Earlier this year, I built a custom gaming PC. I like gaming in my downtime, and I'd always wanted to challenge myself to build a computer. There were many lessons learned and a lot of cussing, but in the end, I succeeded.
Now, that gaming PC is my main computer, at least until Apple makes some Apple Silicon announcements.
Instead of listing out the different parts and pieces that I used, I thought it'd be good to link to NZXT's BLD lineup. You can completely customize the build, but let NZXT do all of the frustrating parts for you. The company even recently launched a Starter PC line, with builds starting as low as $699.
