So, My oldest son has been bugging for about 3 Months now about getting a PC so he can play CS: GO as well as other PC based games. I pushed it off until it was around his birthday in February. At the beginning of the year, I started doing my research of which "PC" to buy him. During this, I noticed that all the built PC's were either too blah or way out there on price. Then I did as I do for any of my car issues and turned to YouTube. I stumbled upon JaysTwoCents, from there I knew that it would mean so much more if we built this ourselves. Did my research for about 4 weeks and knew that I did need to go all out right out of the gate but wanted a setup that looked and could handle upgrades to let to say an i7 knowing that my younger son will also want a PC and I could just reuse any parts that I upgrade on this PC.
Shout out to all the YouTube channels, especially Jay for teaching me how to build this PC.
Think of this as the car you want to get your 16-year-old. Something not too powerful but looks nice.
Does its job and runs well with the system. As a starter Gaming PC I am pleased with the performance.
Adds a beautiful touch to my white build. Overkill to start but at least its ready for a more demanding CPU to OC.
Very pleased with the look and performance. heard complaints about the 5Mhz Wifi but is works great for me even with being 40+ feet away. When it first starts up the RGB's blink red like you messed something up but its just the way they have it starting up. Could be any other color to not scare first time builders. Just think you would be spending $30 bucks on Wifi in a system but this one already has it.
Needed RAM. Used what I could find.
Was going to go M.2 NVMe but didnt want to wait. Works great.
Great for my Beginner build
Very nice case for the money. weird blue LET (hyper white if you want to call it) case fan. didn't use it.
Needed Power/ on sale.
