I use this machine for everyday work, but I also use it as my primary gaming device. I can play just about any title on ultra (all settings), and Bioshock Infinite looks incredible. I'm waiting to get ahold of BF4 in order to test out how my computer holds up to the new frostbite engine. I created this build (my very first build) as a way to have space to expand. I hope to gather a second set of memory sticks to bring my RAM up to 16GB and possibly add another GPU and link it with Crossfire. Also I will eventually add another SSD and 2TB Mechanical Drive. The only real trouble I had when building was the complexity of the CPU after-market cooler. It seems to do wonders for my temps, but I had a BEAST of a time installing it. It required both hands for both my wife and I and it was still pretty hard to keep it centered on the CPU without smearing the thermal paste. Otherwise I'm really proud of my research and VERY happy with my end results so far. I build it in April and have been enjoying it since.
