I build this for the satisfaction of having put together my own machine and as a huge step up from the maxed out 5yr old walmart HP. I already had the PSU, GPU, Monitor and mouse. Everything else is new and each component was chosen for best performance for the money and on a pretty slim budget. I'm still tweaking with the OC... I use this computer to surf the web and play BF3. I usually play aftermath maps on medium and the others on high.
