New Desktop

Feeling somewhat limited by my previous main desktop machine, a small Intel NUC, I decided it was time to get a new desktop computer at home. I considered different options including a pre-built workstation but settled on building a traditional ATX style computer, for it offered the greatest flexibility. Things have changed since I last build a desktop from components, and so I got to use newer technologies like MVNe M.2 SSD and a modular power supply.
