So, I began PC gaming in about 2015, and I was using a prebuilt HP desktop with a GTX 750 Ti at the time. I decided that I needed more of a kick to play more modern games, so I upgraded to a GTX 1060 6GB, and eventually to a GTX 1080.
Once I got to the point of me having a GTX 1080, I decided that I had enough and I would upgrade from the 4th gen i5 CPU in the prebuilt tower to an entirely new system. (Later on, I would replace the 1080 with a 1080 Ti)
It started with the GTX 1080 and it really just went from there. I kept adding on parts to the build until it's at the current spot where it is. After the initial build was complete, I added on an M.2 SSD, a GTX 1080 Ti, two red LED case fans, an LED light strip, and an ethernet card.
I bought the GTX 1080 Ti off of a seller on eBay for a reasonable price.
So far, it absolutely has been handling every single game I throw at it with ease, even with maxed out settings.
I'm absolutely blown away with the sheer power of this rig. It has been able to render videos very quickly, that puts my old 4th gen i5 to shame.
All in all, I feel like I did a good job :)
