Hello Geekzone forums! I shall begin with a quick introduction.

I recently moved to Auckland from down south to start my most recent job as a salesman at Computer Lounge. I thoroughly enjoy helping people out with PC related problems and recommending components for builds. I'm a case modder at heart and I've never had that much time for gaming. I spent twice as much time building PCs than I do using them, for this I receive a lot of hate as I like to purchase the latest components as a 'just in case', but rarely utilise the performance they provide. I put form before function when building PCs because I believe that every build has the potential to be a meticulous work of art that when documented properly will outlast the lifespan of the components that it is made up of...

Anybody on here with similar views?
