First time builder!

First time builder!
Hello everyone.

I live in Missouri, am a recent hire as a software developer and love to play computer games in my spare time.

I'm almost embarrassed to say what I've been gaming on, let just say it's older then Facebook. At this point the Tier 0.5 would be a big upgrade. Tongue

I've been reading HR's site for awhile and I think Mathieu and your community do a great job helping people.

It's way past time for a new rig, I just can't get by anymore playing games on the lowest possible settings, so I decided I need to take the plunge and get something new and why not build something myself.

I've been looking at the Tier 4/5 builds as my target, that's about where my budget is at.

Well that's my introduction, thanks for all you guys do, especially Mathieu.

Welcome to the Site. I definitely understand how you feel about your rig. For the last like four years I had been using an old Dell laptop that barely played anything. Tier 4 / 5 would be a massive upgrade for you. :-)

Welcome aboard! I just upgraded from an old Macbook that could barely run Minecraft this past April and it was certainly worth it.
