ExtremeTech published another guide on building PCs. This time they made an all-around production and gaming PC.
My last production PC is barely recognizable compared to its configuration at inception. Its graphics card, audio device, CPU cooler, fan array, power supply—heck, just about everything except its motherboard—were swapped out time and again. I absolutely require the ability to swap out parts at a moment's notice.
More of an upgrade than a brand new build, this project nevertheless found me starting with a fresh operating system and transferring data from an old machine to a mostly-new one. I did, however, carry over a number of parts from my previous production PC to the upgraded version.
Let's check out the old PC, the upgraded rig, and what I went through to land this nice, new box on my desk.
