Red, Blue, and Black First Build

My first build ever, and currently in its second or third iteration. It's been upgraded a few times in the past two years. I started off with an i5-7500, an MSI B250 motherboard, a Corsair Spec-04, and an EVGA 1060 6 GB. It has been my baby, and a perfect gaming build for me. It's capable of running VR at acceptable quality and FPS, gets 80+ on most AAA games, and is the best thing to just tinker around with. It may not be a super high-end gaming beast, but I love it for what it is. Simply the fact that I made it with my own hands makes me happy.
