I first built my gaming PC in 2016 in order to play BeamNG.drive lag-free and to record videos at full 1080p60 for my YouTube channel. My original build included an Intel i7-6700k, 32GB of Corsair LPX RAM, ASUS GeForce ROG STRIX 1070 GPU, Z170-A Motherboard, and NZXT X52 AIO Cooler.
In early 2021, in order to provide an even better experience, such as including more vehicles on the map at once, and to future-proof myself for a number of years, I upgraded to the below system specs.
PC Specs (since January 2021):
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition
RAM: 32GB (2x16GB) Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3600MHz
