Sorry for giving my PC such an overused name. This is my first build and I'm pretty proud of it. I'm only 18 and I learned so much from this project, that I've decided to study computer engineering or science. It all started as a hobby, but it has escalated to something more. When the next gen consoles came out, I was outraged by the price and my PC was pretty good, so I decided to just buy a graphics card (R9 270X); which was way cheaper. I continued to do research and watch videos, and I ended up making this a hobby. During the summer, I got a job and decided to build my own new computer from scratch. I worked a couple months and bought the parts, one by one. I currently use my computer for anything from gaming to using programs that require a lot of horse power. I'm currently a high school student studying engineering and using programs such as SolidWorks and MasterCAM. SolidWorks, especially, requires a lot of CPU horse power when using Finite Element Analysis and Photoview 360 rendering. I have to be honest and it performs better than expected. I can do pretty intensive Finite Element Analyses and realistic renderings of my different projects in no time. Complex parts with multiple features, and extensive assemblies featuring multiple parts are not a problem at all anymore. What started as a simple project, ended having me help friends fix and build computers under much more restricting budgets; all of them are happy with their builds and I'm proud of my decision to become part of the computer building community. I might save some cash and buy another GTX 980 and go SLI. I might also do some case modding, fortunately, I have a couple of CNC mills and lathes available in my engineering class and my engineering teacher will probably not mind at all. If you have any suggestions and/or advise, please let me know, thank you.
