Easy Breezy

Build Description

Built my first gaming pc for myself. My previous experience on pc building was just helping family members save money on their PCs. Since I never built myself one I finally took the leap of building a good gaming rig on a budget. With main focus of playing games in 4K and VR gaming (Half-Life: Alyx!!!!!)

Future upgrades:

Ryzen 9 3900x or Zen 3 depending on features and pricing.
Looking forward to the new graphics cards from Nvida and AMD., and will more than likely upgrade once the specs are available.
looking to upgrade PSU in the future base on the new specs for the new ampere and navi cards.

Favorite Feature

I am very impressed with the case for this build the Corsair 275r airflow name is true. My main concern was thermals for this build. Case provides excellent airflow which keeps my components nice cool and surprisingly very quiet for an air cooler.
