That is quite literally what my personal first pc looked like. For a long time, I shared a pc with my brother. I hate sharing.

I鈥檓 actually building this for me and my brothers to use mostly for steam and some other stuff. It works decently right now, just looks like crap.

You mean the 'Pimp my PC' segment that Paul & Kyle do on Awesome Hardware?

I mean apart from getting a new case, there's not a great deal you can do. But you'd be better to invest in a new system tbh.

I got mine featured on there last year, all Paul & Kyle could say was "Paint those fans & remove that sticker off that fan cable" I felt so proud that was the worst they could say about my build..

Edit: the video is time stamped to when my PC was on the segment.
