My Dream build

This is the first PC I have ever built. I am a new computer science teacher and thought it was about time that I had my own desktop, not just a laptop and PS4, and it made the most sense for me to build it myself. I have had so much fun doing this. There was a rather annoying situation where the original motherboard I bought only worked for about 15mins and then was just dead, giving me only a black screen with a small line at the top. I spent a lot of time and energy trying to figure out what the problem was, to no avail. So I had to fork out a lot more money to buy a new one. Now it is all done I am sooo fricking happy with it! It is great, and amazing, and pretty, ..................................... I really like it.
