From a very young age, I showed a lot of interest in computers. Going back to the 80's, my father received our very first plain beige computer that laid sideways on our desk. It came with "super duper" i286 CPU with 6 MHz. Oh and and a shiny turbo button to really speed things up!
I spent many weekends installing floppy disk games and wreaking havoc on that machine. After watching my parents invest money over and over to fix problems caused by trial and error, I made it my goal to fix the problems myself. Having grown up though the golden age of Windows, I've experienced almost every version of Windows OS going back as far to Windows 3.1.
Skipping ahead to today, I pride myself on being able to fix issues not only for for myself but to have made a career out of it. Computers have evolved from monotone bland boxes, into works of art. Custom designs cases & lights have taken the spot light. I love putting a new computer together and turning it on for the first time. That scary moment as my heart races, I press to power button, "Will it boot?" and watch the final product come to life.
Feel free to take a look at some of my most recent builds below. Lately I've been bias on AMD Zen 3 processors for their aggressive performance. I used to be an Intel fan but once they stopped pushing the bar, I switched over to AMD. With Intel's latest 13th gen, things are starting to heat back up again. Unfortunately, the prices of 13th gen is out reach for most people due to high pricing of DDR5 memory and Z690 motherboards. Hopefully prices will come down soon.
