It took me a while to pull the trigger and start buying parts but i found a good deal on a GPU one day and decided it was time to put it all together. About 2 years of research and browsing YouTube, PcPP, and Reddit supplied me with the knowledge for a pretty seamless build with only a couple exceptions. Improperly seated m.2 drive was causing the drive not to show up but that was an easy fix. Also don't trust windows installation media created on a Mac, took me about 3 hours before I broke out an old windows laptop and created one on there that worked perfectly the first try.
Thank you all for the help!
