Summary of my history and ethos: Builder since 1999, member since '16. I'm primarily in favor of function over form, maximization of price vs. performance, and getting the most possible life out of a component. Also a cheap *******, relatively speaking; the most I've spent so far on a single part is about $200US. I'm pretty new here, but love to help out when I can, and do my best to remember that others' priorities aren't always the same as my own.
