Built this for gaming and school, but mostly gaming. It runs everything I wish, at maximum settings. I threw in a NZXT HUE RGB Led Controller for cosmetics, I bought the keyboard and mouse for cosmetics as well, but turns out they are also really nice. The headphones were bought later, People apparently don't like to hear my gaming. Overall, im very happy with all of the products that went into this machine. I had no snags putting it together, and It has been running nicely ever since.
