Very nice build so compact. How is the air flow? Also I noticed in part list says RX 570 than in description says RX 580. I recently build a system with the r5 2600 and rx 570. Great budget 1080p gamer. Good choice on the 8gb vram card, I wish i had ton that route. But I'll upgrade to RX 5700 and a nice monitor like yours eventually. Enjoy it.

Focus on school. Do well. Get grants. Pay off loans. Financial freedom...

And then the sky's the limit.

I mean i'm applying for every scholarship possible but this PC serves it's purpose for 3d modelling and beats the 1050 4gb mobile in the laptop the school provided

I don't think there's anything wrong with your build. I think you made some really great decisions. ITX form factor is nice. Saves space. Easy to move in and out.

For a college rig, I think the ideal system is something that does a little bit of everything. A little gaming, a little entertainment, a lot of multi-tasking and productivity, etc. Something that fills a lot of roles. I think a nice quality monitor is going to do you wonders. A monitor with a lot of workspace is super helpful. Ability to have a lot of content up. Lots of space to Photoshop. Big screen to watch movies. Ability to have a work document and a reference side-by-side.

Great build + 1 I have built in this case myself and can confirm that a non modular PSU is a massive pain in the #$%^ here.

Looks great! If you ever need to expand storage, look into the m.2 NVMe SSDs! The form factor is super convenient. It's a size of a gumstick and no cables or anything. Just pop it into the slot, screw it down, and you are ready to go.

It has been awhile since I was a college student, but I remember my dorm room set-up. I think it was a Intel Pentium 4 system with dual 19" LCD monitors...
