I had a budget of <$1000 and wanted it to be a balanced college and some gaming. I wanted to try out a SSD and this one is amazingly fast, load time is around 10s. I was skeptical about anything but Corsair memory but this G.Skill Ares looks nice and has no issues with the XMP profile dropping the latency to 9 @ 1600mhz. The PSU I am honestly impressed with for the price. The only complaint I have it the motherboard power cable is way to short and I cant run it behind the plate to hide the cable better. Besides that it runs super quiet and cool after hours of gaming and for <$50 it was a good choice IMO. I have yet to do any overclocking cause this does things so fast, instant is more like it, so why would I overclock when I don't need to yet! As far as the case goes, wow those 200mm fans are silent and move A LOT of air! I just put in the optional second top 200mm exhaust and 200mm side intake fans to chill her down even more. No issues with overheating but if they have slots why not fill em up you know? Overall this build went together super smooth and first time power button worked so I couldn't have been happier or asked for more.
D3 max settings, instant alt+tabs if needed and it doesn't kill the electric bill TOO bad haha. Very happy with what I have.
Total I spend about $1025 with $125 in Rebates and free shipping on everything. Newegg FTW!
