"The Punisher" - An Affordable Entry-Level Gaming PC

My goal with this build was simple. Use relatively common lower cost parts to build a simple yet elegant gaming PC that still has that "cool factor" to it.

All of the pieces for this build can be found on Amazon or scrounged up from eBay. This build in total cost about $375 for me to make due to pulling the processor out of a broken 2017 iMac that I was gutting for someone and getting some particularly good deals on Craigslist. In reality, a regular person could probably emulate this build (or atleast with similar parts/methods) for about $600-700... give or take.

Hope y'all enjoy this one.
