Daddy Issues

TL;DR My dad upgraded my CPU and GPU so I upgraded his PC. This PC was built in December of 2017.

Look I'm not good with names, but this one was funny. Over the past couple of years my dad has basically upgraded my PC for me. Starting with getting me an i7 6700k Christmas of 2017 and continuing with buying me a GTX 1080 for my birthday a few months later. I had been planning on getting a 1080ti once I was able to afford it, so I kept saving and used the money to upgrade his machine. I probably could have saved some money, but I wanted it to look nice.

My dad was previously running an i7 3930k with 32gb of DDR3 ram, and an HD 7770. He uses his PC for work and relies on more cores over clock speed, so the R7 1700 was the clear choice for me. He's not much of a gamer but has expressed interest in VR so my RX 480 that I had before he got me a 1080 will hopefully be enough to satisfy any gaming urges he has. I wish I could have gotten more, but even with black friday and cyber monday deals I only able to afford 16gb of RAM. He later bought another matching kit to total 32gb, as well as the 1TB 960 Evo.
