I built this PC for gaming a a little video editing. The price that you see here is not what I paid for it. I paid around $350- $360 for it. I did this by buying the parts at different times and around Black Friday and Christmas. Everything went very well and I am very pleased with the performance, considering I come from a Core2 Duo@2 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. I chose this case for its looks and space for cable management. I chose this CPU based on its price to performance, and it has certainly delivered. I picked the cooler for a cheap replacement to the stock cooler and i wanted something that was smaller and looked better than the hyper 212 evo, but I do have one complaint about it and that is that mounting for the AMD socket was hard to do. I didn't list the graphics card in this build, even though you will need one with this processor, because I plan to upgrade very soon. This was my first SSD and man I am hooked. When you can start a PC in 13 seconds compared to 13 minutes it is like you are in a dream. This was my first build and I am very glad that none of the parts came DOA. *UPDATE: fixed the psu sound and finally got a better graphics card but no the last one tbh.
Very capable processor for its price.
Kept my 860k cool for a great price, but mounting was very hard for AMD.
Great board in almost every aspect except for that there is no VRMs cooler.
First SSD and was not disappointed. It is very fast.
Beautiful case and plenty of space, but there was a little chipping of the paint in the cable management space but nothing enough to take off a star.
Preforms, but I am starting to have trouble with noise from its fan. Sounds like a truck.
I really like how fast and streamlined this OS is.

fast and all but I wish it was not bright green
