TheSecurityGuy I pretty recent built a halfway decent PC, well more accurately one in a nice case. Specs

Fractal Design Define Mini mATX Case Bought Used for $36

Intel Xeon E5-2630 v3 8c 16t, I purchased this on eBay for $67.48

Hyper 212 Evo (probably should be using something better, but it keeps it pretty cool, high 40s to high 50s) given as a gift $30 originally

EVGA GTX 1070 FTW 8GB. I love this card, I love most EVGA products. I bought this on Mercari for like $220

1 x 16GB random 16GB DDR4 Module from Kingston, It was cheap so I don't see any issues, it was $25.

1 x 8GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance, that I got for $20.25 including shipping.

Gigabyte G1 Gaming X99-Ultra Gaming, I love this board so pretty and great for what I paid, I bought it for $146.69 including shipping on eBay.

Ultra X3 1000W PSU Half-way decent, I paid like $10 for it, works like a charm, fully modular.

SanDisk 500GB Ultra 3D SSD Bought New from BestBuy for $70

2 x Intel 520 Series 480GB SSDs that I bought for $63 total on Mercari

500GB WD Blue WD5000AAKS HDD that came from some Dell Workstation PC that I used to use, total cost $)

1TB Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 HDD, bought from some guy at a flea market, total cost $2

2TB WD Green Drive that I pulled from an Apple Time Capsule, total cost $35

So, after reading through that, some of you may be wondering some things, like how and why tf am I using a full-sized ATX board in an mATX case? Well carefully lmao, how did you end up with such a weird build? cheap stuff.

I purchased a 120GB SSD that's coming in the mail, so that will be added soon, I would enjoy a bigger case, but I don't have the cash at the moment but I would like suggestions, thanks <3 <3.

I would enjoy any comments concerns, and anything else you have to say.
