I use this for gaming. This the first time I built a computer from the empty case up. I had done some changes on my previous pre-built system, cpu change, added a radiator liquid cooler, ram, hdd, ssd. Yet, this was a good experience overall. I put the system together with a Cougar CMX 1000 psu originally. This psu was defective, in the worst way. It powered my system enough to get it to run. But it wouldn't power more than one SSD and wouldn't allow me to add more ram. It took me some time to curse and drink to figure out the psu was the issue. I installed the psu from my old computer, a 650W Thermaltake Bronze and the new system booted and ran correctly hardware wise. I had to resolve a couple of compatibility issues regarding software, rbg stuff, Corsair, Gigabyte, Asus. I disabled or removed some to clean things up. Also had to stop Aurus Engine from running as it auto started and conflicted with MSI Afterburner I use for gpu mgmt. Once I got these things worked out this system is in my opinion a very capable gaming rig. I am able to run all my games on Ultra settings, including MMO Guild Wars 2 in wvw. The G-sync w/Nvidia card works very well. RTX is cool. Some of the components of this build were taken from by old system. The two 60hz monitors, the kb, mouse, and 1 2tb drive and 1 ssd drive as well as the sound card. Overall I really like this system and find it performs very well, new titles like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order are great. Thanks!
