Wight

I've been wanting to build a computer for a long time, all of my friends game on PC so naturally I wanted too also. By the time I was ready to build pricing was skyrocketed due to the craze of cryptomining. Since prices have returned to somewhat normal and stable, I figured now was the time.

I prefer the clean look of white and wanted to add a complementary color so decided to go with a light blue. I think the color combo works well and since I needed a title I felt it corresponded well to a character in one of my favorite shows, Game of Thrones. So I give to you, Wight. The case is a Fractal Design Meshify C in white. I wanted to eliminate as much black as I reasonably could so I sanded and painted the PSU shroud, the front mesh filter cover, the plexiglass thumb screws and the PCIE covers.

I went as high end as I could because if you're gonna do something, you do it right. Would've gone with a 2080 ti but that was a price I couldn't justify. I have plans in the future to add a second monitor, more storage, and possibly more RAM. Overall I'm very pleased with how this rig turned out and am excited to venture into the world of PC gaming for the first time.
