Worlds best IBM with RGB

Summer of 2019 build log:
I am saving up to upgrade as it does not have a discrete graphics card. My mom had an old K-6 system laying around, so I put new internals in it (motherboard, cpu power supply, and replaced the 8gb hardrive with the cheapest 1tb ssd from Best buy). Now it has a Ryzen 5 2400g with the most powerful integrated gpu ever (the 3400g has a higher gfx clock of 1400 mhz, but I closed the gap with some overclocking) and 16 gigabytes of the least reviewed and cheapest at the time RGB ram on Newegg. It also has the cheapest power supply from Best buy. I didn't know at the time of building this how important ram speed was for ryzen or that running in dual channel mode would make a difference. For a while I used the original CRT as I didn't have anything else, but now I use an old LCD from the mid 2000s though surprisingly the CRT has better color and is brighter, and the stair case effect seen at sharp color borders is not seen on the CRT.
