So I recently decided that I wanted to get into PC gaming and purchased an Acer Nitro laptop, i5 processor with 1050 Ti graphics card. I thought a laptop would be a great idea since my wife has been talking of getting one, why not kill two birds with one stone? Worked REALLY well and made me realize how much I enjoyed PC gaming (after playing console when I was younger)...ended up getting an Acer XF240H monitor, HyperX keyboard and Redragon mouse and plugged it all up to the laptop. Fortnite ran awesome on the laptop and then I ended up getting Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and realized the limitations of the laptop and reaching >120fps or even much past 60!
This build was truly a fun experience and a bit of an impulse, honestly. The case is small enough to fit on my desk and I'm still putting the PC through some testing I suppose, it's only been alive for one day! Windows was installed without a problem, updated BIOs and got my RAM running at 3200. I watched a lot of YouTube and I'm still searching for tips and tricks! The build took me a while and by far the most intimidating part was hooking up all the wires to the motherboard.
The only thing I'm adding and waiting on is an RGB strip from Airgoo that will be compatible with Aura Sync on the mobo. That should arrive tomorrow and I'll probably run white lights inside because of the all black build...its a bit hard to appreciate on the desk when you can't see anything!!
Hope y'all like!
