Budget Mini B&W

This is my budget PC that demonstrates you do not need $2500 to build a well performing, quiet, and good looking PC.
The idea behind the black and white theme is that I tend to change my setup around. However, I want everything to look good. So I built it to where it will go with any color combo I am using with my lights or on my desktop.

The PC itself is a new addition but before that I was rocking different PC's built of hand-me-downs and craigslist parts since I was a kid. The PC itself cost me around $1100, and the various accessories were gifts or something I had from my old builds. I saved up for the PC for around a year.

Here are the specs of the KB:
