I dunno, I just really like the products they make. True, it is annoying that they have a nonstandard bottom row, but I haven't noticed anything else bad about my current keyboard.

Yeah, they are. No clue how I didn't notice that until now.

I'm surprised that thing is $125. I'd recommend a Corsair keyboard, specifically the K68. It's around the same price range of the Ornata Chroma and shares many of its features. If you want something a little nicer than the K68, you can go all the way to the $200 K95 RGB Platinum (the black version is $140 right now, $60 off) if you're a total RGB nut head like me.

The Night Eye extension automatically turns any web page into dark mode. It is quite buddy, though.

Yes, yes, I agree! You could opt for a GTX model, but I would go for RTX because it's newer and will become outdated in less time. I'm not that well versed in AMD cards, though, so I can't give any advice for that.

It seems a little silly to me having an i9 but only 16 GB of RAM. It's very convenient having more RAM than you probably need. And if you're having an i9, you're probably gonna need those extra 16 GBs.

But, the thing that by far sticks out the most: only 250 GB?? If I were you, I'd get at least 500 GB of M.2 SSD (because SATA is getting very old), and some 2-4 TB of M.2/SATA/HDD storage (maybe get a 1 TB SATA and a 2-4TB HDD).

You might scoff at 500 GB or 1 TB of SSD and say that you don't need it, opting for 250 GB (heck, I did the same on my first rig). Trust me: those 250 GB run out real fast. I don't even have 10 Steam games installed on my SSD right now.

Other than that, it looks good.

I personally would've gone with an i7 rather than an i5. Also, I've filled up my 250GB SSD very fast (and I have less than ten Steam games) so you may want to upgrade to a 500GB model soon. Other than that, it looks like a solid build.

Yeah, it'd be very convenient (and maybe the only option) to plug the speakers into the monitor. The computer and both consoles are connected to the same monitor at the moment. I've tried to plug the Z337s into the monitor and not one of the three devices worked.

I don't know if I made it very clear, and sorry if I didn't, but I've already set up my computer to the speakers. What I want is for the Switch and Wii U to be connected. The question is: how. I've already put up my Dad's idea on how to do things, but I feel like there'd be an easier way. Just plugging the 3.5mm jack into the monitor doesn't work. I've tried on both of my consoles.

I'm not using the Bluetooth because it blips on and off for me. I don't know if it's because of my Bluetooth dongle, but it doesn't matter. I use the 3.5mm jack included to connect the two and it works just fine. Also, I've looked in the settings in the Switch and Wii U and it doesn't look like Bluetooth is an option.

I've heard somewhere that Blender doesn't support AMD GPUs, but I've combed through the internet and I haven't seen anything as such. Also, I forgot to mention a website called Blenchmark where users render a scene with their GPUs and send over their data. It may come in handy.

I'm not an expert on building computers, as I've only built one with the help of my dad, but I think what would need to be prioritized in a system like this is the GPU, RAM, and storage.

For a low end computer like that, I'd say that you really don't need a liquid cooler. I have a 1k computer and using fans works fine for me.
