This was my first build. But to be completely honest, my boyfriend did most (pretty much all) of the building. I purchased the parts (with a few of his suggestions) and supervised during the building. I helped where I could ¯_(ツ)_/¯. I planned a Moira (Overwatch) theme before hand, it influenced some of the parts I decided on. I also bought a Moira sticker I was planning on putting on the side of the case. I decided not to so that I can make it Legend Of Zelda themed instead later on B)
I previously had an Asus gaming laptop that I had purchased open box from Best Buy. I got a whole year of heavy binge gaming into it and it started to struggle. I wanted to build a PC but felt like it was an impossible feat. That **** is expensive and I don't know what i'm doing. Then my boyfriend showed me pcpartpicker and I was like "ooooOOhh ok". So it started and was supposed to be spread out over the course of a few months, slowly purchasing parts but instead I sold my entire childhood in 90's video games to a shop and bought every part in about three weeks time.
It will mainly be used for gaming. So far it has been able to handle every game and is a cute as heck little cube. So proud of her.
