Two weekends ago, Chris came over and helped me build my very first PC! I had a laptop which lasted me almost 6 years. Haha isn't that crazy? My sister took her computer when she moved out so I had to rely on my phone for internet for a whole week which wasn't nice.
With help from this website and reddit/r/buildapc Chris and I complied a list of parts in two days. We got almost everything on sale too :).
Processor. Chris said something about it having 3.5 million transistors.
Motherboard. Crazy right?
NZXT phantom case. I wanted this in pink but Chris threw a fit >:(
Messy but I'll clean it up later
Hello Kitty decal
Pazuzu! He normally doesn't jump onto tables and desks so I placed him there.
So, the whole building process took us ~6 hours...three hours on Friday. We ate at Bobby Flay's Burger Palace and got so sleepy afterwards. We finished building it Saturday night! We celebrated by watching Dark Knight Rises :) (so good!) I still need to add more RAM but it's not big deal.
I totally recommend building your own computer! It's so much cheaper and more satisfying too. I paid around ~600 and if I were to get this pre-built for me...it would probably cost double? I also got the best bang for the buck too.
I love my new computer :)
