    Living room PC complete!



    It’s hooked up via lan but it’s a perfect lan party PC so I keep the antenna on it



    Most of it was of used parts of Reddit and Black Friday deals. This PC is pretty quiet and is exactly what I wanted to build for gaming in the living room. A Logitech keyboard / touchpad combo and Xbox controller are what I use to interface with it. I know it’s overkill on storage but I’m happy to not touch it for a few years :)

    Here’s Build list:

    Just coming across the first page and will have to read through the rest.

    Badass build!

    When I was at college, one of the kids in my freshman dorm had built a pc that was liquid cooled and I always thought it was the most badass thing. He used it for gaming, mainly wow (not my cup of tea but to each their own) and battlefield. Seeing battlefield on his pc is what got me hooked on the series initially.

    I only game on console -xbox- and usually just battlefield 4 these days. I always wanted to build a pc and start gaming on there but I have enough expensive hobbies and time is pretty limited with my two kiddos.

    What are your goto games?

    Hey! So I play halo with cold high school friends and play Skyrim, fallout, and satisfactory. Age of empires is what got me back into gaming after I stopped back in 2016

    I’m enjoying the gaming now as it’ll go away in a few months when our baby comes!

    I should have done this so long ago. It’s dead silent and I can print and be in the room!
