Have had interest in building my own pc for about six years now. The interest got a bit heavier in about '14-'15 when my current pc, which I got new in 2008, started showing serious signs of old age (walked in one day to it checking its AARP account and filling out withdrawal forms for its 401k). Found this amazing website early September 2016 and have been learning and changing my builds ever since.

I plan on doing some hardcore gaming just for fun. And on the side I really wanna get into Twitch streaming and capturing for Youtube.

If anyone is curious, here is what Im currently working with:
