Started out when I was in high school as a budget-ish build. Had an i5 2500k, XFX HD 6850, 8GB RAM and a 1TB HDD that just died this year. Had a really bad CoolerMaster case that came with mesh right near the front intake fan so the fan would constantly nick the mesh and make the most annoying noise possible. Eventually got a 240GB SSD and upgraded to a GTX 970 that I loved but ironically also had an issue where the fan would barely hit some plastic and make an equally annoying noise. Over time I upgraded more to where im at now which is an i5-6600k that ill probably never overclock, a STRIX Vega 56, one 2TB HDD, the 240GB SSD, 16GB RAM, and a better (and semi modular) PSU!
if you look close enough you can see I took my PC in the bathroom to photograph it
