Hello members of the Tech Power Up Community

It has been a while since I've posted something on this forum and there is a reason for that.
Most of the time I am at work at my new workplace (working as an IT Sales Specialist) and working on my PC.
So since I'm going to be more active in the future I wanted to share my "almost" complete build with you guys.
The idea behind this build is how long older hardware lasts before it runs out of horse power to run most demanding programs and games a user needs in his daily use of a PC.
In this 1st part, ill be focusing on the look and cable management of this machine that I put together (there is 1 more component that I need to install, but it has not arrived yet).
Here is some pictures of the machine (and the full detailed spec list is on my profile where you can check it out).

Here are the pictures of the PC:

Whenever I see a case with lighting like that I expect something ridiculous like i9 9900K and RTX 2080 Super.
This build is more my kind of style with inexpensive gear that can still get the job done.

if u want to spend some money i suggest getting some sleeved cables, they will make the system overall nicer
it looks a bit dusty, give it some good cleaning :)

i would clean the inside of that case with a bit of fabric softener (or macedonian equivalent) to give it a tiny sheen and keep dust from sticking - but some extreme cable management will keep that rig looking good.
