Slightly less RGB

This is the first PC build that I've ever undertaken - I built it 2 months ago in November. It took quite a bit of time to research the parts needed for the build and manage to put together enough money to make the whole thing happen. I first had the idea to build this PC just a little under 2 years ago - as you can see I was quite patient in waiting for the right time to build it. A whole GPU cycle came and went in the period of time that I was planning this build. I believe that the original plan was to go for a Ryzen 5 1600 w/ GTX 1060, but it has significantly grown since then. Ironically this build probably cost me less than that original one did due to insane mining craze prices - I also bought the GTX 1080 used which is a decision I most definitely do not regret! It saved me a good $400-$500 AUD.
