Mom & Dad's 25th Anniversary Gift

I put this build together for my parents mostly for 2 reasons:

1. My Dad has been asking me to make him a cool light up computer after seeing mine and my brother's.
2. My Mom really wanted a place to be able to store and see all of our pictures over the years.

So after some time I put together this build for them. Mostly a budget build where aesthetics were actually put ahead of performance lol. My parents did not need a crazy rig so I decided to make one that would function for their needs as well as light up the whole room while doing it. No need for a dedicated graphics card; the Ryzen 5 3400G's onboard graphics would be more than enough for their needs. This was honestly one of my favorite builds I put together and I love the way that it turned out in the end! My favorite part of this build has to be the Antec Series 7 Katana Memory Modules: I love how when they are off, the silver edging does not give off the appearance of being able to light up.
