This is a gaming (and other general use) machine, that I made because I've always wanted one. This is my first desktop in many years, as I've been on laptops for years now. Being my first build, I wasn't sure how it would go, but it actually went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only thing I wish was different was the motherboard, I was originally going to go with a microATX case, but opted for a larger case in the end, and never switched the mobo choice. I get a bit of a laugh when I glance into the case, because of the mismatched color scheme and less-than-stellar cable management. I am going to grab a new keyboard and mouse really soon, as well as an optical drive. (I decided I wanted one after all, now that I'm using it a bit.) Also for future plans is possibly another HDD or an SSD as I plan to possibly do a dual boot with Linux in the future.
