Building a gaming computer during quarantine
Now with the global pandemic, I am forced to stay at home and I figured this was a good time to build myself a gaming computer which I can give it to my 12-year-old later.
I went to PCPartpicker and made this list and would really like if anyone can critique it or add something else to it.
