{All These Parts Were Bought In Canada And These Are Canadian Prices}

So I love my new computer. It has been an interesting project to take on but it is finally complete. It is a great improvement from my laptop (the laptop is a Toshiba so don't worry mac haters). My computer does all I want it to do and more it plays all my games well and some better that my screen can handle (my screen is 60hz). I play Tomb Raider, Saints Row 4, Dirt 3 and Avp(Aliens vs Predator) on high or ultra 1080p and there is no noticeable lag. Sorry I don't have the actual fps benchmark. For minecraft I normally get 70 -140 fps without optifine,depending on what server I am on. Which is a really big improvement from the 15-35 fps on my laptop.

Now for the build process. It took me a while to figure out where to run the cables and my first attempt at cable management ended in not being able to put the side panel back on but other then that it went ok, except for when I tried to remove the optical drive bay cover, its latch almost snapped but luckily it didn't. Everything else went well and I have no complaints or regrets. Oh and I would like to point out the nice rubber grommets in the case that just put the cherry on the top.( I wasn't aware of the rubber grommets until after I bought the case so that was a nice surprise.)

I don't think I will be upgrading my parts anytime soon but if I did I would probably get a fx 8350 and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. Also I would get one of those lg 25 inch ultra wide monitors.

I am planning a similar build soon...how has it held up for you now that you've been running it for half a year?

Its actually held up great, every things still running smoothly. I can easily play Battlefield 4 on ultra 50+ fps. The one problem I have with the build is the noise of the stock cpu cooler. I would opt for an after market cooler. (sorry for the late response)
