This is the first PC I built and it took me a really long time to get around to actually building it. I got almost all of the parts when they were on sale and I managed to get some really good deals here and there. The budget wasn't entirely focused on graphics performance and I know I could have spent less on some things but I wanted a more well rounded system that will last me a while.
I plan on using this primarily for general use and gaming, but also 3D modeling and CAD applications, some video editing, music production, and photo editing/digital art... I have a bunch of hobbies basically, but nothing intensive enough for me to justify getting the 3770K.
Building it didn't give me too much trouble, aside from the heat sink... next time I'll try to put that on AFTER the motherboard is in the case, or get someone to help me, because you really need three hands for that. My cable management could be better but I didn't really know what to do with the cables in the back... the panel fit on just fine though so I guess it's okay. Oh and the 8-pin CPU power cable BARELY reached, keep that in mind if you get this power supply.
I haven't overclocked anything yet but I'm aiming for 4.2Ghz for now.
