Backstory Back before I ever built my PC I was gaming on a laptop. My brother was gaming on an even worse laptop. It was a single core celeron laptop that froze when you used the track pad. When I built my PC and he got to use it, he could never go back to the laptop. After months of gaming on my PC me and some of my friends convinced him to get his own PC.
The Process Originally I was planning to sell him my old parts and do a minor upgrade. After I received money from my school to build a PC that I could take home, we decided to buy him new parts. My friend and I started working on a parts list. We chose the Ryzen 1600 because it was cheaper than an i5 and better. After that we started to pick compatible parts. We found some good combos on Newegg that we used like CPU, RAM, mobo combo. The ssd came out of the laptop but 240gb was not enough storage hence the 1tb hdd. I borrowed my friends old GPU until I could find a good 1060 because the Ryzen CPUs have no graphics. I saw the 1060 for -50.00 on Christmas and immediately bought it. That card is pretty heavy so you might notice fishing line tied to the case to support it. The color scheme worked out pretty well, but that was not even really considered while making the parts list. After making about 3 builds and finally working with a PSU shroud this thing looks pretty nice.
