My name is Diego Riitano. I am a writer and editor here at Easy PC. I enjoy creating PC and gaming content that’s easy for a newcomer to understand.

I entered the PC world for the first time the summer before my freshman year of high school. I remember playing games on my cheap laptop and being unsatisfied with the low frame rates and disappointing graphics.

After doing some research, I realized the best way to get the performance I wanted was to pick my own components and build a PC myself.

I was very intimidated by the prospect of building my own computer, but after seeing many guides online, I thought I should make the leap.

After multiple weeks of researching the best components, I was finally ready to order. The day my parts arrived I was incredibly excited to finally build it. Being a total novice, it took me around 3 hours to get it all together.

Taking it slow and steady, I managed to get my PC built without any major problems. When it finally booted up, I was ecstatic to start playing games. Finally, I could play AAA titles with max settings and still get a buttery smooth 60+ FPS.

For the past 6 years since then, I’ve been building computers and learning more about gaming and PCs every day. I like to help those new to the scene since I remember exactly how I felt when I built my first PC.

My Current PC Specs:

Nowadays, my rig isn’t the most powerful, but it definitely suits my purposes well. As long as I can play most games at 1080p with respectable frame rates, I’m satisfied.
