So I was a bit late to the gaming PC game... Pardon my redundancy...
First of all, I appreciate you taking the time to read this and I appreciate your input!
Most of these parts were donated from my cousin and friend as they upgraded their rigs.
I purchased the case and CPU brand new with the intentions of running with the integrated graphics until I pulled the trigger on a GPU. A week later my friend gave me his old Radeon 8750 series and I used that for a few weeks before getting frustrated and started to check my local used GPU market.
I ended up finding this beautiful water-cooled 1080 for $250, which dramatically improved my gaming experience!
I don't multitask much on this PC, so the 2200G seems to hold its own. It was the best value CPU for my situation but I intend to upgrade down the road. Any suggestions?
I live in a cold climate and rarely game for more than a couple hours at a time so I haven't seen my CPU go over 40 degrees and GPU over 44 degrees.
All my case fans are white and I like the look of it, but I would like to add some more custom RGB effects. I have my RAM flashing green like a beating heart and my motherboard flashes slowly and mimics a person's breath. I like keeping the effects along the line of it being a living thing. Any creative ways to improve this?
