re: Stoked to Build My First PC in Years! - PurpleandGold Motown
Yeah. I didn't have much experience. I used to build them in high school. That was a long time ago. I used pcpartpicker to put together my list and watched a YouTube video from Paul's hardware while I was putting it together. ...

Helping An Elderly Lady with Cancer (In Remission) Build a Gaming PC - PurpleandGold Motown

re: Stoked to Build My First PC in Years! - PurpleandGold Motown
Eventually I'll buy another Big SSD, but I was on a budget and got a good deal on the HDD. I have a total of six 2.5 slots (or two 2.5 and two 3.5) in there without moving anything around.
