Initially built this computer about a year ago (Black Friday 2013) , hence some of the high prices, however just upgraded it this past black Friday (2014) so I decided I would post here to see how I did... ?
Recent upgrades/not parts from original build include the Liquid Cooler, extra case fan, new thermal paste and the mouse, which I bought a couple months back because the one I had stopped working. ALSO just ordered a R9280 due to major problems with my gtx 660. The PSU is ugly but works wonderfully. HDD is a little slow, but nothing worth complaining about. Love the RAM. And mobo offers everything I need.
Solid benchmarks, despite GPU problems, on med to high setting in games like Tomb Raider, Batman Origins , Dragon Age Inquisition and Borderlands Pre-sequel.
Affordable as I was in high school without a job when I first built it. So how'd I do as a highschooler?
