This is my first pc build. It's a great pc for under $600. Its not a power house, but it can easily run games at high settings and get around 40-60 fps which is fine for me coming from the ps3. But i don't play too many demanding games so i can max most of them out. The only problem i have faced so far is that the lights on the case wont light up. Ive checked the wires and made sure they were in a snug fit, but still nothing. Oh well, its not required to run and it is a cheap case anyway.
