Built this computer almost 5 years ago with parts that were, at the time, current. Had some old Logitech Z-5300's, bought in like 2004-2005 for $200-$300, I continue to use them every day.

I have one Component not listed because it is not an option on the site, an ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO. This is an external Blu-ray burner with a built-in 7.1 surround sound card and 600 ohm headphone AMP. I use this since I have no 5.25" bays for a disc drive and its a nice little dac for my headphones.

Getting ready to upgrade the Mobo, cpu, cpu cooler, psu and gpu. This will likely lead to upgrading the ram, and adding an additional, very much anticipated second monitor. Also going to pick up a pair of Thrustmaster T16000m sticks for flight/space sims.

The Glass on the Cougar case I purchased was much darker than anticipated so It is difficult to see inside with it running, ill add a pic later with the case opened. The pics also show my RPi 4(4gb) connected to my existing monitor via an HDMI and an (unseen) usb switch for my keyboard, mouse, ext hdd and the asus blu-ray player so i dont need 2 mice or keyboards or have to swap cables all the time.

I think that the ram is fine and that you don't really need to upgrade it.
