For fun, I put together a "bargain" system based on Intel G5500 ($100) and ASUS B365M-A ($80), but because there are so many other performance pain points where I'm not willing to compromise (cooler, power supply, hard drive…), I couldn't get the total system cost below $700.

As long as I'm spending The Big Bucks (like, anything more than $20 😅 ), I always feel like I should go big or go home…as long as it's within my means, of course.



People wonder where I get this from.

When my dad buys anything that isn't a house or a car, anyone can tell you that he probably got "the most expensive one" of whatever it is 😂
