Profile

Hey! My name is Zach. I am a Sales Manager at a car dealership in Colorado. I'm a huge nerd and I'm proud of it! I enjoy all things related to technology from computers to cars to gaming and a whole lot more.

Gaming has always been a part of my life. I started gaming when my mom brought home the original Playstation 2 on launch day. I went from the PS2 to the PS3, PS4, switched to Xbox One, upgraded to the Xbox One X and then finally, I built my first PC. That is when things changed for me.

I was 17 years old with about $700 leftover from a summer job. The beautiful part about being 17 is that I had little to no responsibilities so that was when I decided to go ahead and build a computer for the very first time. I must've spent over 100 hours doing absolutely nothing other than watching hardware reviews, PC build videos and doing research. Since I was new to PCs, that $700 had to include everything from the PC, all peripherals and even a desk. The budget was tight but I got it done. My first build consisted of a Ryzen 3 1300X, 8GB of RAM, 500GB HDD and an Asus Dual 1060 6GB.
