Checkpoint: 2010 PC Edition


Not going to be a long post today since I actually forgot to post something until late.

The PC isn’t here yet, but I’d thought I’d share the breakdown of my PC purchase for the curious.

It’s not the most powerful build, but I think it’s a balanced one.

I may do follow up posts with pictures of the build’s internals for all to see.
