[Build Log] First Build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey, ya'll :3

Background

First time builder here. I've been a gamer for a long time, mostly console. As far as desktop PCs go, I used to own a Sony VAIO that I used to play Half Life 2 and Doom 3 with when those games were first released back in the mid-2000s. I really enjoyed how my PC's graphics capabilities far exceeded the graphics capabilities of any console out at the time. Well, that was a long time ago and since I really don't use that old Sony VAIO anymore I thought I'd put together a newly built PC--with updated parts--for contemporary gaming purposes. I'd like to get back into high-end PC gaming. The only PC gaming I really do these days is on a two year old laptop that isn't very impressive.

It is if he is serious about being an enthusiast...

That's a solid starting point far from modest. Modest would be a 4770k on a midrange z87 with 16gb and a 290.

Thanks for the comments! Yeah, I guess it is a bit more of a high-end starting point. biggrin.gif
