Story of this pc: I had a pre built, "salvaged" the SSD, HDD and the GPU and sold everything else that I were able to, I then bought the rest of the parts that I needed and here we are. I intend to overclock my CPU when I get a decent cooler, at the moment the GPU is overclocked so the core clock reaches 1911MHz and the memory reaches 2227MHz.
What I use it for: I use the pc for gaming and sometimes a bit of streaming, I play games like Overwatch, Destiny 2, GTA V, Subnautica and a lot more.
Why did I choose these parts? CPU: i7-9700K - I found a decent deal for it on the used market which I then bought. Motherboard: Z390 aorus elite - I picked it mainly because it has some of the best VRM's at that price point which is nice if you want to overclock. CPU cooler: 212 evo - the reason I bought it as mentioned above was because I needed a quick temporary cooler. RAM: 16GB CL14 G.Skill Ripjaws 2666MHz - I had the RAM sticks laying around and since I'm using an intel CPU the speed wouldn't be as important as if I had chosen an AMD CPU so the RAM were a decent choice. Storage and GPU: 256 GB Hynix NVME SSD, 1 TB Toshiba HDD with 7200 RPM and a GTX 1070 Sapphire GPU - these were from the pre-built I had, saved some money by using them instead of buying new non-OEM parts. Case: P350x by Phanteks - This is a great case, the airflow is great and it's easy to built in, I were close to picking a Meshify C over it though. PSU: RM650x - Steady PSU got everything you need, couldn't find a used G2 but this choice were far from bad, I picked the 650W model so I wouldn't have to get a new PSU if I ever decide to upgrade and get a new GPU. PC fans: 3 LL120 fans -
BeCaUsE oF rGB, the performance is bad but they look great! They were on sale for what would be $40 so I thought "Why not".
*Disclaimer the SSD and GPU aren't the exact models on the list, since they´re OEM parts they weren't on PCPP and I proceeded to choose models that had the same features and looked somewhat the same.
