Design Rationale

  • The i5-7600K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for gaming, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a single-tower cooler was recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 16GB of RAM, 32GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was mostly fine with our default storage setup, only downgrading the boot drive to 256GB.
  • The customer was fine with our recommended video card
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 650W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a mid-tower case to fit the build.

Customer Review

“Love the constant communication. They always keep you up to date on your PC. I got my first gaming PC from these guys and I’m VERY happy with the outcome.

I wanted to try something local because of reviews on the big companies not being the best. Plus this is a bit more personal.

You actually talk to Chris about what you want and he puts it into action. Thanks for the experience!”
