This is my 2nd Pay It Forward Build
Without going deep into a backstory, I have not known Jay all of our lives but it definitely can feel that way sometimes. It has actually only been since 2003 or so, a few years outside of graduating from high school. He is my brother from another mother through and through now, nothing less. I have always tried to help him when I could, whether he wanted it or not.
He never owned any full custom computers, just hand me downs and OEM builds so I decided to help him out as soon as I could. He’s going from a AMD A6 APU to a FX-9590, 6GB of ram to 16GB, among other awesome parts for a full upgrade. Which includes his first SSD, which saves lives in my opinion, it did mine, it’s hard to accept the past of HDD’s once you own a SSD. This build is something I felt he really needed to do some of things he loves to do but can be a struggle on a low budget computer. He likes to create music, edit videos and game so this build is perfect.
Jay has always been a gamer though before anything, first gaming experience was back in the Atari days. 1984 playing River Raid and Astrosmash with his dad. Then moved on to the Nintendo with Mario Bros and it continued from there owning many consoles to game on and of course PC gaming. He also hung out in arcades a lot, so he would save all of his lunch money from school to have quarters to play his favorite games. He did indeed have a new PC experience recently which his previous A6 build but nothing like what was built for him.
The build reveal was perfect and exactly what I expected. Many feels,
I had to step away for a moment because the thought of someone caring this much about me was emotional
Alright, enough boring you with the details, I hope you enjoy the pictures, thanks for checking it out.
I would like to thank AMD, Asus, Sapphire, Corsair, @Seagate, @tORN_TV, @Walking_Corpse9 and @NBroadsword for the help on this build. It is appreciated immensely.
I've never had anyone who genuinely cares that much. And I was at loss for words and I had something in my contacts (that I don't wear) I had to wipe out my eye.
-Update- 290x turned faulty and other things, gave him my Sapphire R9 285
-Update 2- He recently upgrade to Sapphire RX 480 8GB
