This is a build that I've been working on for some time, somewhere around a year and a half. So I've been buying these parts whenever I can over that timespan. The graphics card is getting a little dated as well as the hard drives, but I plan to drop and SSD and a R9 280X in there soon!
I'm not really a hardcore gamer, but I play a lot of BF4 whenever I can. So my overall goal of this was to play BF4 at 60FPS, as well as a little bit of video/photo editing using Adobe CC. With this current build, I'm getting 60 FPS on BF4 with mostly ultra settings.
