Christmas 2016 Computer Parts List

November 16, 2016

I thoroughly enjoy building my own desktop computers, from researching parts all the way down to figuring out cable management to making the interior as clean as possible is something I love to do. I also enjoy making parts lists for new builds with no intention of actually building the computer. It’s fun to geek out on the specs and it keeps me up-to-date on new technology. So here is a 2016 Christmas build parts list. According to part specs this build should have tons of performance — and enough RGB LED lighting to light it up like a Christmas tree. Good times!
