I plan to use this mostly for gaming. Everything went smoothly. It was my first build in over 6 years. Still hate cables and routing, something the 900 lacks a bit. I chose parts based on performance and price. I initially had cheaper items slated for purchase, but some good sales pushed me to nicer items like the CPU, Case, and Motherboard. Rebates mostly counteracted tax and shipping.
The biggest scare was when I set aside my modular power cables and then forgot about them. After cursing Antec for a few minutes, I found them and all was well. I think I went overboard with 16gb ram especially given the price increase lately. The Video Card is big, but luckily the case is spacious. I'm still rocking the classic Logitech G15 keyboard and MX518 mouse but I don't see them on this list. I also have an ancient Logitech X-530 5.1 system as well.
The boot-up speed is crazy fast on the SSD. I had to get Win7 to recognize the 1Tb HDD. The antenna on the Rosewill card was giving me 30-40% so I used my old wire/base antenna from MSI and now I get 85% connection. The monitor is awesome. Still need to test out everything some more and benchmark it. The first time everything shut down for power-saving mode, it made me think I had a big failure. Just hit the power button and everything was back to normal. Phew.
