First Build = 1 Broke Boi

This is my first ever build and I went way over budget and decided just to make it look and perform as good as I could. 2 months ago I knew nothing about building a PC. I'm a console gamer and have always wondered why PC gamers bragged so much. After weeks of research, Youtube videos, Google searches, and friends advice I finally felt like I had the confidence to build a PC. It started as a Stormtrooper Themed build, but I settled for Blue and White colored scheme. I wanted to liquid cool it, but I'm not overclocking and the Wraith Prizm Cooler just looked really good to me. I don't think I would have done anything different and a I'm really proud of this project.

Update: I've replaced the stock AMD Wraith cooler with an Asus LC 240mm AIO.

Update: The Asus RTX 2080 died on me and Asus replaced it with a 2080 Super.
