Description

Built for a friend in September 2012. He wanted a ~$900 machine for gaming and animation software.

I would not personally recommend the Thermaltake Commander case. You are required to bend the metal PCI slot pieces to place your video card through, with no way of putting them back when unused. Definitely a cost-cut on Thermaltake's part. The case's cable management was terrible, there was next to none. Spend a few more bucks on a better case.

Other than the shoddy case, this build was fantastic overall.

Brilliant build. The only tiny change I would make if it's for animations and stuff would be adding an extra 2 or 4GB of RAM.

Epic build anyway, though :D

Well, the case looks somewhat nice, although I could only imagine having to bend all of that.

Awesome build! (with the exception of the case). That MSI power edition 660ti is just such a solid video card, i honestly don't know why anyone would get something else.

Yeah, I would add 4 to 8 gb of RAM for animation, and I would have saved 9 bucks on the optical drive and gotten a lite-on, but then again, it is nice to be able to say it's Asus. I doublt you'll have any problems whatsoever playing games at 1080p.
