cable management and design are pretty nice on this.

There are some things i like about this build and there are some things that have me concerned. 1. The motherboard you went with is a nice motherboard, but a b450 board for 70 dollars would have gotten you just as far. 2. the 2200g is a good choice apu, but since you are using a dedicated gpu the integrated graphics aren't gonna be helping you. for 20 dollars more you could have gotten a ryzen 5 1600 (which could be taken from the money saved on the motherboard) 3. the memory is a ddr-2400 kit for 80 dollars. You can get similar kits for about 60 dollars. 4. the rx 560 is over priced. the rx 570 goes for 10 dollars less and is much stronger. right now the rx 560 is a bad value card. 5. i personally would have gotten a 120gb ssd for a boot drive since they are a lot faster and used the 1tb for game storage. 6. Apeiva has a sketchy track record with their power supplies. Im not sure if its one you had laying around or if its one you purchased online. that looks like its a 50 dollar unit and at that price you can get a seasonic 500w bronze unit which i would trust more. your part's aren't particularliy power hungry but im not sure how tight the voltage regulation is on that unit.

Hey thanks for the comment, I actually have since removed the RX560 and let the APU handle graphics, I hastily bought these parts on sale last fall for a father/son build. hes 12 so likely not going to be too worried about intense graphics and such. Anyway I wasn't paying attention when i got the 2200"G" ...oh well. the RX560 is only being used for NAS.

So far as the power supply, yes it was a spare I had layin around. if it blows up so be it.
