Built a Gaming PC!

You guys don’t understand how long I have been trying to do this. Ever since I graduated high school, I started investing more and more money into games, but not enough into a quality gaming device.

In a computer programming competition, I won a laptop before I went to compete and it wasn’t optimized to play games such as GTA IV or Sims 3 for its graphics card wasn’t being recognized for those games at the time. But knowing me, I work with what I had and used it to play the games anyway. In the end, I ended with a fried motherboard, which I later fixed but broke just about 3 months later from dropping it from the top of a bunk bed.

This was my freshman year Fall 2013.

Now its Fall 2016 and I am finally placing my hands on my PC games again. You don’t know how long it has been for me to play any of my own games. I have been dying since then to play any. Not that I am not addicted or anything, but sometimes I like to escape and indulge my time on games when I am stressed or when I have some free time on my hands.

People think building a PC is hard, but thanks to Google, I can find all the tutorials and sources I need in building one. And also because I am in a tech-related field, I know a lot of people who I can simply ask for advice on building PCs.

To be more accurate, I started the process of looking for parts to buy for my PC build back in the summer of 2015 right before I went to China. But I told myself that this isn’t the right time to build a computer for I was 1. About to go abroad 2. I need to save money to support my time abroad 3. I won’t be able to use the desktop for its sitting right at home in DC and 4. By the time I come back home from China, an entirely new set of parts will be released, which would be a better fit for newer games. So I gave up on it at that time.

But as soon as I came back, I told myself “This is the summer that it will happen. I don’t care what will come about, but I will make it happen.” I am so happy I delayed my project till after the summer for by the time August came around, a new family of graphics cards came to the market. In case you don’t know, graphics cards serve the purpose for running particularly not only games, but software needing high performance such as photo-editing software along with using multiple computer screens.

Now you’re probably wondering “How much did I pay to buy all my parts for my computer build?” Great Question. I built a mid-end gaming desktop, which I am still calculating the total which came up to a little under $1,050. But with the peripherals (mouse, keyboard, monitor, cables, etc.), those parts came up to I believe $170~. Expensive? Yes, but by building a computer, you know its parts that acquire to YOUR needs and is most likely to last longer than a store-bought PC. On top of that, after maybe 3-4 years, you can upgrade and swap out the graphics card and/or the cpu which will optimize in performance and save you a bit more money rather than just buying an entirely new PC to build.

Lower ending PCs (which to me personally is not worth it if you want something that can run everything at max capacity) can be around $600-800 or maybe even less depending on what kind of parts the users is buying. Higher end PCs can be around $1500+. Lots of PC gurus build monster ones for their own personal preferences. But for myself, I am just going to do some simple gaming and video editing here and there.  

Nevertheless, I am happy. My PC is up and running I still have a few things to set up. Soon, I will share some cool projects I am working on.

You stroll into your 9 to 5 office job on the 11th floor of your company building, greeting your coworkers as you make your way to your beloved cubicle. Nothing out of the ordinary happened this morning besides the fact that your brush almost broke when you were trying to untangle your messy hair. You hold breakfast, a hot pocket, in one hand, and thick file folders in the other. You volunteered to take charge of the advertising team for the new product that your company plans to launch in two months.

Once you settle down, you grab your portable touch screen device and head to the Head of the department’s office.

You enter the oak door to see Park Seojoon transfer his belongings from his desk to crates.

“You’re leaving?”
