Cotton Candy

I used to be quite a tech enthusiast (slacked off these few months), and I had a plan to build my own computer and setup quite a few years ago. I carried out in February 2019. First, I built my computer which consisted of a Ryzen 5 2600, 16g DDR4 3200mhz Corsair RGB Pro, 250g Samsung 970 Evo, MSI B450 Carbon Pro, Corsair RM650X, and an AMD RX580. The setup was built a few months after, I don't remember an exact time. My peripherals were made up of my Logitech G502 (lost it somehow), cheap knock-off keyboard, and my SteelSeries Arctis 7. Upgrades were made throughout the year, and here I am with my current part list. The only big upgrade I dropped was stepping up my graphic game to an RTX2080 (part list says super because that was the only model available there) so I could run chunkier games and render out images/animations faster. Overall, the setup looks nice, runs quiet, and gets the job done. Please do share your thoughts below, and thanks for the visit.
