Just some more progression on my favorite hobby. Home for the summer means more spending money from work and I get to use a better desk and much better chair. Dad cut an old conference table in half to create two unstable desks, so then we drilled a hole for the monitor mount and drilled the desk to the floor (see photos). I'm incredibly happy with my setup and I don't think it could get much better than this!
Got a really good deal on the 1080 Ti which I couldn't pass up, and I had to decide between this and the new NVIDIA GPUs. Upon seeing the announcement of the 2080 and 2080 Ti, I decided the enormous price tag was not worth it, so I'm even happier that I jumped on this deal. Mouse pad was getting worn out, so I replaced it, same for the headphones. Also got sucked into the wonderful and expensive world of r/mechanicalkeyboards, which eventually led to my first custom mechanical keyboard build that I worked on as my summer project. Be careful if you end up there!
My first camera (Canon Rebel T6) was also used on this project. Just learning how to use it but so far so good! May add more pics of just the PC itself later and change the title, had trouble coming up with a good one.
Future purchases (I don't really think they would be considered upgrades at this point) may include the NZXT H200i or Raijintek Ophion cases that I've had my eye on for a long time, different keycaps and case for my keyboard, a laptop stand for my laptop, and a lamp for the desk. Nintendo Switch soon as well!
