. I mostly play first person shooter games and have played League of Legends. I also have a YouTube channel which I create vlogs to share my life with the world. With my love for gaming, I also decided to start streaming on Twitch. I had a lot of help from my friend when I was building this PC. I wish I knew how small and tight mini-ATX motherboards were. Even with my tiny hands, plugging in everything was kind of tough. In the end, I am really happy with my build. It allows me to be able to do everything I want without overheating or the PC slowing down. I eventually would like to upgrade my case fans and RAM to add more color.

Favorite Feature

The case allows you to see into your PC and appreciate all the computer parts.
