The last time I built a desktop PC was somewhere in the early 1990's, A lot has changed since then. I needed a desktop for image editing. The program I use makes heavy use of core's and thread's. That led me to the Ryzen 9 3950x. As I started researching the build I found myself enjoying the process tremendously. The build ended up a bit overkill for it's intended purpose. I ended up with what could also be a pretty decent gaming PC. I am generally pretty bad at games, but I may give some a try :).
