I've never built a computer before, much less done anything with hardware, so this was a learning experience for me. I wanted to build a HTPC/gaming machine for the living room. The purpose of it to replace a Bluray player, Xbox 360, and Apple TV. I started out with plans to use Kaveri when it came out, but decided to go Intel when I saw the price/performance of the APU. I waited for deals on parts and pieced everything together over about 2 1/2 months.
I'm pretty happy with the performance so far. I'm planning on installing a CPU cooler eventually, probably a Noctua NH-C14 or NH-L12. Coming from gaming on a 360, the difference is practically night and day.
