First PC - RGB all the things

This is my first attempt at PC building. I spent numerous hours watching TechTubers and decided to take the plunge head first. My goal for this was an all-around PC that could handle gaming 1440p 60hz, light video/photo editing, and be able to run my tiny plex media server that I host for my family and friends. I learned a lot from this build and I have the PC building bug. Hope you all like to look at this build as much as I like to stare at it.
