Ryzen build

Build Description

My almost 13 year old rig could no longer hang with Windows 10 and I needed a replacement. I don't play a lot of games, mostly Blizzard and Skyrim. I was looking to build something solid that I could hold onto for another long time.

Favorite Feature

I am enjoying the Gen 4x4 interface on the M2 SSD which seems to be much quicker than my old rig's PCI-e connection on a 790i motherboard.
