Good job! I just put together a similar build for a friend's kid's first gaming rig. The little Ryzens are really impressive for $100 bucks.

Perhaps that case is what fit into the budget at the time...or maybe they just liked it. Regardless, I believe Sensible_Systems was asking the builder about the case, not your opinion of if the case would be recommended. However, your experience with this case would be appreciated, except for a couple of things...None of your comments are positive (profile shows all comments) and punctuation is completely missing. Credibility comes from a record of intellectual (not critical) suggestions and questions, not telling people their PSU or case or whatever is crap.

Warner Robins, Georgia. Very well done museum. https://www.museumofaviation.org/ From first hand experience, the armament museum at Eglin Florida, the Naval Aviation museum in Pensacola (Home of the Blue Angels), and the USMC museum (not specifically aviation obviously) in Quatico VA are very cool as well. There's plenty though! https://listosaur.com/history/10-great-aviation-museums-in-the-united-states/ Cheers and have fun!

Big 'high five' and thumbs up for a job well done. I'm retired from the USAF and I have friends that restore old aircraft at the big museum here. Love what you did with this. Cheers!

I will politely disagree with 'no benefit to using an APU' and 'lazy' pick. Since it's November and prices change daily, specific cost isn't really a debate. (For the record, the Ryzen 2 1200 is $89 today and the 2200G is $95. I'd call it a wash.) So about that 'no benefit to using an APU'. The 2200G loses cache and has idle cores when paired with a GPU, that's true. It's still 8 to 10% faster in gaming than it's little sister the Ryzen 3 1200. And here's the big bonus: when a computer has a major OS fail or smokes a component, onboard video becomes a great troubleshooting tool. It's nice and easy to get the mobo bios/UEFI on the screen with all the cards/hard drives/etc removed then start adding one component at a time until you find the culprit. Intel has had built in video for years. Except for mobo testing and troubleshooting, never used it. When my buddy popped his video card capacitors, we verified everything else was good to go then installed a new card. Does your car have a spare tire just in case? Same thing here.
