I use this to do some minor video editing and coding but I also like to game every now and then. The card that I bought is not good for games, it will run most but you have to turn your resolution down quite a bit. I have a few other cards laying around that work for now but I would like to upgrade to something newer.
Built: January 2013 Status: Still up and running but I'm looking into building a newer, much better system and giving this one to a friend
Just replaced the graphics card with an XFX R7-240A-CNF4 to give me a bit more power on a budget. I wanted to go higher, like maybe a 270 but that's all I could afford. However, I do plan on building a whole new system once I get a better job.
Here's a link to the parts I have picked for my next one: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/cmorien13/saved/1XAA
