Funny to see the parts for his $5000 build on eBay now for pennies
Yeah its still a fun platform to screw around with because the parts are so cheap, kill a cpu? That's fine, there's probably another one you can get for $20. Only pricey thing are the boards for some reason, my 790i cost $174 and that ain't even new, which I believe is similar to the ASUS version being an SLI board.

CPU’s I’ve owned: P4 630, P4 631, C2D E6320, C2D E6700, X3230, QX9650, X5470, i5 655K, i7 3770K ES, Pentium 2020M, i5 4690K, i7 5775C, Athlon XP 3200+, E2-1800, Athlon 64 X2 1.8GHz, A10 4600M, Ryzen 5 2600X, Ryzen 9 3900X
