Continuum

My personal build used for everything from gaming, web & graphic design, A/V editing and ordinary everyday use.

This is the current point in this systems evolution, if you could call it that as nothing now is around from when I first started. What at one point started as a prebuilt HP tower from Best Buy in around 2011 has turned into what you see today, though not for long as it's always evolving. What started as a necessity of replacing parts that had died over time turned into a hobby of mine. While many will do completely new builds from time to time, I've mostly stayed with the same ethos of replacing and updating the same system. But isn't that the beauty of a desktop system?

2019 has probably seen the most changes that the system has ever gone through in such a short span as many of the components were really starting to show their age and some just straight up dying and necessitating replacement.
2019 Upgrades:

  • New Ikea Desk [Formerly old wooden computer desk]
  • Arozzi Toretta Gaming Chair (replaced broken basic desk chair)
  • Edifier R1280DB [Replaced Mackie CR3 which died]
  • Coolermaster ML240R [Replaced Thermaltake Water 2.0 120 pump died]
  • Phanteks Eclipse p350X [Formerly Thermaltake Commander MS-II]
  • 1TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 [Formerly 1x Samsung 120GB 840 Evo & 1x Seagate 1TB HDD]
  • XFX Vega 64 [Formerly XFX HD7770]
  • G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB [Upgraded from 8GB Hyper X Fury]
