Blue Dragon

This is my first ever PC build. This all came together back in November of 2018, when a friend of mine had suggested building a PC together. He didn't want to be the only blowing his money, so I said I would join him lol. Not that I wasn't planning on building one myself because that was far from it. This build was the culmination of 3 months of planning and drooling over PC build guides from the likes of many highly regarded youtubers. The part list has made some slight changes since the original planning back in August. Parts such as the 1080ti were included at one point. But the main plan for this build was a small form factor. Let me know what you guys think.

April 2020 update: There have been some updates since my first post. I have added a Samsung 970 evo 1TB for more storage, a more aesthetic gpu bracket since the one that came with the graphics card was a little flimsy, an upgrade in the mouse department to the g pro wireless, and an lg ultrawide monitor for obvious reasons (34gk950f) even though the parts list says otherwise. Also since my last post I have moved out of my parents basement and am now living with my girlfriend :). Other updates that came from moving include a new desk and some monitor mounts. So much more that I have planned for the future but I must treat this as a process.

October 2020 update: Managed to snatch a EVGA 3080 FTW3 Ultra from Microcenter. Did not think I was getting one since the line was so long, but they ended up getting a couple of shipments that day, happy day :). Other updates to the build include a new 850W power supply from Seasonic to feed the new RTX 3080, some RGB LED strips along the back of the LG monitor for some ambient lighting, a Logitech C922x for work video conferences and the occasional onlyfans, and the Autonomous Ergochair 2 which has been a god send to this setup.
