Built this computer almost a year ago and so far it's been great.
I like this build +1
I'm sure it still runs many games beastmode
I am still blown away by how well it handles games although my previous gaming setup was a laptop with a gt240m in it :)
Could be worse. You could've had Intel "HD" Graphics...
(Even though mine run Minecraft on Far/Fancy at 30 FPS XD)
this is a good build even if you built it today. Only thing is I would have went windows 8.
I've heard a lot of great things about windows 8 and plan on switching soon.
wait until 8.1 is released. the 8.1 preview is awesome and a huge improvement over standard windows 8. I honestly think it is far superior to windows 7 but that is just my opinion.
Isn't 8.1 gonna be released for free?
yes. it is just an update, but I would wait to buy it until 8.1 is officially released at this point that way you only have to worry about installing windows once.
Definitely a solid build, and good cable management, do you remember how much you paid?
I'm not sure off the top of my head but I will be updating the list once I go through the receipts. I know I got the processor and motherboard from the combo at Microcenter and most of the other parts I got from Newegg.
