It started when I built an overkill PC for myself — a strange empty feeling came with that, like What now? I had spent all this money & built a monster I don't really need. The Prestige of the High End just wasn't the thrill it was supposed to be. What you see in my PCPartPicker career is an attempt to recapture the fundamentals & make the most out of what is available, however mundane it might be. This has made the process much more compelling for me personally.
What I like to see most in your completed builds are the unique features you plan or improvise yourself. You can burn piles of money just to execute other people's concepts, but the builders who inspire me are creative, resourceful & economical. Make it your own!
PS. You can fit more fans.
