    If it works, it works. Has a similar Frankenstein's Monster feeling to the one mine has.

    +1 @BaccaBoss2

    Use what works and you can afford. If I was to be critical I might suggest look at upgrading the core of the PC. The CPU, RAM, and Motherboard. CPUs and Motherboards are pretty cheep anymore but RAM is what will typically kill a budget. Everything else is great but you could always replace the Logitech g502 with Razer mouse :wink_:

    To say that RAM is a budget-killer is a hyperbolic understatement. The chip shortage makes building a computer at decent prices nearly impossible nowadays. Pretty soon it might be cheaper for companies building a server farm to create their own factory to build RAM than to buy it from a supplier.

    Yeah I am looking at upgrading for a 4th gen i7 and the CPU and Motherboard will cost less together then all of my RAM. I can't believe it has gotten to this level.
