It is big and white and blue and i shall call him "Comrade" and he shall be mine
This build is my first ever and was completely from the ground up, didnt have any of the parts pre-build.
Total cost of everything after holiday deals and mail in rebates came to around 1800.00 (Ram was 54.00 for all those coulda saved money on ram types and for 16gb doesnt get much better)
I will be using this machine to work as well as game. Photoshop, Illustrator, as well as Indesign and some minor video editing from time to time. I chose 16 gb of ram because in the adobe design suite you can optimize how much ram each program uses so i can fully utilize all of it when rendering and editing.
Critique and tips are welcome... Im also thinking on sleeving my cables so if any of you have any great kits or tips on that i would greatly appreciate it.
Have to give a shoutout to IamApropos for his help with troubleshooting and allowing me to pick his brain on anything i thought i needed to know
Ohh i named it comrade because it accompanies me into BATTLE! On the internet machine device...
