Description

This is my first ever build, no more ordering overpriced pre-builts for me! This is primarily gaming/web-surfing/everyday use. My old computer couldn't handle games I wanted to play on even their lowest settings (Metro 2033, Arma 3 alpha) and even L4D2 was playable but still not that smooth. Now it handles all of them like a champ on high settings.

*11/9/13 free upgrade to a 7970 from 7850 (gift from someone I know in the vidya industry). This bumped the Windows Experience rating for graphics from 7.5 to 7.9 (hell yeah). The card is directly from AMD Radeon so I just chose the manufacturer model it looks like the most.

How is your computer now that youve had it for a while, and how is that case compared to say: a Corsair 200r?

Sorry for the late reply, haven't logged in for a while. It runs perfect, its my first build so I was nervous of it performing over time but its been great. It can eat up any games I play and after adding the SSD boot-up is superfast and other things like Arma 3 and Firefox are much snappier. The Source 210 Elite is a nice case for the price, lots of bays for drives and good cable management options. Can't comment on the 200r, all that I know is that the NZXT is a bit cheaper. Honestly I think the only thing about the case is whether or not you like the looks of one over the other or want to save a few bucks.
