Honestly when I originally built this computer a year ago it was only $1200, and I have to say it has proven a very powerful and reliable computer, I have had almost no issues other than buying a hard drive online and it getting screwed up. If you do want to make yourself one of these monster, please buy the hard drive locally, don't even use the one I put in the build itself its really just a placeholder. Anyways, more on the computer, I run editing software and the i7 processor in this really helps speed all the rendering I have to do up. as well as being able to run any game on either high or ultra, depending on what the highest setting is.
this graphics card can literally handle anything, and I havnt even overclocked it a single bit, I run it stock and no issues, however I do notice the price is a bit high for this card, I was lucky enough to snag one on sale last year for $350
