Updated Gaming Rig 2020

After previously upgrading my old build, my main bottleneck was my CPU. My 4690k just wasn't cutting it for newer AAA titles anymore. I realized if I wanted to upgrade that, it would probably be in my best interest to go ahead and upgrade the motherboard and RAM as well. So my new build starts, after more than 6 years.

In addition to gaming, the system will be sometimes used for video/photo editing.
