My First machine - how did i go

Hi.

Building a work machine first for basic editing of videos, lightweight games and some data crunching. Later I plan to add a GPU and some more ram for gaming. I really would love to venture into VR world one day but I’m not sure if this build will get me there. Any advice welcome. It’s my first build attempt/plan.

    Hi. First build ever. I don’t have enough for a graphics card yet but this will get me started for basic work with the view to later use for gaming and possibly VR if I can ever afford a rig.
