    Let's have some fun here...show us what you use for a PC.

    Guidelines.....
    -Any OS is welcome.
    -Any setup (Desktop/laptop) is welcome.
    -This is fun discussion. Ask what you like about a certain set up, but please keep it civil.
    -Optional pictures of the guts. But hey...please show them. This should make the thread more fun!!!
    -Please list what is in the PC to the best of your ability.
    -What did you get or build this for?

    I'll go first:
    I recently built a PC for the purpose of trying my hand at building custom ROMs, another attempt at building apps, and a media center.

    The list:
    1. Corsair 200R case
    2. Corsair's CX750 M power supply 80+ Bronze
    3. Intel i3-6100 Skylake; stock CPU cooler
    4. Gigabyte H170-D3HP Motherboard
    5. 16 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2133MHz RAM
    6. 250GB Samsung EVO SSD (OS resides here)
    7. WD 1TB Blue HDD 7200 RPM.

    I currently have Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for the OS on this PC.

    This was my first PC that I built. I was quite excited for it (I'm sure the other Ambassadors can verify this. I don't know how many times I pinged them about what I was getting...)

    Edit: Sorry about the quality....I have limited physical space to get a camera in to take a picture. Also the internal photo...it's been turned 90 degrees...no idea why.

    Game One headset; very nice. I have one myself for the XBox. I would not hesitate to buy them again.
    ASUS monitors, correct?

    The red on the case....is that a light, or just a colored panel?
    LED, can make it whatever color you want.

    Just noticed too. Actually...we have a lot of similarities in our builds. What inspired yours?

    This is what inspired mine:

    I watched several of his videos before, but this was the one that made me seriously consider it. Between the USB-C (I have a Nexus 5X) and the fact that the parts in total was really inexpensive for brands, I figured, why not?

    Now...I want to build another one...lol
