I wanted a gaming PC for the next upcoming games that will be coming out. (Battlefield 4, etc. etc.) That could at least play them in high, thru max settings. I went with AMD because they are cheaper then Intel, and work almost just as good while saving $800. I'm going with NVIDIA Graphics cards, for the better performance on them. After receiving the parts I decided to go back and return the 670 for a 770, for the extra $80. Not only for the better benchmarking, but just in case future games move away from the 600 series. I built the computer in a single day. (About 5 hours max.) and I couldn't be happier. It OC's itself without ever pushing past 50 Degrees Celsius.
