First Build - She's coming together

Finally she looks pretty! All of the below issues have been fixed so I dont what else to say about the build now but i followed through so thats cool lol.


OUTDATED prior to 5/10/19 - After many years of wanting a PC I finally scraped together the money to put together a functional build. Upgrades are on the way and it wont look like trash forever lol. I bought the "performance" parts before the cosmetic parts. The case and power supply were gifted to me, and the cpu cooler is too tall for the side panel.

Planned upgrades
Case - Cooler Master Mastercase H500 (didnt happen got a Masterbox TD500 instead)
PSU - Gigabyte 750w 80+ Gold (SeaSonic 620w 80+ Bronze instead)
Mobo - MSI B450 Tomahawk
RAM - Add 1 Corsair vengeance LPX 16gb 3200 (because ocd)
Monitor - Acer 24" 1920x1080 144hz
Keyboard - Logitech G pro

Notes
This case has no room for cable management so once I get the new case I will be fixing the cables and maybe getting some CableMod Cable extensions. Also I will flip over the cpu cooler. Would like to give the build a Gunmetal gray and orange ryzen theme.
