Have it hooked up to an old 42" flat panel and use an xbox 360 contoller. Coupled with the Steam big picture it will be a great console replacement for years to come with plenty of options to expand as long I can buy and install before my wife gets home.
Originally started with AMD 4170 ocd to 5.05ghz (stable) and a cheap MSI mobo bought it with only the intention updating a prior build, worked well however my gpu underperformed compared to most benchmarks. Decided to go all out and get the i5 based on toms guide and personal preference I went with the Asus mobo. Picked up at least 15% more fps and overall stability. Not my first build but the first time I swapped out mobo and cpu within 3 months.
