Took about 2 days of working slowly and making sure every component and wire was installed correctly. It took the longest to figure out how to install windows 10, lol. I had to create an offline account, I didn't realize that. It kept freezing during services portion install. Took a good 2 hours to figure that out, with some cussing.

Everything went smoothly otherwise, fired up the first try. No issues.

The only difference on the part list is I got the monitor as an open box item on Ebay for 360$. At first I tried the Sceptre c305b ultrawide, but 1080p was not enough so I returned that. That was 315$. For an extra 45$ this Viotek monitor is a steal. Excellent quality. I hear it's basically a Samsung, korean brand. Hopefully it lasts as long as a Samsung, then we'll see if it's worth it.

Also went with a Redragon k589 low profile keyboard, could not find on here to add to part list. Bought from Amazon for 47$. The mouse I got from Best Buy for 35$, the guy selling me on it made a mistake and gave me the wrong price. They actually had it for 70$, so I got lucky there. He was nice enough to give it to me for the price he stated.

Also not listed is 3 intake fans I bought from Amazon for around 10$. Windows 10 key was purchased on Ebay for 3.85$.

Thank you for everyone who helped me put this part list together! Very happy I decided to build myself.

How's that monitor working out for you? I've had my eye on it.

Love it! But only had few days. Excellent value imo. Such a big improvement over the Sceptre I had initially.

I’ve read it’s essentially a Samsung, hope it’s as reliable.
