The name 'Monolith' was inspired by the foreign black monolith in Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey.' This is essentially a mid-range workstation when I'm out of the office, and mid-range gaming config when I'm less busy.

Overall I've been pretty happy with everything, save some issues with the first POST (apparently these MSI AM3+ boards are known to have such issues). I was able to pick up most of the components on sale over the Holidays, helping reduce cost on already fairly affordable items.

This was a fairly cheap, easy-to-assemble AMD focused-build.

**Apologies for some of the blurry running images - I'll be updating soon with more crisp versions. Thanks!!
