I wanted a PC that could serve as a general computer and handle games. I'm not planning on overclocking.
I bought all of the components during Black Friday promotions.
So far I've been playing Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Call of Duty AW Multiplayer (hooray Steam!) and it's handling it great. My under-load temps have been decent.
