CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
This is the CPU I use in my personal PC - the 6 cores make it great for a workstation and gaming PC.
While a bit older at this point, this GPU is perfect for 1080p gaming, thanks to the 8GB of video ram. Can also run VR games quite smoothly.
Case: Cougar QBX
This small for factor case was a lot of fun to build in. Lots of removable parts that made installation easy, and I love the look of this tiny case.
Solid RAM, nothing too special about it! Since it's paired with a Ryzen 5 3600, I was aiming for RAM with >3000MHz clock speed to fully enable the Ryzen processor.
PSU: Corsair CX650M
Great little power supply. 650 watts is more than enough to power this PC. One thing to note, is that the orientation of this PSU does prevent installation of a CD drive in the Cougar QBX case, which isn't a huge issue if you don't plan on running CDs.
Motherboard: ASRock B550M ITX
Perfectly fine ITX motherboard that supports the current and upcoming AMD chipsets. Nothing too fancy about it, but it serves its purpose.
Motherboard Alternative: ASRock B450 Gaming ITX
SSD: Samsung EVO 500GB
