Build Image

This is my very first Desktop! While it isn't my very first PC build (I helped the SO out with her desktop), it certainly is my first time at tackling something so elaborate. I'm totally ready to dive straight into the deep end!

I was thinking of calling it Project Whiteout, but the SO made some very convincing arguments & VETO'd Fishtank. It sounds much more fun anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
