This is a build that I have been working on for a little over 2 months due to me still being in high school and only having a part-time job. I mainly use this build for gaming, video editing, and just everyday things like browsing Reddit (the most crucial part) and sometimes watching Youtube videos. I am a person who looks solely for price to performance parts when I look at building a PC and I made a list off of what I thought would be the best for performance and for my wallet. I had no issues while building due in part to it not being my first time working on a PC (I have a laptop that I have had to do a repasting on before due to the high temps) and I have worked on desktops at my school that need various repairs such as faulty drives, CPU coolers, etc.

Upgrade list (Yep, already thinking of more to spend on this brand new rig!) : Add another set of 2x8 sticks of Corsair DDR4 3000 to make it 32GB to solidify my memory needs in Adobe After Effects Add another M.2 SSD (preferably a 2TB Intel 660p) If any more come along I'll update this description.

Thanks for taking the time to view my build!
