First computer I built was after I met my wife, back in 2001. She had a computer that one of the IT guys from her work built her. A Pentium computer with dial up. It took all day to update or download anything. My first introduction to Newegg. I bought a bare bones pc that needed a hard drive, graphics card, etc. It was the newest Intel chip. And had the RJ45 jack for Roadrunner. From there, I upgraded it for Windows XP. Then I got into actually building them from the Motherboard up. Got my first AMD, the Thuban Phenom II X6, still have it and it still works, and have always gotten the NVIDIA video cards and the Western Digital Velociraptor 10K, which is now a 1TB. I have been AMD since. I currently have the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X on the AsRock X470 Taichi Ultimate board with 16 gigs of DDR4 ram, and the NVIDIA GTX 1060 video card, and a 1 TB SSD. However, since the wired internet connection on the board is shot and only wireless works, I will be upgrading. I have the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero AM4 motherboard and the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X Zen 3 processor. Just need to get the RAM, which I will probably be going with 32 GIGS and am looking at the NVIDIA RTX 3070 or 3080. I've built quite a few pcs over the years, a few for family until they could afford something better, and I love doing it. I am a DIYer and tinkerer at heart. I like modding, building, repairing, anything that I can do with my hands. And it keeps me out of trouble, as does my wife.
