Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang is only my 3rd and current rig. I live in a country where parts are extremely expensive. (A 2080 is $1300 and a R5 1600X is around $250) so when my grandpa who lives in California came to visit, he had brought me most of the parts for my build, but I had the case and storage already here.

I've been in love with white builds ever since I got into PC building which was back in 2014 (I was 12 at the time) and I've always wanted my own white build and this was my chance of getting one. I Had a system previously with an R5 2400G with an MSI B350 Tomahawk, the motherboard short-circuited and I had to replace it because dumb me had an extra standoff in the wrong place. But after that was fixed, I sold the CPU, motherboard and ram, and kept the case awaiting my grandpa to arrive, and in that time I bought a can of white paint and painted a bit of the system like the SSD trays, GPU Bracket thingys and the PSU bracket white which helped with making the system a little more white. Fast forward 10 days and I have the system up and running, everything was great, but I decided to get sleeved cables so I got some from a friend who makes them. I started upgrading little by little, and got more and better ram, and now I'm stuck here, needing an upgrade as the 3GB's of VRAM in the GPU are not really ideal.
