My First Build Done Entirely on My Own

This is my first build I done truly entirely by myself. Being built during my time at the university, my budget was rather limited so I was aiming at the best price/performance ratio. At the time First Gen Ryzens were just released and 1600 presented a perfect choice for my build. I combined it with a 6GB 1060 and I created what I thought to be a perfect mid-range option.

Since then the build did not evolve much until very recently when I managed to buy an ultrawide monitor (AW3418DW) for a great price. It's not a secret that the current 1060 struggles with some of the titles and only the future will show which card is going to replace it...
