1. Daeun and her Corsair 250d

Description:

“Hello mitxlove and everyone! I built this PC last year with the help of my amazing boyfriend Jon (@jtrias21) as an upgrade to my late 2006 MacBook White Core 2 Duo.  I chose the red color theme and wanted it to be really pretty and small, so we ultimately went with an ITX build inside the Corsair 250D case, with a red/black/silver color scheme using Asus and Corsair for most of the parts for aesthetics and brand reliability. The purpose of this PC is mainly gaming on a 1080P monitor and light video editing because I love photography and use Adobe CC Lightroom & Photoshop as my editing programs. At first I thought it would be hard to build a computer but my assumptions were proven wrong, it was actually really fun! ”
