Some fun things are happening soon! Decided rather than going out and buying a pre-built computer, I would have some fun and build one myself. So the pieces are finally starting to come in. Some pieces are back-ordered while things like the GPU will have to wait for another paycheck but at the end of the day, it should be a solid performer.

Here are the specs.

CPU - Ryzen 7 3700X
CPU Cooler - NZXT Kraken X63 Liquid Cooler
MoBo - Asus ROG Strix X570-E
Memory - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200
Storage - Intel 660p 2 TB M.2 SSD
Video Card - Asus GeForce RTX 2070 Super
Case - NZXT H710
PSU - Corsair 750W Fully Modular 80+ Gold

My own builds have been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember. I upgraded my GPU back in November from a 1080ti to a RTX 2080 Ti K|NGP|N Gaming. The most I have ever spent on a video card. LOL

Built a new PC for my son this past Christmas using a Ryzan5 and Asus ROG Strix MB. Dropped in a M.2 SSD for his primary and that thing is fast! Total load time for Win10 from start of install to final reboot login to desktop was under 5 minutes from a USB3.0 jump drive. Boot time on a clean Win10 install from pushing the power on button to desktop was 5 seconds.
Have fun!!!!!
