This was my very first PC build, a few of my mates have built PC's before and they got me into it. They helped me with the build and the people in the forum at tek syndicate were extremely helpful.
I bought this for mainly gaming (BF3, Black Ops 2 etc) and some school work and general web browsing.
So far i haven't had any issues whatsoever, it has been awesome and have no regrets.
The only reason i didn't buy a CPU cooler is because i knew i wasn't going to be overclocking straight away and i put my money towards the graphics card.
Overall it costed me $1180.
