So, what happens when a lifelong console peasant decides to build a gaming PC? His world-view is turned on its head!
A good couple of hours of my day yesterday were spent putting this thing together, and it was actually leagues easier than I thought it would be.If you had told me in 2013 that you could build a PC for the same price as a console and have it absolutely stomp it, PLUS not have to pay $60 a year to play with my friends, I would have saved myself a whole lot of trouble (and money).
I would have never imagined how satisfying and rewarding it was to hit that power button and have it boot the first time with no issues. I must have danced for a good three hours straight after setting up the OS.
What do you guys think for a first build? Let me know! I'm leaving my console days behind, and I need some friends on Steam.
