Hey everyone! It has been a long time since I visited Neowin. After I built my first PC back in 2004, I stumbled across Neowin looking for wallpapers. Around 2011, I took a break from being a PC enthusiast/gaming to focus on other things. Happy to say I'm back in the saddle and I thought it was only proper to come show off my new baby

 

IMG_0239.thumb.jpg.abd8b62d85772949ebb69d19adefdf2c.jpg

 

Name: toFu

 

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 (no OCing/fancy stuff yet)

Gigabyte Aorus B450 WiFi

XFX Radeon RX 570

Corsair Vengence 16GB DDR4 @ 3000 

Corsair CX-M 650w

Some SSD I ripped out of my Macbook to keep costs down. Think its Intel? (although thanks to my job I have a 512GB M.2 to upgrade to now)

2x WD 1TB HDD that were also ripped out of a Hackintosh I built a while back

Thermaltake Water 3.0 120mm AIO

3x darkAura 120mm RGB fans

 

Not pictured:

Asus VG278Q 27" 144hz display

fnatic Streak Mini TKL Mechanical Keyboard (Cherry MX Brown)

fnatic flick2 12k DPI gaming mouse

 

She might not look like much, but she's got it where it counts. Still a bit of a WIP as I want to upgrade the AIO (not really happy with the way this one looks would like to go for a rad that takes up the whole front panel) and I'll probably upgrade the graphics card sooner rather than later. I just wanted to get something I could game at decent framerates on and I more or less maxed out my budget for the time being (don't tell the wife!)

Things have certainly moved on by the looks of this thread, I never realised RGB was such a big thing now.

 

I had a couple of neon light strips, coloured fans and a case with a see though side panel back in 2004, I thought that was pretty hardcore back then.

I prefer my PC to be incognito these days, however Neowin members have some great looking builds! :)

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
