First gaming computer, budget was $2000. Obviously went a bit over, but I already had the peripherals and the "monitor," which is a television. So far very happy with it, haven't got a game that really pushes its limits though yet, so when my savings account recovers I'll get Crysis for it and answer the age-old question. Pretty happy with all the hardware, except the case. It's good for what it costed, but there are a few issues: I can't figure out how to get the power LED to work, the connection for it on the case does not match the mobo connection. I feel like I'm missing something here? The HDD light doesn't work either, and that connection did match, so I don't know if I did something wrong or if it just doesn't work with SSDs. My biggest problem is not actually the fault of the case, it's my fault, but my CPU cooler is too tall. It would fit in the case if it weren't for the fan on the see-through door, but until I figure out how to take that fan off, or get a different cooler, or a different case, I can't actually put the door on. Other than that, everything is beautiful. I had a lot of fun building this thing and I'm quite happy with all my parts (sans case, which was sort of a placeholder anyway). Want to add one more hard drive to back up to, and a different case.
