Edgy McEdge Master, The build with some edge to it!

This is my daily gaming rig. A red and black themed PC I payed way too much for and will never make the mistake of doing again. I made it two years ago in late October of 2017 in the middle of the mining craze. The whole lot cost me a little over $2000. It originally contained a GTX 1050 Ti from Gigabyte but I found a somewhat cheap GTX 980 from EVGA and wanted to upgrade. No regrets.

I know it's not the prettiest and the cables are a little bit everywhere, but I open it up every three months and give it a good pass with compressed air to keep the dust from getting all over the insides.

If I could have made this build cheaper back in the day with the knowledge I now have I would have: spent the money on a Ryzen5 1600, a second hand GTX 970 or GTX 980 (2017 was horrible for AMD GPUs but an RX580 would have been an option pre-mining craze.) and finally, a smaller case so that I could have it on my desk at all times.
