Back in White

This build originally started out in my dads hands in 2006, and when he got himself a new rig, he passed his now obsolete on onto me in 2013.
I gamed on it for two years until I decided I was sick of having 40 FPS in CSGO.
In 2015, I upgraded to a Core i3-6100 with 8GB of RAM and a 1050 Ti.
Beginning of 2016, I got myself a new case to alongside my hardware.
Mid 2016, I noticed what a necessity a SSD was, so I purchased a cheap one off of Amazon.
Late 2016, I upgraded my peripherals to more adequate standards, sadly I got myself a K55, which I still regret, as I would love to have a mechanical keyboard, but that'll have to wait until a later date.
After a year of not getting any upgrades, I decided to get myself a nice upgrade, so I got a 1060 6GB ROG Strix from ASUS, a new Z370M motherboard for the future, and a nice i5-8400 alongside a beQuiet! Shadow Rock Slim for any future needs.
In 2018 I got a new case, the H500, and two new monitors, one 144hz, one just 60hz.
I hope that this build, eventhough almost all of its parts are new, will remain for as long as possible, and never properly die, as it would pain both me and my father.

(Apologies for the trashy pictures, best my old phone will give :p)
