First PC Build

I have never been a PC gamer (console only) and this was my first forray into the world of PC building/gaming. While picking out components, I did my best to balance look/value, and I'm extremely happy with how it turned out. I browsed r/PCMasterrace and r/BuildaPC for inspiration, and this site will help in the future as I continue to add/upgrade my components.

I really like how the Red/Black/White asthetic came out, and after my wife and I went and saw Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse, I knew exactly who I needed to add to my build to protect it!
