I have pretty much always used Mac, dabbled with PC for family and friends. I needed to run the programs packet tracers for my Cisco training, I ran parallels and VMware on my Mac to try and run it but just wasn’t that great. So, even though literally ANY PC with XP or higher can run Packet Tracer, I decided I wanted to build something “cooler” (to me) that can also play GTA 5 mods, Steam’s car mechanic game; and maybe counter strike.
I originally put everything in my online cart, the price was a tad high for what I want it for. So instead I slowly bought parts on deals and discounts. The only used part was the Crucial SSD. Everything else was purchased with the help of Reddit and lots of waiting (eh, like 2 weeks)
