Description

I created this PC towards the end of college for productivity and entertainment. I graduated with an Associates in Information Technology and from the very beginning of my studies I knew I wanted to build myself a PC. My budget was low at the time and GPU mining had inflated GPU prices so I opted for the new Ryzen 5 2400G APU for light gaming like Rocket League and Fortnite. I started out with the single 720p panel from Walmart and over time I slowly upgraded several components like the CPU cooler, the cables, and I even got a GPU off Ebay once prices came down. I also added a second monitor recently for increased productivity when working with virtual machines for college assignments. I DIYed the desk itself and the GPU backplate with some acrylic and white spraypaint to save money for other components. The end result is my first PC build that I am beyond proud of. It doesn't have high end specs but it does what I need it to do and I take pride in knowing I built it. Information Technology is my passion and this PC represents the amount of TLC I put into my work. I love my build and I can't wait to build another one. Like if you agree #PCMR

Wow, really like it. Love the aesthetic you went for, your desktop background makes it even better. I bet this was a super fun project to work on, and tbh, even though it's not "high-end" it's still extremely capable of most things. Dual monitors is a game changer, since I got my 2nd monitor I feel like I could never go back to just one.

Exactly, I get so much more done now. I use Wallpaper Engine on Steam for my wallpapers. It's $5 but the animated wallpapers bring your setup to life. Thanks for the encouraging words.

Ooh, animated wallpapers. I have seen them but I never knew how to get them. I will have to try them out, customization makes a build different from others which is what PCMR is all about!

Yeah...I can customize to my hearts content. I recommend wallpaper engine to anyone. They have every wallpaper you could want.

You mentioned Rocket League in your post so I will bring it up:

Your setup reminds me of Neo Tokyo! It was on the tip of my tongue (or fingers, i guess) but after awhile I figured it out.

what if your single monitor could display multiple sources simultaneously???

Still prefer multiple monitors rather than one large/ultra-wide/whatever one. It just feels... right.

The namesake of the computer is accurate. You put a lot of passion into it, and the end product looks great.

How did you install that gpu backplate? I’m thinking of surprising a friend with one after we build his rig next month.

I just sat it on top...some people use 3M double sided tape though. I didn't though. My PC never gets moved.

Awesome, I’ll have to try it out. What did you use to cut the acrylic?

Plastic cutter....its usually by the acrylic.

Out of curiosity, did you build this after buying the ABS Eclipse on Newegg?

Just wanted to know if you knew the PSU that was supplied and max W on that one.

Great build btw, I'm trying something very very similar to yours.

Thanks
