This will be the main family computer. Mostly used for common tasks, a littler photo/graphics editing, and a little gaming.

I encountered no issues at all with the build itself and Windows installation. Transferring data was no issue as I had plenty of extra drive bays and power. I just temporarily connected the hard drives from the old computer and transferred the files. Installing software from old computer - another story - what a nightmare. Trying to find all the activation codes and install files from 5 years of use wasn't easy. Finally got it all done and setup though. Wow what a huge upgrade over the 5 year old off the shelf Gateway computer! Thanks to this site for all the help.

Wish my dad would have built our "family computer" like this, great build, that 4690, and 280 should not have any problems with a little gaming lol, +1

How does the graphics card do on major games?

CommMatt 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

It plays Crysis 3. At ~20 FPS, last I heard.

Completely maxed settings? Darn. I thought the 280 was a good card...

CommMatt 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Maxed settings, 1920x1080 resolution.

The power of the 290! xD

How does the 280 only get 20 FPS? It is a good/decent card.

I'm low balling. Most likely it can go higher, but I don't know for sure as A) I don't have it (yet) B) GPUBoss is known to tilt in nVidia's favor (E.G. using a bigger CPU when benchmarking nVidia)

Better to low ball and end up with better results than to high ball and be disappointed, right?
