Description

I've always wanted a desktop PC to game on primarily because they were much more powerful. Previously I was using a Toshiba qosimo X70 and it was great for a few years until it's gtx 770m was barely powerful enough to run any of the newer games. Finally after 5 years, the GPU melted and it was time to upgrade and join the PC master race.

With the help of a few friends who were experienced in building PCs as well as a few youtube videos and build guides, I researched for about a month or 2 until I was financially ready to build this rig. As it was also around my birthday at the time, my group of friends banded together and bought me the speakers and keyboard that have been listed in the build <3.

This machine is primarily for gaming, my main games being League of Legends, PUBG, Monster Hunter World and Apex Legends. I'll also use it as a workstation for light video editing.

Even with a few hiccups along the way, I am so happy with how it all turned out.

Haha thanks! Im a massive batman fan so thought the blueish black theme of the build would be accentuated by a little batman

Good write-up. Thanks.

Planning a similar build. :)

Love your desk, too. Is that an Ikea top and leg combination? Which ones?

What exactly is the purpose of the card board looking thing in your case?

If you're referring to the second picture, it's probably the glare

Hacxer_Jacxer09 0 points 1 month ago

It looks like cardboard. If it’s glare that’s the weirdest I’ve ever seen
