Choose Custom Built

Last week you went to the local electronic store and bought a brand new pre-made PC. Finally, after months of saving and waiting until you had enough money in the bank, you decided it was time to get a new PC. One to work on, one to play on, one to rule them all.

You finally loaded up Overwatch, turned the graphics up to ultra high, and got into a match. All this working, saving, and waiting, only to realize that the game is stuttering. The frame rate is low.
