Build Description

This a 10+ year desktop replacement build. I wanted to build a new desktop to upgrade from a 10+ year old one I've had that I kept upgrading. I went for the best value for money build I could put together that would be good as a generic all around PC for programming and gaming. I put together an MSI Tomahawk WiFi motherboard, with a Ryzen 5600X CPU, the first time in my life I build an AMD PC I have been building Intel based ones since the 386SX generation CPUs, and a Geforce RTX 3060 GPU, with a total of 32 GB Ram. I managed to keep the cost of everything including a Dell S3221Qs monitor at just around the 2K range including tax. Here's a full list of the components:
CPU : Amd Ryzen 5 5600X
Motherboard: MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk WIFI AM4 AMD
GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 ti XC
Case: Fractal Design Meshify S2
PSU: EVGA Supernova 650 G5 80 Plus Gold 650W
Memory: G. Skill Ripjaws V 32GB DDR4-3600 PC4-28800
Storage: Inland Premium 1TB SSD 3D Nand M.2 2280 PCIe MVMe 3.0x4
Monitor: Dell S3221QS
Keyboard: Azio MK HUE
AIO Cooling: MSI MAG CORELIQUID 240R

Favorite Feature

Really like how quiet it is and how fast it boots up windows 10 (prob around 5 secs after the bios post)
