Goldilocks

Overview

This PC was built to be well balanced for 1080p gaming - not too powerful, not too expensive, and easily controlled temperatures. The GPU shortage didn't help with pricing so I had to compromise on some parts in an effort to keep overall build price down.

Check out my other builds, Beige and Black and Mini Mesh Box!
