I got tired of buying laptops here and there, so I saved lots of money to build myself my first ever premium gaming rig. I wanted to high quality parts which is why the price is so high :P. I mainly use this machine for light to moderate gaming (also do some heavy gaming on little occasions) and other every day tasks. I think gaming rigs are awesome, because they pack a beastly punch and can be upgraded. The XNEZ very works well and it is very quiet. In the future I am planning to upgrade it to make it more powerful and more quiet.
