Computer Build(Aksis)

Building a computer was something I have always wanted to do. After saving up for a couple of years I was finally able to make that dream a reality and build my own custom gaming rig. Due to its black and red color scheme and my obsession with game Destiny at the time I named this build Aksis after the Siva-infused boss from one of the game's final raids. With this build I set out a decent mid-to-high range gaming rig that was not only able to play games smoothly at high graphical settings but that could also be used to develop software and games. Originally this rig was also supposed to act as a media server as well, but that idea was eventually scrapped in order to build my own standalone server. Now, I look forward to my next build to come, after a few years of upgrading this one.
