Introduction: Build a Gaming Computer, or Learn the Basic Parts
Carson and I are the only ones in the family that love technology, we've built a lot of projects together but this is a favorite one. This gaming computer is Carson's pride and joy. It can handle all of his gaming, streaming & recording needs, the FPS is top notch and the graphic quality is excellent. If you are a gamer give this build a try. If you aren't in the market for a computer, this 7 minute video shows you every component in the computer. It's a great way to get familiar with the basic parts and introduce you to computers. Fair warning, you'll spend $1200 to copy this build but you'd pay WAY more than that if you bought this computer pre-built at a store. I picked and ordered the parts and Carson did most of the assembly. This was his 14th birthday present and I went big because we share the family geek gene and it was cool to show him how to build his first custom rig. No one else in this family knows a RAM stick from a processor but they chip in money, very appreciated.
