Computer Build(Cyndaquil)

Building a computer was a project that I've always wanted to undertake. After saving up through college, I was finally able to make that dream a reality and build my own custom gaming computer. Due to its black and red color scheme, I named the build Cyndaquil after one of my favorite starter Pokémon.

With this build, I set out create a decent mid-to-high end gaming computer that was capable of playing games smoothly with high graphics settings and could also be used for the development of games and software. I originally intended this build to also function as a home server but ultimately decided to build a standalone server instead.
