After getting interested in pc gaming i bought a gaming laptop...needless to say it did alright. I wasn't happy about having to lower graphics to get smooth game play. From that moment on i decided to build my own pc ranging from $1000-1500 at most. As I saved up money the 1080 ti came out and i decided to buy that instead of the 1080 and thats basically how i came to spend 3k instead of $1500. This was my first time building a pc, it was pretty easy. This case doesnt to have alot of cable management space. Plan on adding some more RGB.
