The Wife and i9

This was a project of my wife’s. She got sick and tired of a slow netbook she used so I said to go and build a computer. Just stay under $2000. She ordered the phanteks case and dvd drive and keyboard. After that, a switch flipped and I “had” to get involved. The price more than doubled and we now have what this beast is today.

We both love this machine. Haven’t overclocked yet, might down the road. Runs everything I throw at it on ultra at least at 1440. I got a deal on the graphics card I couldn’t pass up, but will get the 2080ti when the price is right.

This was both of ours first build. We started on the first week of January, and had it running by the end of March. Everything went pretty smooth, but with a ton of research. It uses rgb lighting, but also looks fantastic if we choose not to. I was hoping for the best of both worlds.

It POSTed first time for me! ???? My wife and I were stoked. It was like a dream come true.

The only thing it needs yet is the cable mod cables. They just shipped yesterday due to back order.
