Built for a friend on a $2000 budget. He's using mostly for 2k gaming but will be going to 4k so I will be adding another video card in the near future or pretty much as soon as I see one on sale. I know the I7 is way overkill for gaming but he just liked the sound of it so I went with it. I've been told the captain cooler isn't the best but it runs the cpu overclocked at 4.8 around 31 C at idle and in the mid 50's while gaming so I think it was a good choice. It really compliments the build.
