Buying (and building!) my first PC with cash!

I'm very happy to announce that I will be building a gaming PC for the first time, and this will be the first computer that I have ever purchased without relying on a credit card! Started a computer replacement category months ago, and while I originally budgeted $1000 for a prebuilt model, I feel ready to build my own and will be saving a few hundred dollars in the process. The last two parts I need will be arriving tomorrow, and by the end of the day Sunday I'll have an all-new PC!

  • linkhs Nicely done!! My husband builds PCs (I just use them 😅) so I know how pricey they can get. Budgeting for one is no small task - Congratulations! What games are in your future?

      Faness Thanks! 😄 I specifically built this for Baldur's Gate 3, but I'm also looking forward to playing Genshin Impact, and maybe revisiting some old favorites like Dragon Age with maxed out graphics. ✨

      Genshin Impact looks like a fun play and you can't go wrong with Dragon Age! Enjoy - you've earned every pixel. 😉
