My 2018 Gaming PC Build (austingaming123)

by AustinRDavert


There’s something so satisfying about building a PC! It’s something that is so special for me, and I really want to share my story about pursuing your passions, even when you’re faced with challenges. This is my second personal build that I've done! I wanted to go with something more unique with the micro-ATX case. This PC will be just my size! (literally) Whenever I do these builds, I really hope to inspire others to go after whatever passion you might have, and to not let anything stop you. I have a disability called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which causes fragile bones and my short stature. Technology is near and dear to my heart, and has always fascinated me. This was one of my biggest projects to date, and this is the most powerful PC that I’ve ever built! I’m hoping to start my own YouTube/Twitch channel one day to share my passion with others! I hope you guys like the new build! :D Specs- Phanteks Evolv m-ATX ASUS ROG Strix Z370G Intel Core i7-8700K Corsair H115i PRO RGB 280mm Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 16gb, 3000mhz EVGA GTX 1070TI FTW2 EVGA SuperNova 750 P2 PSU EVGA P2 PSU Cable Set Samsung 960 EVO NVMe m.2 500gb Seagate 4TB HDD Corsair ML140 White LED (x5) Windows 10 Home 64 bit (USB) ASUS ROG Swift PG248Q 180hz, 1ms, 1080p

I am going to get a gtx 1070ti for my i5 8600k. And also is that you in the picture? If it is you hat proves to show that anyone can build a PC!

AustinRDavert submitter 1 Build 6 points 12 months ago

Yep! It's me in the photos! I have a disability, but I'm 19 years old. I love building PC's! :) The 1070TI is an amazing card! You will love it!
