I went to Micro Center November 2020 to build a new custom built
gaming and workstation computer. However, I was not able to purchase all the
parts I wanted. Certain parts were out of stock. Other parts were out of my budget.
This is my wish list and dream list of my custom built gaming computer.
The AMD Ryzen 5900X is my choice for a fast multicore
processor and they made upgrades with the memory arrangement with AMD 4th Generation
Ryzen. The Corsair 64 GB 3200Mhz offers enough Random Access Memory (RAM) for
years to come. The EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 TI, 3070 or 3080 offers enough
graphical performance for modern day video games also for years to come. The
Corsair Power Supply 850 Watt provides enough power to drive the gaming
components. The Samsung EVO 2TB Non Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) Solid State
offers blazing fast speeds for the operating system and my most important video
games. The SanDisk 4TB Solid State (SSD) offers enough storage for my
documents, photos, games and more. It is still the more affordable mass storage.
The NZXT H510 Elite has the most case fans and they are RGB. Plus, it had the
front panel and side panel tempered glass displaying everything. The Elgato
4K60 capture card offers capturing my Xbox One X screenshots and videos as a
hobby to post to Twitter and YouTube. The Viewsonic XG2530 25 inch 1080p 240hz offers
the 1080p experience I know however it increases the frame limit to 240 frames
per second potential. I wish the Viewsonic XG2760 27 inch 1440p 165hz Nvidia G-Sync
monitor was still available at Micro Center.
That means for games like PlanetSide 2 and MechWarrior
Online that I will have the most possible frames in my online multiplayer games!
As Nvidia marketing states “More Frames Win Games” and I agree totally! I also
play the Watch Dogs franchise including Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2 and coming
someday to Steam Watch Dogs Legion. Antigraviator and Pacer (formerly Formula
Fusion) are my favorite futuristic racing games. Battlefield Bad Company 2,
Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Need for Speed
(2015), Need for Speed Heat and The Sims 4 are some of my favorite Electronic
Arts titles that I play on my new custom built gaming computer.
I was extremely happy with my purchasing experience at Micro
Center for the build I was actually able to build with AMD Ryzen 3900X, ASUS
X570 Hero Non-WiFi, Corsair 64GB 3200Mhz, Samsung 500GB NVMe, SanDisk 2TB SSD, Corsair
750 Watt White PSU, Elgato 4K60 Pro and NZXT H510 Elite White. Thank you to all
the Micro Center employees that helped me with my purchase. The Micro Center
Build Service for assembling it. I cannot wait to go back again in the future!
If I won the $1000 gift card I would upgrade to both a
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and Viewsonic XG2530 25 inch monitor 240 frames per
second. The monitor would be the most important for currently upgrading my new
custom built gaming computer with the ability to see more frames with my MSI
GeForce RTX 2060. It is a first generation RTX card and was the only one
available the night I was building and assembling the setup.
Happy custom built gaming computer building everyone!
