It started out as a budget build at $400. Then I wanted to get a better case and fans and.........It got a bit out of hand. Went up by $200. Whatever. IT LOOKS AWESOME. I like it. I had a good idea of what I thought it was going to look like, then I put it together and, WOW. The feeling of accomplishment surged when everything worked. OK enough about all that. Now on to...
CPU The budget killer of 2018. It works great. Plenty of power for the small/medium gamer.
MOTHERBOARD Aorus is a good company. I needed WIFI on it so this was the one to get.
RAM Went with the theme. Great pair with the CPU.
STORAGE 480GB is the right number for a budget. You can get at least 5 good quality games on there.
CASE This is the best ITX case I could find for future proofing and also that matched the theme.
PSU Right price. The forum helped me find that one. Thanks.
FANS Even though they are cheap fans from Amazon they work great and light up the case.
