PC Build - Wifes New Alder Lake Gaming System

This PC was built quickly to replace an older system that had failed. I didn’t have time to wait for parts to come in the mail. I needed everything within a day or so. I picked up all the parts in person at Microcenter.

Where is the GPU?

We haven’t bought one yet….

As of March 2022 GPU prices were still pretty crazy due to logistics and the chip shortage. They are starting to come down now which is pretty nice. We may end up adding a GPU soon but we will see.

In terms of performance the built in GPU is actually about on part with the dedicated GPU that was present in her old system.
