Description

Since my boyfriend was always playing games on console, I decided to build him a PC to game on so we can play together!

Parts listed there and also Intel i5 7500 quad core @ 3.00GHz Corsair 2x6GB of ram (in vengeance blue led) Tough power rgb 650w gold psu Gigabyte GeForce gtx 1060 3GB

Had alot of trouble with the wiring and wanted to just throw the thing off the balcony at some points but i'm really glad i knuckled down and built this for him!

Lucky fella! Gorgeous build! +1!

My wife doesn't game, but she is very understanding of my hobby and never forbids me from enjoying something I love. In fact she encourages it!

I, too, would like to know the specs on your personal rig.

Inwin 303 master race! My GF and I both have builds in 303s.

Damn that's sweet. Can you write a book titled "How to Win & Keep a Gamer"? You should. lol

This is a refreshing post. So my wife would prefer if i would just throw all of my builds out the window regardless so i feel you on that part but +1 for wanting to share the gaming experience and being awesome enough to do this for him. What games do you two share in common. Maybe I can get some common ground with my significant other so I don't have to worry about my babies well being when I am not at home? ;)

Just saw your post on /r/pcmasterrace :) awesome build btw!

Question: why the overpriced SSD? Also, what are your own PC's specs?!

Relationship goals here :)

Just to point it out, I think you got the wrong motherboard in the part list, it doesn't match the pictures (and the one in the pictures makes more sense too).

ItzNemoh 1 point 7 months ago

Great build but, instructions unclear, my little Willie got stuck between the balcony and the sliding door, he has been in constant pain since this was built. Pls help

thugzbunnyyy submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

PositivelyPhil 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Even though that z270 mobo is overkill for a locked cpu this is pretty solid. Good job.

Edit: Though you already suggested "partner" which is good and there's also "spouse" for a married couple which I'm not saying they are. Though if OP was offended or just preferred it because some of us weren't trying to use a non-specific gender than they'll let us know.

Though I wouldn't over analyze a title that mentions "boyfriend" already. If OP is not happy with the comments, they can report their reasons about the situation and the staff will let us know what is appropriate and what isn't appropriate to comment.

I'm just stating my two cents here too. I also didn't say they were a couple. Next time I'll be very specific. I made my comment because it's OK that others are trying to include both he/she in case they were incorrect to begin with. No harm done here.
