On Black Friday of 2018, I built my first PC. I went to Micro Center to get the parts to my build which I found many great deals. This PC was for my parents to work on, for me to game on, and for me and my sister to do homework on. I mainly play KSP and Hypixel Bedwars, and hope to play CS:GO in the future. Great RGB in the build and plan to build another PC for college in a couple of years.

The Ryzen 7 1700X is a perfect CPU with decent clock speeds and 8 cores. We probably don't need 8 cores, but as multi core performance becomes more important, it may use all 8 cores. Clocked at 3.6 Ghz.
Has good cooling for the price, I put another fan on the back of the cooler. Overclocked cpu 200 MHz and usually at 45-50 C.
Good thermal paste, easy to use.
This motherboard was great! It had great rgb, good max ram speeds, good bios, and good ports. B350 if great chipset because only doing mild overclocks.
Good graphics card for a budget. Do plan to get a vega navi when they are released. Can play all games at high settings at 1080p 60fps. I have Nvidia fast-sync to eliminate screen tearing.
The spec 02 is a lovely case, but only with rgb. Without rgb fans or strips the acrylic side panel is dark and boring. However with rgb, the side panel becomes more transparent, enabling the ability to see all the rgb goodness. My rgb strips, fans, and ram heatsink light up the case beautifully
Got this for $30 off of eBay rather than $200. Works great
This is usually $250, but we got it off eBay for $15!!
Just a normal case fan
I love this monitor. It looks very good because of a VA panel and very responsive with the 1ms response time. This is my first 144hz monitor which looks outstanding compared to 60hz which was what I was at previously
The g810 is a great gaming and typing keyboard. The gaming experience is smooth, and I love the slight bump that notifies, but also isn't too stiff. While typing I don't bottom out, so I can type at 80 wpm. Love the rgb, syncs great with my g403 and g633
This mouse is a great mouse that was given to me by two friends for my birthday. Love the mouse, I keep the weight in, because it's already a light mouse, and I like medium weight mice, cable is really light, don't even notice it. I keep it at 1250 dpi.
These headphones make my music come to life, when I bought these I yhought I would just use them for the pc, but I also use them to listen to music, and the detachable cable is very nice. Great soundstage while listening to music and outstanding surround sound in games.
Just basic speakers, when using headphones don't make sense to use. However, makes a buzzing sound when turned on, so constantly have to unplug and replug.
I love this flight controller. I mainly use this in ksp to simulate mission to mars, as I hope to go to mars one day myself. Everything is very smooth, except joystick rolls to easily, and the sunction cups don't stay down for that long.
I connected this with the fans and strips and used the controller to controll all the adressable rgb in the build. By the same company so works great. I Put this over my ram heatsink, because I tried taking off the old ram heatsink, and I broke that stick of ram. Instead, I just put it on top of the heatsink, and it works fine
This brought my system to life with the outstanding adressable rgb. I had low hopes due to the price, but the rgb is as good as a Corsair ll120! They are pwm, so usually quiet because at low rpm and sync well with the strips and ram heatsink. I used the included ram heatsink's controller to also control the rgb fans and strips, because they are made by the same company.
