I used to game on my MacBook Pro 2011 that I installed Windows on, but it's starting to give up on me. This build is mainly for gaming and also homework (mostly gaming). I've been planning this build for quite some time, probably 2 years now. As a 16 year old "Sneakerhead" living in a foreign country (Indonesian, currently living in New York) and likes to game, it's really hard to save money. My parents send me money every month. For some reason this month they sent some money for me to spend for the the next 3 months. The reason I've been planning this for 2 years is because I always fail to save money. Every time a new Jordan release, I drop my money on it. So when my parents send me the money that I will be spending for the next 3 months, I thought it was a good idea to use some of the money to build this PC (only the tower, peripherals not included) and save the rest for the next 3 months and try my best to spend it wisely (I'm not spoiled, if i finish the money before 3 months, they will not send more money). Doing this means I'll have to miss out on some sneakers that is releasing soon, which is not a good thing as a sneakerhead, but on the other hand, I don't want to miss out on upcoming games too.
This PC is doing great so far, it destroyed any game I threw at it. Worth every penny. I tried my best to manage the cables, the case is so small for me to hide the cables, so I just put them to the side and just make sure nothing blocks the air flow from the front to back (only the 24-pin power is in the way)
I know I didn't pay for any of this, but I tried to use the money really wisely, and I think I did a pretty good job.
Why an M-ITX build? to save space, I live in a dorm.
