Update: This PC now has a name: Red Cyclone.
I built a new $900 gaming PC, so I’m showing it off. It’s a Core i5-6500 with a Radeon R9 380 in an Enermax Ostrog GT case. My friends convinced me to get a Samsung 850 Evo which makes Windows 10 super fast. I haven’t found anything that can push this to its limits, but it runs all my games great. I wrote a lot more about this rig over on PCPartPicker.
