My First PC Build

Jumped onto the PC bandwagon real late, but after moving across the country I figured it was the best time to build one to stay in touch with some friends.

I'm really into cars and like when they are built with a clean aesthetic, so that's what I had in mind for this PC build. After narrowing down the parts lists, I started buying up everything I could at the beginning of 2021. I got lucky and was able to snag a 3070 FE on BestBuy for MSRP. After some setbacks with parts delays and being sent used/incorrect parts, I had everything collected and ready to build.

During the build process I was on a Zoom call with a friend to make sure things were going well and to just be chatting. Overall, this was a great learning experience and truly exciting (and infuriating). It's primarily used to play games and edit photos on and i couldn't be happier with it. This definitely won't be my last build!
