This is my first ever build. Put together the parts list in about 1 hour and ordered them right away. All parts arrived within a week and built it right away. My reason for building is some moderate gaming. Didn't know whether id be ashamed of my rapid decision making but I am very pleased with the performance runs almost anything I've thrown at it at max graphics with no lag or overheating. I'm currently over clocking the gpu but even with out an overclock average fps never drops below 30 fps which was good enough for me. My monitor is actually my 32inch tv only thing i want to upgrade is my keyboard until i make a new build in a year or 2.
