I got fed up with my old MacBook and finally decided to build a PC for myself this year. I started gathering parts in July 2021 and got the system to post the following month. Most of the parts I got on sale through Newegg and Micro Center, and the motherboard was the one part I bought secondhand. I built this system for Battlefield 2042 and 1440p high refresh rate gaming. I also plan to use this to learn how to code/program; I want to get into a coding bootcamp to start a new career in tech. I may also use this for streaming, video editing or music production eventually. For a first time build, I'm pretty happy with how this system turned out. Let me know what you guys think as well as what can be improved to make this system even better. Thanks!

Built exclusively for gaming when the lockdown initially hit and I knew I would be bored. Initially started as unicorn puke RGB but over the last year, I phased out of it and went to minimalistic monochrome type of look. Added a Star Wars Tie Interceptor as a bonus since it suits the theme. This was an entry way to building a PC that I wanted to build for several years. Initially I started streaming for a few months, then things started getting busy so I kind of left it behind. However, I'd absolutely get back into streaming (ProjectZuki - Twitch) Primary games: Destiny 2, The Division 2, Rocket League (if I'm in a good mood), 7 Days to Die, Cyberpunk Most games run solid on highest settings. Except Cyberpunk obviously, and literally no graphics card can run 7D2D without setting itself on fire first. Games run at a stable 75 FPS ultrawide 16:9 2560x1080 by LG Future upgrades: Graphics card. We all secretly have a thing for that precious Strix logo, their RTX 3060 is the largest I can fit in this case. Asus TUF 3070 is a solid choice as well. At this point, anything I can get my hands on is an upgrade but what I have now runs great and I refuse to support scalpers. If anything, I would have gone with a Lian Li 011 Dynamic. I may even switch in the near future. However with the Corsair 220T I enjoy the small just-enough size that is plenty spacious for sufficient airflow, and not too small that hardly anything fits.

I built my PC originally for Destiny 2 and have since upgraded it for better 1440p high refresh rate gaming. Currently, my primary games have been Genshin Impact, Destiny 2, and the New World Closed Beta. As amazing as the Noctua NH-D15S is, I do want to replace it with a 360 AIO in order to truely vertically mount the GPU. Right now, the 3070 is vertically mounted at an angle under the heatsink as it's the only way it'd fit.

I wanted the new 5000 series processor and a new GPU in anticipation of games like Psychonauts. If GPU price wasn't an issue, I'd have likely gone with a 6800xt, but the 6700xt was a large upgrade over my previous rx470 card

What started out as a simple build in late January, to help process photos in Lightroom and 4k drone footage, quickly got out of hand as March rolled around and everyone one was stuck inside. Next, after a 13 year hiatus Steam was installed back on the computer and CSGO with the old crew was back in full swing. The bones of this system in January were a Ryzen 9 3900, Asus TUF x570, Gskill 32gb, Raedeon 580, a Samsung Evo 970 pro n.2 and a Corsair HX Power supply pretty grand prix by some standards. With all the hours of usage added to the machine in March I couldn't go forward without making a couple of major upgrades. On more than one occasion (two) I maxed out the 32gb of ram in Lightroom and Premiere so that was the first upgrade 128gb ddr4 RGB Corsair Vengeance. Also, when I first bought the Ryzen 9 3900 I didn't fully realize what a powerhouse I was getting. Pairing the Ryzen 9 up with the Raedeon 580 felt like owning a Ferrari and putting regular gasoline in it. The next upgrade was the RTX 2080ti. It felt a little bit dangerous running all these components with a power supply that was 8 years old so after doing a bit of research I found that the Corsair RM850 had some of the best acoustics in the RM series. Other notable mentions in the computer are all Noctua coolers and fans also chosen for acoustic qualities. The last bit was I realized I still had an N.2 space to fill so I grabbed a 2TB XPG S50 NVME drive, this thing is a rocket, I regret not installing windows on it, that's the only regret I have with this system. Onto the most important parts of the computer, the peripherals. Having a powerful supercomputer is great but it's worth nothing if you're clicking a crappy mouse and using rubber doomed keyboard switches. For the keyboard and mouse I was pretty flexible for the most part with requirements but I did have one very import requirement that limited my available selection greatly, its 2020 and they have to be wireless, I can't have wires on my desk it's just in appropriate at this point. For the mouse it was between the Logitech G703 and the Corsair equivolent. I went Logitech just because it was a bit more low profile. Keyboard was a much more complex decision with a much more complex result. There are no to very few wireless keyboard options with Cherry MX brown. So after weeks of quarantine research I went with Keychron K2 with Gateron browns, it's a great keyboard but I dove down the rabbit hole on mechanical keyboards. The result was Keychron K6 hot-swap with Zealios V2 switches and Tai Hao PBT Keys definitely a very special board and lots of fun to put together. The last peripheral that I didn't get into yet is the monitor. I started with a 32 Samsung 4k Curved. This was fine for the level of editing I was doing when I first got the computer. Once I started gaming the 60hz just didn't cut it. I grabbed an Acer Predator 4k 120hz and it was great but expensive for a 27 inch monitor, it also didn't have every feature I was looking for like HDR 1000. The only monitor that does have that is the ASUS ROG 27 which is even more expensive. After another couple of weeks of research and decision trees I decided to give the LG C9 55 inch OLED TV a try as my computer monitor wall mounted, best decision I've ever made in my entire life. It's got all the features you want from the ASUS ROG 27" monitor for the same price and its OLED the best local dimming you can have, the contrast, colors and HRD are the BEST. Lastly I'll mention the case. I made this case custom in college 10 years ago as a Hack Pro. I took a G5 Apple Case, cut the back out and threw a Lian Li Motherboard tray in soldered some wires on the front panel. During Corona Virus quarantine I took the customization to the next level. I painted the interior Matte Black to bring it up to modern standards and made more modern cable routing possible under the motherboard tray,it was one of the best 3AM start time projects I've ever done. It really elevated the level of the system. The most fun part of the project was getting everything on the front panel working and getting a female USB-C working through an old Firewire port.

The Noctua NH-D15 is damn near silent, and the triple-fan 2070 Super runs most games very quietly. RGB wasn't much of a concern (it sits below my desk) but the built-in lights on the motherboard and Maingear case logo are nice! Mostly am using it for Call of Duty Warzone right now (runs it with ray-tracing on at 144 fps, and never goes above 60 C, if that) Most of the parts came from Micro Center, but I got some really good discounts for the motherboard and GPU on Amazon Warehouse deals and Newegg's eBay page

It was my first ever build which i have continued to improve over these two years. I use it mostly for gaming, but since the whole work at home thing it's been a godsend to have it since I haven't had to deviate much from my capacities in my office. I play a number of games on this thing. Mostly been focusing on the battle royale craze with friends, CIV VI, Red Dead 2, and Witcher 3 to name a few. I am still learning, but this thing has been extremely reliable.

This was my first time building a gaming PC after being on console only forever. I mostly play Battlefield 4, Deep Rock Galactic, Overwtach, and cRPGs (like Divinity and Tyranny). I feel like this is a great base too for when I need to upgrade any parts. I chose a 3700X because I use this for data analysis for work as well.
