+ Total (United States):
This build was kind of spur of the moment. I had planned on building a PC for a few weeks now, but was not sure how much I was willing to spend on a computer. Life happens and i lost my older brother to heroine overdose about 3 weeks ago after he was just released from prison (his birthday would have been yesterday at the age of 27). At a very young age he was always happy to introduce me to games that he was playing and show me the ropes. My brother never had the opportunity to build a PC, so I decided to dedicate this build to him and go all out.
This is my first build so I was nervous throughout the entire process. Originally I was going to pay someone to help me because of just how clueless I was. Then it hit me one night, I just needed to grow up and handle my own ****. I just watched a few builds on youtube, read, read and read some more about specs and threw caution into the wind I was confident now. I never knew I would find so much joy hiding wires, and finding the correct plug ins inside the manuals. All in all only took me about 11 hours, and i could not be happier.
Future upgrades I plan on replacing my kraken v62 fans with AER RGB 140mm fans, getting another SSD (probably not another m.2), custom sleeving for my motherboard power and graphics card
Also would like to thank this website and the entire community for supporting and just generally showing in experienced builders the way of ascension.
