Ryzen Rings - Another Budget Build

After building my daughter a new gaming rig, I chose to build myself one. I didn't need the horsepower that she needed to play games at 4K on a gaming monitor in G-Sync, but wanted something where I can play the classics, some racing games, pinball and a slew of other non AAA titles that didn't require too much graphics muscle, so obviously, I wanted to keep the price at the minimum....e-Bay it was and don't forget the sale items on NewEgg (the DeepCool case with RGB controlled by MoBo software was on sale for $40 and free shipping, MoBo was on sale for $40 too). I had to buy the DDR4 RAM new, and unfortunately, it was the most expensive part of the build. It pushed the total cost of this build to over $700 (which is still pretty good). All of my builds take time since I'm constantly bidding on items and mostly losing, but the payoff is worth it and my wallet appreciates it.

Additional items not listed below - VisionTek 480GB SSD Go Drive (I won for $35) and some cheap ($14.99) RGB strips from Amazon.
