It goes up and down depending on stock.

I think I get it now though - it sounds like you're buying from marketplace sellers on Amazon.

Be aware that sometimes manufactures have been known to refuse warranty service where parts are bought not off Amazon themselves but off marketplace sellers on Amazon, or any other marketplace website.

I'd never buy expensive new components off a marketplace seller. If you're happy taking the risk, it's your cash of course.

Like I say, pricing may have been different where and when you bought it, but if buying at current day prices for 2000 USD for gaming including the monitor:

With upto $350 left over for KB+M.
More powerful CPU with overall better and more consistent gaming performance
32gb RAM's a waste - 16gb is more than fine and by the time it's not the rest of the system will be obsolete anyway so it won't matter that you bought 32gb
Instead of buying a load of expensive fans for a budget case, buy a better case / case with those fans included
More straightfoward storage arrangement, more convenient for gaming as it doesn't involve juggling things around.
More powerful GPU

There are plenty of valid reasons that could explain the choices in your spec, but I wouldn't recommend it generally for gaming unless someone had extremely specific needs, probably in addition to gaming.

Also there are plenty of improvements and alternatives to the spec I posted I'm sure - it was just thrown together quickly to show what is possible

Happy to discuss further though might be best to move to a different topic for that to avoid derailing the OP's topic completely

Didn't mean to hijack your thread. I'll shut up. Felt I had to defend "my" choices.
Evidently all my choices were wrong.
Good luck with your build.

I didn't say that. Literally nobody said that. 🤷‍♂️

That way, i might be able to buy expensive PC parts for cheaper.
Or, alternatively, you'll be able to buy better parts for the same (ish) prices as today :)

But perhaps we'll see the R5 3600 come down even further from ~$180 and go for the same low prices we saw the R5 1600 / 2600 at. Here's hoping.

@Lj588 Welcome to the forum :)

To post photos, upload them to imgur and share the link of your photo / album. It will insert them as media into the post.

Can I suggest doing that in a new topic? This topic was for discussing someone else's spec, so your spec will get missed if you post here. Looks lovely!

You could potentially post it here where people are showing off their setups.

Or make a new topic:
