This is my first build, it will get used for mostly gaming. It got delayed by a couple of weeks. I originally ordered the NZXT H230. Tiger Direct then proceeded to do nothing with my order. After a month, the PayPal request for payment from Tiger Direct was canceled. No particular reason I bought the 302, just that it was on Amazon (whom I trust) and had some positive reviews. I also had ordered a 7870 XT at first, but after four weeks and several emails, I was finally told that it was discontinued and they would not stock any more of them.
CPU- Nothing to complain so far
Mobo- Not bad.
RAM- RAM is RAM, really. Does what should do. Would have gotten dual-channel, but it was more expensive.
Storage- I don't know if it's the hard drive or Windows 8, but it boots really fast, much faster than I expected. It's ready to go by the time my monitor turns on.
Video Card- Wish I could have gone AMD here (frickin' Litecoin miners) just to save some money, but it seems to be good. I can update later after I try some games.
Case: Pretty nice case. Did not come with an instruction manual, so I had to look one up online.
Power Supply- Nice. Should have gone modular for better cable management (I know it isn't the best), but it's fine for what it does.
Thanks for looking!
