Black & Red ver. 2.0

This build has come together a little at a time. It started out with a different case and motherboard and migrated into it's current case necessitating a move to a Micro ATX motherboard. The system is a really decent price/performance all AMD build - Ryzen 5 2600 / Radeon RX 590. I went with the RX 590 over the somewhat better value RX 580 because I'm running an ultrawide monitor and wanted the extra headroom and was willing to pay a small price premium. The red & black theme was determined by the specific GPU I purchased. The Corsair red ML fans were chosen for high performance / low idle noise / furthering the color theme. Next changes to the setup I have planned include a different keyboard with red backlights and a vertical monitor mount for my two monitors.

NOTE: Upgraded from 16GB to 32GB G.Skill Flare X RAM and added a 500GB Crucial M.2 SSD. Not bothering to update photos to reflect the updates.
