Description

This pc will be for gaming. I'll be trying Destiny 2, Overwatch, and PUBG soon. I just finished building today, 8/31/2017. So, I still have to download drivers and games, but I thought I would take a break to post some pics and relax.

It's been a journey building my first gaming pc, but I'm ecstatic about it. Ups and downs. Major down when I received a resealed Gigabyte Aorus 1080 TI Xtreme with random brackets, hard drive bays, and an Asus motherboard cd inside, instead of my new gpu (photos included). Amazon helped me recover from my stroke though, and I got my gpu a few days later.

Once I got my gpu, it was a breeze to finish the build. The pc is fast, and it's not even overclocked. I am loving the look and feel so far too. I love the DXRacer chair, and I love the Logitech speakers as well. I also handled the cable management inside the PC and under my desk. My OCDness is happy with that :)

I'm still waiting on my Destiny 2 Deathadder Elite mouse, but it should be here soon. I'm using just a basic Microsoft wireless mouse for the time being.

Anyway, I hope you like the build. This site helped me out a lot when looking for parts. So, I hope my positive review about all the parts I bought will help others too.

Thank you

Awesome!

But why is your cooler sideways? Lol

Thanks! It was just easier to put it in that way with the radiator and fan position. I also thought it was a cleaner look with the tubing straight across.
