Compared to my first build, this one is A LOT better. I saved my RAM and OS from the last build, so everything else is brand spanking new. Saving up for a better GPU but the R9 270x is doing it's job for now. Only problem I had was getting a 1tb WD HDD to work, for some reason my BIOS wouldn't recognize it whatsoever, even after buying a 2nd one. A little frustrated by that as I'm using an external 1tb HDD right now, but I still got work to do.
