I like video games. I’ve liked them since my dad bought a Nintendo 64 when my brother and I were in elementary school. For a long time, I’ve wanted a gaming PC. After all, there are many more games you can get on it, the graphics are vastly improved, and it’s easier to play online with friends.
A few months ago, I set a budget and talked with Sam, one of my best friends who lives just a short train ride away, about it. He suggested building a PC.
I don’t know much about computers but I thought it’d be a good challenge.
Now with this coronavirus stuff, the British pound is suffering. A gaming PC was something I considered a possibility way in the future, but I didn’t know how things like self-isolation and currency were going to play out, so I said “screw it” and, with Sam’s help, bought all the parts we needed.
Honestly, Sam did most of the work. But I learned a lot about the different parts of a PC, like how the RAM, the graphics card, and CPU all work.
It took three separate shopping trips (two on Amazon, one with a train trip to Akihabara) but we finally got everything together and I’m now the proud owner of a gaming PC!
I booted up Fallout 3 first because I did actually have a Steam account a long time ago, and it still has a lot of my old favourites on it.
Japan isn’t on lockdown yet, but I definitely won’t be bored if it does!
My steam is igirisupoppy. Be sure to add me if you want to play Payday 2, Magicka, G.T.F.O., or Rainbow Six Siege!
