decided to build my first gaming machine.
Actual price paid with tax/shipping:$1193.22 (excluding monitor and keyboard)
Tested Metro 2033 and Borderlands 2 both getting over 100fps maxed out settings.
The two biggest surprises in this build was the SSD and the Monitor. I have never used an SSD or a 120hz monitor so i was skeptical on the extra money. Yes, they as good as everyone says they are. The speed of the ssd is truly amazing, and the 120hz refresh rate on the monitor takes FPS gaming to a new level.
I am really enjoying this build.
