Workstation/gaming build. Budget: $480. Going to get used storage. Opinions are wanted. Also, do not make a completely different build. Give me opinions on this build! Also, WHY in the world is the mobo so cheap and yet so good? Thanks for the opinions.

Hello and welcome.

This is a tough budget to work with, especially with an OS included.

My only recommendation would be to step down a notch on the cpu and put the difference on the gpu.
