    Standoffs were pre-installed on both cases. I shorted my first DIY PC 15 years ago because I forgot to put the standoffs. So I really make sure not to make THIS mistake again! :)

    I just made an edit too in my list. I deleted Deus Ex and Black Desert Online. I added Dark Souls 3 and VR. Is VR itself a viable pick? Like VR in general? :D If not I stay with Black Desert.
