So after almost 5 years of continuous use, my desktop finally broke. I was playing Mass Effect: Andromeda one night and then the next night it wouldn't start up.
Went through some debugging and found out that the Mobo didn't like anything in the PCI-e slots. I then tried booting it using on-board graphics and it worked. I immediately made sure everything was backed up and started to cry/drink and think up new builds on PcPartPicker.
Then late last week, I tried a few more options and got it to at least display something using the GPU, but then it wouldn't boot past POST.
Then a day after that, it wouldn't boot at all :(
Ordered all the parts over the weekend and will be assembling the new PC this week!
I'll have a separate post on why this new build was a very hard one to design.
Wish me luck!
