Hello, I currently have no PC at home and would like to build my very first one, mainly to get into coding. However, I would also use it as my Plex media server and if it's not too far off budget I would future-proof it in case I get into gaming or VR.
I picked the current parts list mostly just based on what had the highest rating for each recommended part, but I'm really not sure what's necessary or where I can decrease costs.
If possible, I'd like to find parts that can accommodate a purple, blue, white lighting style, in a black case with a full tempered glass side panel. I'd appreciate any advice on what I can replace with a less expensive part or if anything is incompatible, as well as what will make for a fairly simple build since I have zero experience.
