I use this PC for gaming (of course). I chose the parts by research on each individual part. It took me awhile to choose my parts, but it all seemed to be a comfortable selection for me. Of course this is my first build so it is not perfect. I consider this my newbie build, I had minimal help from any of my 'Master Race' friends who also own Gaming PC's. They thought my choices were great for my price range ($900-$1500) and were also 'optimal'. I call it the $1300 fan because of the price, and it has 7 fans. One fan being the 200mm 1200 RPM front fan, the 150mm rear and bottom fans (that's 3). Then we have the GTX 760 Gigabyte Windforce which has 3 fans built in (now 6). Lastly, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO's 120mm - 2000 RPM fan & heatsink CPU Cooler.
I'm in shock with this thing anyways, it gets great frame rate playing the latest games. I've done minimal benchmarks but playing DayZ, BF4, Ghosts, CS:GO, GTA IV, ARMA 3, and plenty more games I have noticed high frames averaging around 60-100. Game-play is seamless with this on the highest settings. It's a great first pc in my opinion and I'm glad I upgraded to the Master Race.
My old Asus K52n was great for playing Garry's Mod and... uh.. yeah that was it. (Waste of $600)
Also the three pictures of the actual PC was directly after my friends and I finished building it on my table, it is now moved off of it.. no worries. And I used my old mouse in case any of you noticed it.
I've had no problems with it so far, feel free to correct any of my newbie decisions in the comments!
