+ Total (United States):
Hello! I am (or was) 15 at the time of building this machine. I came into this community a little over a year ago with the mindset of I was going to learn nearly everything there is to know (which seemed like a lot at the time but now that I look at it, it's really not that much) to satisfy myself. I wanted a gaming/schoolwork rig to get away from my PS4 console which I felt was holding me back in terms of frame rate and usefulness. I put together this machine based off of parts I was referenced to by the guys at the PCPARTPICKER discord and by the knowledge I had at the time. Looking back now I definitely overpaid for the GPU (GTX 970) which I bought used and the fan sounds super loud,which I think is because the fan is bad, but the temperatures are not affected by the bad fan. Overall the building experience was super fun and exciting. Comment what you think! :). Once again the only negative I have about this PC is the GPU fan makes it super obnoxious if I'm not wearing headphones because of how loud it is.
