This is not a dedicated gaming Rig. I Work at a Pawn Shop and do all of the computer repairs/maintenance for the store. I use this setup primarily for Data Transfer/Backup/Recovery, Download/Storage of Music/Movies/Applications, Gaming and surfing the net. This is a build i purchased the parts for over 30 days. I used a combo of NewEgg, Ebay, and Amazon Prime. Most parts are used, few are new. Cost to Performance ratio was my primary objective. There is a 10000RPM 80Gb WD Raptor my OS is installed on, already had that before I started the build. As far as gaming i play the occasional game of TF2, Ruse, MW3, Black Ops/BO2, Counter Strike:GO, Ghosts and whatever else my buddies throw my way from time to time. I am currently a Semi-Professional Computer Tech/Desktop PC Builder with more than 10 years in the industry, and 5 years of combined Military/Military IT Sector Contracting. Feel free to post questions/comments/Haterade.Sorry for Sub Par pics via my Mobile device build day, my finger is blocking the Radiator in the best pic. I had initially purchased a Asus HD7770 but immediately put it on ebay, and sold it for a 10 dollar loss. Purchased the XFX R9 270X from BestBuy. Paid Full retail + tax YIKES!
