My relatively cheap gaming & streaming PC

The CPU was overclocked to 3.9Ghz for like a 6 months, but later I decided to set it back on the stock clock speeds for "longevity", I only left the memory on 3200Mhz through XMP. The GPU was set on 2050 on the core and 4100 on the memory, but every time I close the EVGA software, it brings the settings back to default, so I just left it the way it was... 😃 I just don't care anymore 😃
I play different types of games, but the lowest I have seen so far was 80fps when it's not locked to 60fps. (Every game I play is set on max settings, 1080p, 60Hz). I'm planning to buy high refresh rate monitor soon, so I'll upload new photos here when this happens! And maybe some benchmarks...
Otherwise this PC is still a 1080p beast as I intended it to be when I was building it in 2018!
My peripherals are Razer and actually I'm not their biggest fan... They are just OK for me! And only they were meeting my needs! I was looking for a good mech. keyboard, good mouse, both with RGB and wireless headset from the same brand (JUst to know! The build quality of the headset is not that great as the HyperX cloud's!! The plastic parts are very cheap with crackling noises! There's metal parts too, but no problems there! And also I'm not a fan of the RGB on the headset but... they were on a deal so...).
I'm just this type of person that likes his stuff to be from one brand and that's why I bought everything from Razer.
The good thing about dealing with ONLY razer's peripherals is that you need ONLY their software! No other bloatware like iCue, Aura sync and Mystic light (for example) at the same time and having to deal with them just to make the RGB effects working.
Thooo... I only use static colors (red and white) so they can fit with my hardware which is not RGB, but regular static LED's... except the memory! They are the only RGB part inside my case.
