Multipurpose desktop, mostly gaming, but also taxes (equally exciting, right?). Been waiting (and waiting, and waiting...) to get FFVII remake on PC but nobody seems to know when SE might announce it, so I figured why wait - I’ll get Cloud, Tifa, and those other people (kidding, I know all their names, back stories, and favorite colors) anyways I put them in my PC and put a “Lifestream” theme into iCue to finish the look. Personally, I think it’s the next best thing to having FFVII remake actually on the PC!

It was an AMD A10 5800K, Gigabyte Fm2 motherboard and 8 gb Kingston RAM. I have been waiting 6 months to build my dream machine, but could not wait any longer. I just want to run M.S. Flight Simulator. I walked into Microcenter to buy a Lian Li Lancool II Mesh RGB case, and a few other items, since I have been buying pieces for my build here and there. I missed out on a Nvidia 3000 series GPU, but they had gotten many GTX 1660 cards. Since I could not get the Dark Hero MB, or a Ryzen 5950 CPU, and did not want to spend all my money on higher priced components, I decided on a budget build for now. Here it is. I will be using as many of these components as possible when I upgrade later.

Mainly built for gaming and work due to work from home given the pandemic circumstance. I play most AAA games and all games that on Xbox gamepass. So far I've played BF-V, Warzone, Far Cry 5, The Division 2, etc. I also use for zoom meetings when necessary.

The goal was a system that could do actual work at home on a budget with a clear upgrade path. Build began black friday 2019. Prices reflect current list prices per the website, not what was paid. Not intended for professional production work, hoping for a 4 year service life as primary machine. Budget was $750 to get a working system and later upgrade as needed. 3d modeling and CAD is the main purpose (less than 1,000 parts). It also does light video editing, photo editing, transcoding, and able to run most games. The most used programs still heavily rely on a single core CPU and tons of ram. It is also remotely accessed on the local network to do heavier work from a laptop and raspberry pi. The 4th gen i3 Intel laptop isn't capable of heavy tasks with out crashing so it was time for a desktop build. The 3600x faster clock speed was more important than the more cores of the 3700 for the programs used. 2 cores for 50% price increase didn't make sense for this build. Not sure if the cache would make much of a difference for typical usage. Went with x570 chipset hoping to upgrade CPU near end of next generation life to extend machine life. Not overclocking for now so using stock cooler. Needed mobo with wifi, x570, lots of usb, nvme m.2, and gigabit lan. Initially reused old PSU, Fans, Case, HDD and Sata SSD. Case is very oversized for the components but the price was right and has lots of airflow. Replaced 10 year old PSU and upgraded small Sata SSD to M.2 SSD this summer. PSU is overkill for current build but will accommodate any upgrades and 650w was out of stock. Programs with the option to CPU or GPU calculate seem to get better results with CPU but run slower. Easy to queue up the processes and let it run overnight. Choice was made to spend money on the CPU and ram over the GPU. Ray tracing video cards should improve real time productivity but the cost was not justifiable. Instead the best value card available that ran 1080p with multiple outputs was selected while waiting for the next generation of RTX cards. Ray tracing is a huge improvement for point cloud work productivity. For reference, my professional rig uses lastest gen quadro cards and 4x monitors for this kind of work. Will probably reuse the card for an ITX media center machine. The ram seems like overkill for the rest of the system but it will help with the programs currently running and allows for other parts to be upgraded without creating a bottleneck. It also left 2 ram slots open for upgrades. Highest consistent use is around 24 gb of ram. Dual channel helps too. Minimal local storage because of local NAS and off site backup. Wifi motherboard gave the flexibility to move the machine anywhere without extra cables. The couple extra dollars for the wifi motherboard was easy and better than the cost of a dedicated card. Still prefer the Ethernet connection. Added 3x salvaged optical drives for CD & DVD archive project. Raspberry pi's connected to a monitor to remote in from workshop areas. Access to plans, manuals, and videos greatly improves garage productivity. Also keeps a nice machine out of dirty, humid, and freezing environments.

I built it on a whim because I was tired of in-game lag and friends complaining about my unreliability when I was playing on a Mac. Originally, I was just going to buy one but decided two-day shipping was two days too long...so I drove to Micro Center, splurged a bit on parts, and built this that same day. Now I can play League, stream on Twitch (KiNGC0NNIE), and run discord all at the same time. The only things I might do differently in hindsight is get a better gpu and paint some of the parts white to give it a cleaner look. Maybe I'll upgrade it someday, but "Geisha" is more than enough for what I need right now. Never thought I'd build my own pc but it was not as difficult as I expected and definitely a fun learning experience. So excited to turn on my pc every morning!

I built this computer mainly for gaming/streaming but also tried to get what I need for video editing for my streams. Everything is pretty much done on it but I am looking into upgrading my GPU but am waiting to see what the new 30 series GPUs have in store, since I am in no hurry yet and don't have a need to upgrade right away. For whatever reason, I couldn't find NVME drives in the drop down but I have two 1gb Samsung EVO 970 NVME M.2s and a miscellaneous other hard drive.

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.

This specific computer is going to be used for entry level CAD design, when I talked to the customers about why they would want to use this computer for CAD design they stated that this computer would be about 20 times stronger than what they were currently using, therefore there was not a great need of high end components.
