    I’ve built twice since 2012 and it seems like everything is pretty plug and play now. There’s also a ton of resources that hold your hand through the process.

    I’ve built 3 in the past 5 years and haven’t had a single hardware problem. Play on pcpartpicker and buy from amazon or local and the hassle is extremely minor.

    My next build is in an amazon wish list. I’ve placed it all in my cart like three times just for the rush.

    I'll definitley build or buy something around the Ryzen 5 2600. It seems to be the most popular mid range processor.

    You should absolutely cart/wish list at least to check price trends and also use camelcamelcamel to help determine when to buy. I would say the cyclical purchase habits center around graphics card releases.

    Disco Elysium has been great so far, skill system is really unique. Don’t mind all the reading but occasionally I’ll have no clue the fuck someone is talking about concerning political theory or the worlds history

    Pulled the trigger on a pre-built that was highly reviewed, and 50 dollars cheaper than a build with the same hardware. It arrives on Monday.

    I am excite.

    Wasn't looking to get a future proofed beast. This will handle my RTS needs just fine I think.

    Oh yeah no doubt.
    Reformat as soon as you get it. These pre-builts have a lot of bloatware.

    Well, Amazon is dumb, but it's to my benefit. There's a few hardware variations to choose from with the model of PC I got. Amazon sent me the GTX 1660 Ti model instead of the regular ole GTX 1660. Fuck yeah.

    I forgot how hard it is to pick up a new Paradox game. They have all the good ones on Game Pass btw, Stellaris, Imperator: Rome, EU4, etc.
