This was my first build, and I thought I would go with a lower level GPU as to not break my wallet. the whole thing works wonderfully. The entire experience of building a PC for the first time, and then getting it to work, after a whole debacle of getting ram that wasn't compatible with my motherboard, was a feeling that could only come from this. I am only a teenager with no previous experience building computers other than watching build videos, and am amateur gamer who, like almost everyone (I think) on PCPP, would greatly approve of an upgrade from a Macbook pro from early 2015 to a full desktop. All in all, I'm not very good at writing paragraphs that are detailed, but I'll try to give you the entire story. Basically, near the end of 8th grade, I started to have an idea. That idea was to have a gaming PC by the time my brother went off to college, which would have been in a year. Then I went to half a year, which would have been December this year, until I managed to rack up enough cash to buy all of the parts incrementally, and now I have it. The time predictions did change a lot, but I am very impressed with what I did, and I plan on making more builds, and uploading them here. This build changed my life, computer wise, and for all of the first time pc builders, have fun with your build. make it unique. make it yours. But in all honesty, I have put so many hours into comparing specs vs price that I should be worn out, but I have always liked putting things together, no matter how complicated. I went from legos to a computer, and that's such an exponentially large jump, it is impossible to describe the euphoria that I felt when I realized that I, a speck of dust smaller than quarks and leptons in the grand scheme of things, could build something like this. Thank you to PCPP for existing as a website, and letting people customize PC's since the beginning of this website. This is my computer, and I hope you like it.
