  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a dual-tower cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • We recommended 16GB RAM for the particular need, 32GB+ is an easy upgrade for the customer to handle.
  • The customer agreed with our dual-drive storage recommendation.
  • We recommended an RTX 3060 for their preferred monitor, the customer opted for an AMD variant.
  • We recommended a 850W power supply based on the overall design of the build.
