Project Skellington is a Nightmare Before Christmas themed budget build. All prices shown include tax and shipping.
Ryzen 5 1600 - Purchased at MicroCenter using their credit card that gives 5% off. Unmatched price to performance. A six core twelve thread processor for $80 is just insane...good time to be a builder.
AsRock B450M Pro4 - Purchased at Microcenter with a $30 discount bundled with the Ryzen 1600 using the MicroCenter credit card for an additional 5% off. Solid B450 board with most modern features (4 RAM slots, 3-pin and 4-pin RGB headers. The power delivery is okay, I would not recommend this board if you're a serious overclocker and have a Ryzen 7.
Adata XPG Gammix D10 16gb - I buy this all of the time off of Rakuten. They often come with 15% off with code ADA15. 3000mhz is probably the minimum I would recommend for Ryzen. For less than $60 these sticks look good and can be overclocked to 3200 at CL16 relatively easily. Haven't had any issues with them so far.
PowerColor Radeon RX 570 4gb - This is the only used part for the build. Purchased from Ebay for $80, this is the current budget build gpu king. I usually try to get the 8gb variant for $80...I can sometimes get the 4gb variant for a little less. A lot of pixels pushed for $80...
darkFlash DLM 21 - First time using this case and I'm impressed. Purchased from Newegg. It's definitely a budget case, the metal is thin and doesn't come with fans. Not much good looking options for less than $50 delivered out there. This one I think looks great.
darkFlash Aurora 120mm RGB fans - I've used these in the past. Good looking RGB fans that come with a remote control or they can be connected to the motherboard. I personally like the using the controller as it has more options than the motherboard manufacturer's RGB software.
EVGA BT 500W - Cheapest power supply I could find at the time that has black cables...I refuse to buy ketchup and mustard. Purchased off of B&H Photo.
First build in awhile that didn't have any rebates.
Planning on buying a used 1tb Western Digital Blue 7200rpm HDD when I can get one for around $20. The mods are simply black and white spraypaint, acylic, and vinyl cut on a Cricut Explore Air. I figure it's about $15 in materials. So total cost of build with the HDD and case mods is about $430.
UPDATE: Sold for $600 on Facebook Marketplace within 6 hours of posting.
