2021 New Desktop

I decided it was time to build a new desktop for myself.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core, 12-Thread Unlocked
MSI ProSeries Micro-ATX Motherboard (B450M PRO-VDH Max)
Hynix IC 32GB KIT(2x16GB) DDR4 3200MHz PC4-25600 CL16 1.35V
Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD
Corsair CX Series 550 Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Modular Power Supply
Thermaltake Versa H17 Black Micro ATX Mini Tower
Antec 120mm Case Fan (5)
ThreeBulls 2 Pack 4-Pin PWM Fan Splitter Cable

I reused my old MSI GT 1030 2GD4 LP OC which helped to keep the price down to $660. I typically build at a pretty low budget trying to get the most bang for my buck.

This desktop will be running Ubuntu Linux 20.04.
