About Nullarc77

Hi. I am Nullarc77. PCPP's resident Human Tank

My story.

Well I am 16 years old. I live in San Antonio Texas. I am from Minnesota. I lived there most of my life. But I have also lived in Indiana, Wisconsin, Kansas, Michigan and Missouri. I have moved a lot. In total I have moved 13 times. Some people may not like moving around that much. I have. Being able to live in all these different places and all the different experiences are something I would never trade for living in one spot.

I am just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe. - Temuera Morrison. Star Wars Episode 2 Attack of the Clones.

My history with computers.

It all started when I was about 11 years old and I got Minecraft for the PC. Having only played it on the Xbox 360 up to that point, and having seen many videos of the PC version and how much better it was than the consoles version I was excited when I bought it on PC. Then when I finally got the game downloaded and started playing it. Well my laptop at the time could not really run Minecraft well. On some of the lowest settings I could not get 30fps most of the time. So I started looking into things I could do to fix it. And that is what got me into computers.

I started doing research into how I could upgrade a laptop. After watching several videos I found that I really couldn't do anything to get better performance on my laptop. So I started looking towards alternate options. At this point I had a growing list of games I wanted to play on PC. So just getting something for Minecraft was out of the question because that would mean a system that couldn't play other games I wanted to play. So I started looking into what to look for in a gaming PC. Then my Dad recommend that I build one. He said it would be much easier than I expect and he advised I do research into it. So I did. After about 50 hours of youtube videos I was able to grasp how to build a PC and what to buy for a PC. But I got curious. I didn't have the money then to build a PC so I decided to wait. In that time my brother created an Xbox Live silver account and we were able to update Minecraft.(Yeah we didn't know anything about that lol). So with the game being updates it satisfied my craving for more content in Minecraft.

Anyway I got curious less on how to build a PC and more on what the parts do, and I wanted to get a better understanding of the individual parts and how they work. So I just started watching Youtube videos and hundreds and hundreds of hours of Youtube videos. And roughly 3 years after I started because of Minecraft I was able to build my first PC.
