I first started tinkering with computers when I was about 12 years old. I never did anything special with them; just took components out looked at them and put them back together. I was a very avid gamer. I enjoyed the ease of buying a console and not having to worry about putting a full computer together.
The summer of 2013 came along and with it was announcements of the next gen consoles. I thought should I buy a new console or should I just build a gaming PC. I chose the latter and haven't looked back since. I found PCPP and thought I hit the jackpot. I felt like a kid in the candy store as I'm looking at all the options and all the performance reviews.
I never knew I would enjoy doing this as much as I have, but there is just nothing like knowing the hard work and time dedication has paid off when everything works and you're enjoying your new machine that has everything you want and nothing you don't need.
If you're interested in any of the part lists I have completed please send me a message I am always more than happy to talk PCs.
