Barad-dûr

First build, hoping to get 5+ years out of this rig. Just gaming. Not much room for upgrades, not planning on any. When this PC becomes a dinosaur I will build a whole new one. Really happy with everything, the graphics card is great and I don't try to overclock so locked chip and board are fine; my benchmarks are outstanding for gaming. At first I bought a brand name desktop to try to get into PC gaming again, what an idiot move that was, it was full of bloat and crashed all the time and I had to have it repaired and then it broke again about a month after getting it back! Had no clue about anything computer, but with a little research and a bunch of online videos it was easy to build my own. If I can do it, anyone can. The case has a cheap plexi window, I installed one solid white LED strip, looks clean and simple. No frills, all value. Building your own PC is the only way to go!
