Luna is a budget computer that I've been fixing up. The project started when I found the motherboard, CPU & RAM at a local second hand store. I added a 1TB hard drive, an inexpensive power supply, a budget case and my old AMD HD 7850. I'm looking to get a budget SSD for the operating system next. Currently Luna is running Linux Mint 19 Tara. I mostly use it to watch Youtube/Twitch on and browse the web.

 

Luna - Rosewill Micro ATX FBM-06

Pardon the smudges on the front panel.

 

Interior View

I've intentionally avoided RGB and bright flashy lights with this build and instead opted for a cleaner simpler and hopefully more sophisticated look. I realize the IDE ribbon is still an eyesore and detracts from that though.

 

Cable Mangement

Sweeping things under the rug.

I switched from the old radeon driver to the newer amdgpu (which performs significantly better) so my benchmarks are a little out of date.
