ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Below is what I've got right now, I'm kind of torn between quality and cost. It's my first time building, so I tried to look for products with few issues. Mostly just looking for confirmation that I didn't make a mistake. But if anyone has any recommendations on cutting costs, or a new build altogether, I'm willing to look.
