    Ok, this is a forum for PC talk and PC builds. Post up your builds and specifications or any questions about building!!

    I'll start by showing my small build that I just sold to a friend.

    Specs:

    Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures :( but hopefully everyone has sweet pictures of their builds!!!

    I'm a PC Builder. I have my own PC that I made for my birthday.

    Specifications:
    https://pcpartpicker.com/list/qz9PD2

    If you're wondering about the Compatability warning is because the Cooler Master MB500 only allows a 160mm CPU Fan, not like my current case which is an Aerocool VS-1 which only allows a 155mm CPU Cooler, and I know it will fit the MB500 case because, for some reason, my Hyper 212 LED Turbo which is 162 mm fits inside my Aerocool VS-1 Case. I haven't actually changed the case of my current PC yet because I'm missing 2 Corsair AF140 Quiet Edition 140mm Fans that I'm going to put into my new case.

    And I usually help people who would like some ideas on their PC Builds.

    This forums is for a pc Minecraft server. I have a sneaking suspicion that the majority of the votes will be for Pc instead of Console...

    Well I can't answer this vote because its not a real question. Is it what do you own? what do like more what do you spend most of your time one. For which platform do you have the most games?
    I spend most of my time on my pc but I like to play consoles from time to time.

    I will choose pc over console because of the performance.However,console is the best choice if you have a limited budget.

    Is there any specific reason you went with an air cooler vs water?

    Unless I have a part that requires much cooling, a Water Cooler would just be a waste, plus I'm not as trustful of Water Cooling at the moment, sure it is better compared to an Air Cooling, however, requires a water change every 2-3 months and I currently don't trust anyone around my City including myself to try and install one.

    So, my build... I don't know off the top of my head all the parts that went into it but the main pieces:
    GTX 1060 6GB
    Intel i7-7700k ( 4 core... 3.5 ghz, i think lol too lazy to check )
    but I consider myself very lucky to have this being as I just got it.
    Before my current build i was suffering with:
    AMD R9 280x
    AMD FX-6300 ( 6 Core, 3.5 Ghz ) [ though it has 2 more cores, it still sucks compared to the i7 ]

    As for the poll, I used to be a console gamer when I was younger but even back then I wanted a computer I just couldn't afford one.
    Got my first job at 15 1/2 and worked the entire summer to save up for a computer but instead got a car, priorities lol.

    If there is one thing I hate, it is minecraft play on PS4 or XBOX. Minecraft for the PC is much easier to work with in my opinion.

    I mean...the Processor is crappy, however, your old GPU is better than a GTX 1050Ti, that being said, it is also an oven.

    I like the PC better because you can upgrade easier and to better things. It also gives way more options for things to do when it comes to games and movies.

    Well I feel like PCs and consoles can't really be compared, because I use them for different things. Like my PC is for more competitive games and such that need a lot of control. I also own a PS4 which I use mostly for fun games to play when some friends come over or more story based games ( Playing Red Dead Redemption 2 atm.), I feel like consoles are more social and fun when someone is around. Maybe it's that way for me just because I can not aim hit **** with a controller. I still use them both, but tbh if I had to chose I would pick the PC.
