I have been doing tons and tons of research on this pc ever since late July when Ryzen 3 released. My budget varied a ton from then till now but I am glad with all my purchases and picked up all these parts for super good deals! I haven't had any problems with this PC at all and it even booted on my first try! If you are in the market for a wifi adapter, definetly look into the powerline adapters because I am getting speeds close to 100 Mbps with the one I have which is way better than any wifi adapter could get you. Post any questions in the comment section! Check it out!

p.s. I had the headset, monitors, keyboard, and mouse from my house. The rest was purchased from Micro Center except for the ram which was purchased from Amazon.
Can't say enough about this CPU. I picked it up for $169.99 from Micro Center and it has been a dream to have in my build! I love the Ryzen Master software that is super easy to use allowing you to adjust voltage and frequency of cpu and ram without having to go to the BIOS. The power that comes with this cpu, I believe is unparalleled to any other cpu for the price I picked it up for. Always look out for deals at Micro Center and the subreddit, https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/
Looks fantastic in with all of its LED's and functions perfectly for me. The BIOS is very simple to navigate and I haven't had one single problem with this board! Can't say enough about how good it looks.
Hey, its 16gb of RAM that gives me space to upgrade to 32Gb in the future. It works well with my Ryzen 5 1600 and I haven't into any problems thus far!
This is a fantastic drive for a gaming pc and can hold tons and tons of games! I have not had any problems with this sshd and it stays nice and cool.
This card surprised me with how well it can overclock. I was able to get this card up to 1949Mhz gpu clock and 4998 Mhz memory clock while staying very stable. I could probably get another 100-200 Mhz out of the memory but I am not a crazy OC'er! I asked the question like many if 3Gb of vram was going to be enough and every game I own I have been at Max settings, above 60 fps. Here is all of my games.

I absolutely love this case but I do have one problem with it which I will list at the end of my review. I love the look and RGB fans on this case. While you can only choose from a select amount of colors, I love the different effects you can add to the LED's on the fans and on my MSI B350 Tomahawk motherboard which came with LED lighting it. They both synced up perfectly and make my build look sooo good. The problem I have with this case is that the front panel severely blocks air intake from the 3 fans in the front of the case. The bottom opening barely even lets air to the fans so they are left to the top opening which is so tiny. I find myself taking off the front panel which I am doing heavy tasks that will produce some heat in my system. It is so bad that you can barely feel the fans pushing air with the front panel on but when you take it off, the fans push air to back of the case. Other than that, I love the case and it fits all of my needs as a complete beginner builder with an eye for good looking parts in my pc. Check out my build to see what it looks like!!!
This monitor is great for $150 which is the price I picked it up for. While there is some minimal light bleeding that does occur but does not affect me too much, it was a massive upgrade from my previous old 19" monitor. I would recommend this monitor to those who are not doing anything professionally but just want a larger monitor that still looks great!
