So basically this kinda a sad story.

This PC build is in memory of my brother you can skip the first two paragraph's if you don't want to read my story

My brother died exactly 2 months ago (age 20). We played a lot of games together, Like CS:GO, and Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (he was basically a god in that game). we grew up playing on the playstation 1, and PC with games like Tomb Raider and Harry Potter. After a while this converted to of course Runescape and WoW. in that time he got a Xbox 360, and played Red dead redemption and homefront (iknow Ha). after that we got obsessed with Dead Island, first played it on my crappy laptop. but than we both got a PC and after dead island we got to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (erea 2012). we were both gifted in that game, but he was a god in that game, he was rekking everyone with an ez K/D of 50/3. he became one of the best players in the EU.

all fun for us, but than the Mordhau (alpha) was coming out (you can see it in my picture of my pc). 3 weeks before the release of the alpha build he died. he never got the play the game. still to this day it hurts me that he could never play the game, not even once.

So short Story, i got his PC. but what to do with 2 PC's

His Build: intel I7 4930k LGA 2011 Asus Rampage IV Formula x7 Corsair H100i Kingston 240gb SSDNow Kingston 60gb SSDNow 2x 500GB HDD 7200rpm Gigabyte GTX 760 2gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 16gb Cooler Master CM 690 III Corsair CXM 750W TP-Link 300 mbit/s Razer Deathadder 2013 crap keyboard Steelseries QcK XL Kingston Hyperx Cloud Iiyama GB2488HSU-B2 144hz LG Flatron 24 inch

My Build: Intel I5 6600K MSI B150 Gaming M3 CM Hyper 412s 120GB SSDNow 2TB Seagate BarraCuda 7200rpm 1TB WD 7200RPM Gigabyte GTX 770 2gb 16GB DDR3 Sharkoon Tauron CM 600B TP-Link 450 mbit/s Razer Deathadder Chroma sharkoon keyboard Kingston Hyperx Cloud BenQ XL2411 144hz LG 24MP59G-P 75hz

So Yea we had a lot of the same.

as you can see on my list what i kept, but i also bought some new stuff. -Corsair K95 RGB mx brown -Razer Deathadder Elite -Logitech Z333 -Steelseries QcK XXL -triple monitor vesamount (assmann) -ASUS GTX 1070 Strix's OC version -4TB Seagate Barracude 7200 RPM

after a few days the hole PC was ready. it is nice and fast. and the 6 core i7 gives a lot of room. but this was never worth the price i needed to pay for a pc like this. also i don't know what to do with a second 144hz monitor, i mean its nice but i need a third to use it.

i am still going to make something to remember him. like a painting that i am going to make out of wood, and put some stuff in there that was his. with his mouse, headphone, sdd and the I7 4930k when i upgrade, but ofc a photo of him

PS: i didn't know the case was that dirty, haha. Edit: Spelling mistakes, i am dutch

Sorry for your loss. The PC is a nice memorial.

If you don't mind me asking, how did he die?

80sMacTonight submitter 1 Build 18 points 18 months ago

Pretty much, Don't do hard drugs, even if it is once. you never know how your body reacts

jenxoff 1 Build 2 points 10 months ago

No offense, so you're saying he took one hard drug and died from it?

plzDonateAgame 4 points 5 months ago

Seems like it. :/ Don't do drugs in general. It's a waste of money and it's really stupid unless you need it for medical conditions.

i lost my brother too when he was 20 and i was 21 at that time. we love gaming. mostly counterstrike warcraft 3 and our first mmo "ragnarok" online. i cant tell you how fond those memories are man. even when were not playing well be up all night talking about what to do the next day where to level up. i feel your pain. its been 13yrs now . it does get better but i just wish that he can play the games that im playing with the current gen pc with absulute power. i remember playing on a crt monitor with 512mb ram. with dial up internet. sigh good ol days. i will forever miss him. so heres what i did so that even when hes already gone that he can still play with me. he has a nickname growing up "jeddo". so in every game i play thats my ign jeddo7884. his nickname and bday. were in this together buddy. hook me up with a shoutout too on my build man.

That mouse are not so good...

80sMacTonight submitter 1 Build 3 points 18 months ago

what is rong with a deathadder?

rroguet -2 points 18 months ago

The build quality

80sMacTonight submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Never had a problem with them until i got salty. they only die cause people get salty and smash it. it wouldn't have a good reputation if that was the case

note: this is one of the only kind of mouse that fits my hand perfectly.
