This was my first build and I use it as my main gaming rig. I play various graphic intensive games and they've all flowed flawlessly so far. I am a bit inexperienced and I was afraid that I had faced the CPU cooler backwards or was drawing heat into the machine instead of out but no warning temps yet! I use the second monitor for multitasking and school work, etc. I had hoped to set up a 3-monitor immersive display but it ended up being too big for the desk I have. The tower ended up being larger than I expected and the cables aren't pretty but it does the job! As far as the specs go...well, like I said, I'm new to the world of PC building. I just wanted to create a build that would play any game I wanted and would last for some time without needing major upgrades.
