My Custom PC - A Tour Of My Media Production (and Gaming) Machine


I've been asked a lot about my system, and what the specs are and what I'm running on. So, I thought that sounded like a decent topic for a video blog. Here's a quick tour of my custom PC. It's just from my phone, so nothing really special.

I actually recorded a presentation on me building this thing (with much better camera/sound/lighting) and assembling most of it together. I never got around to editing the footage. If that sounds like something you'd like me to do, let me know in the comments and perhaps it'll motive me to actually do something with that footage. :)

Below are the system components, along with links to Amazon to the parts so you can see the information about them. These links are also affiliate links, so if you do decide to purchase the parts with these links, I get a small kickback from that purchase. I've also included links to some of the other stuff I talk about in the video, such as my audio adapter, the microphone I'm using, and my backup (and media server) solution.
