I had no choice on this one. Microcenter dropped the price on the Ryzen 5 1600 to $100. Technically you are not supposed to get the $30 bundle discount but the manager gave it to me anyway. The Asus Tuf b450 plus is normally $120. Open box it was $72 because it was missing Sata cables. With the $30 combo discount it came down to $42.
Microcenter also has the inland Nvme m.2 on sale for $40. I used the $5 coupon to bring it down to $35.
Gpu was the only thing I bought used on ebay for $104 after coupon. The MK2 only came out in July and MSi has transferable warranties.
Ram was a deal from rakuten. $88 after coupon for 16gb of 3000mhz ram.
Case was from Newegg $56 after rebate.
PSU also from Newegg $34 after rebate.
I am going to flip this but it was a lot of fun building.
I seem to enjoy building Gaming PCs way more than playing games. Lol
