As part of preparing my new apartment for attending-hood, I modified my previous Hackintosh to be a future-proof Windows computer specifically made for gaming. The idea is that in a few years, I can easily upgrade the graphics card (and peripherals) while maintaining the same internal core (motherboard, CPU, memory, disks).

Bahamut is an absolute beast for the basic games I play – Rocket League, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, Team Fortress 2, Grand Theft Auto 5, etc. Check out the pictures below!
PS – if you’re wondering where I got “Bahamut”, I’ve named my electronics after my favorite summons from the Final Fantasy series. 😉
8/23/2019 Addendum: The ASUS Strix Vega 64 was upgraded to a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (overclocked). 🙂
