My Computer

Here is a quick rundown of my computer. I don’t game much nowadays, so the video card can stay as it is. If I could upgrade anything, it would be the monitor. I really like the Surface Studio type monitor. Let me know in the comments which parts you would replace.

This Build

This PC has a Gigabyte Z390 Auros Master motherboard with an i9-9900K CPU. It’s still using an old GTX 970. The Logitech K750 keyboard is quiet, wireless, and solar-powered, so no batteries or cables are required. If I do game, I use a Logitech G Pro keyboard. My mouse is a Logitech G903 mouse. The G903 can be used with or without a wire. This PC is my main computer, and it’s running Windows 10 Pro.

Other thoughts

The GTX970 card runs silently below 40 degrees (without the fans spinning), thanks to a GPU bios flash.
The G903 mouse had disconnection issues, which turned out to be the cable. I now use the cable from the G Pro keyboard.
I build a new PC every 5 or 6 years, and they usually last well for that time. Only if I get back into gaming do I feel the need to upgrade something.

Here’s a quick introduction to building computers.
