First Build, Red and Black

This is my first Build ever. Built based on a GPU deal on black friday. Everything else bought locally(Peru). If there was a theme to this, it would be getting the absolute cheapest everything I could find except for CPU and PSU. Coming from a Haswell laptop this was a HUGE step-up in performance and I'm quite glad I took the plunge.

Also, the fact that it's color coded is a complete accident. I bought the most bang for buck components I could find(the market sucks in Peru) and it just so happens that everything was either red, black or a combination of both(except for the intel stock cooler, no budget for changing that if that meant getting an ssd or not)

Color(s): Black Red
RGB Lighting? No
Theme: none
