It’s hard to be in PC gaming if you don’t have a gaming PC rig. I don’t current own a PC worthy of gaming in 2016. My MacBook Pro is about 8 years old now and though it works fine for just everyday stuff and surfing the internet, it’s not good for gaming in today’s world of gaming. I’ve been out of gaming for all of 2015. Been thinking about getting a new PC for quite a while now, months it seems but just couldn’t decide. Somehow after binge watching a lot of YouTube vids if I remember, I thought it might be a good idea to maybe build my own. But then I didn’t know much about building a PC let alone a gaming rig. I’ve never messed around with attempting to build a PC before either.
Over the course of the last month I’ve watched quite a bit of YouTube getting caught up on just how to go about building a PC and gaming rig watching all kinds of builds from many the YouTube personalities, some quite popular as well. I enjoyed watching a bunch of videos by Carey Holzman who now also does the DIY Garage for NeweggTV and a pleasure to watch build gaming rig and learn from. I’ve learned quite a bit in the process, but I’m still learning. Learning something new is always interesting. But I think I have the confidence that I can build my own and likely learn more in the process as well. If anything it seems like something fun to do being apart of gaming.
So after watching many builds I set aside part picking the parts for my own future gaming rig. I decided I didn’t exactly want a cheap PC. I wanted a good gaming rig that kicks ass, with good quality parts and can play anything on the market smoothly. I wanted a gaming PC where I’m not playing catchup with todays games and something that will last quite a few years without needing to upgrade much. As well something thats easily expandable into the future if I needed to upgrade. At this point I think this project will cost me more than I thought when I started out, but for my hobby I’ll be happy about it if it works out.
After picking out the parts for my Ultimate Gaming Rig on PCPartPicker this is what it looks like so far below on the link. I’m flexible in making changes if possible. Though the core parts I likely want in my build for my gaming be
