Budget AMD Build #2

This is my second-ever build. First build was back in 2014 with an FX-6300/MSI 970 GAMING/R9 280X for ~$600. Rear exhaust & CPU cooler fan died within the same week so I was forced to build a new one after 5 years. Spent a few weeks pillaging through review after review and benchmark after benchmark since it had been quite a couple years since I had read any tech news. Ended up with going with what you see. Had to return the M.2 because it was the wrong key & the 2TB seagate drive had major mechanical issues so they aren't in any pictures. Also sorry for not taking more pictures & the lighting in most of the pictures I did take. Put this together for just over $850.

Note: Noticed a bit of sag in the GPU. Will fix that soon.
