Final Thoughts and Opinions

I'm trying to go with a green theme and will be buying led strips separately. Is there any way that this build could be cheaper and still look great and perform the same? I can't find or see anything that would go better with this build. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Hello and welcome.

I ended up not getting much success here. Did some minor changes, but only got the price down by $30. But hey, now you got green GPU too!
