My Escapades With Pcpartpicker

Truth be told, I have been an ardent follower of the Pc partPicker and our romance began in 2012 when I wanted to build a gaming PC.

I had my pc specs in mind but my dilemma then was how to find a custom gaming pc builder.

I searched online but found none until I found a banner ad on a forum(I can’t remember the name) that stated: build your own gaming computer.

I was pretty young at this time, I doubt I knew the basic parts of a computer. Guess I was just 11years old the time.

Kids of my age would jump on any thing custom gaming pc builder
