My grandparents got me a Dell XPS 15 9550 Laptop as an early Christmas gift/late birthday gift when I was around 10 years old. It served me well for 3 years, as I really only played Minecraft and Roblox. But then at age 12 I started to play Rainbow Six siege, Fortnite, and csgo. This laptop, couldn't handle a steady 60fps at 720p low settings. It would burn my fingers off also. I'm not sure if the components were too old or if there was a need for more thermal paste, but I didn't want to mess with it as taking apart laptops kinda get me worried as if I was gonna mess something up. So I saved up my money, and after 2 years of dreaming to build a PC and enter the true PC master race, I did it. I built my first PC at the age 13.
I built it around mid to late October 2018, took me only a day to build. I knew exactly what I was doing. Best of all, I built it with my dad, who I never really hang out with that often mainly due to work. Everything went smoothly, and I had an amazing time. I couldn't imagine how fun it was.
I wanted to game at 1440p 165 fps so I chose those parts. I plan on getting the ducky one 2 minis, a new mic, a 240hz monitor, a WD BLACK 1TB NVMe SSD, and 10th gen Intel CPUs, a bigger PSU, some better headphones and a new desk setup.
I would like to say big thanks to my family, my grandparents, and mom and dad for supporting me with this project. Thank you, dad, for building with me :)
I named this build Ice Cream because I love Ice Cream.
Edit: 4/2/19: The photo of my setup shows a different keyboard because I sold my Corsair k70 (which is a total rip-off, the quality sucks compared to the Ducky One 2 Mini) I am borrowing an Alienware keyboard until my new Ducky One 2 Mini shows up. (My brother has one and I love it).
