Hand picked the parts for this PC as my main word processing unit during my first year. So far its handled all my documents and spreadsheets excellently, even allowing me to run chrome with multiple tabs open for research! I include the cost of my OS and peripherals as well, incase the total cost seems off. Also, it runs SolidWorks.
Only ran 3DMark FireStorm Demo, but it scored 10587 with no tuning. I'll do more benchmarks if I ever upgrade anything, or if someone asked i suppose.
