I was tired of having to always use my laptop and it started giving me problems so I decided it was time to build my first computer. This is mainly a gaming PC, but being an Engineer I will probably be using it for some AutoCad work as well. I plan to add another 8 GB stick of RAM to help with running AutoCad. So far it has excelled at every thing I have thrown at it. I've been playing Far Cry 4 a lot recently and it doesn't even break a sweat on Ultra settings @ 1080p. I have an old Dell monitor that I'm going to setup as a second screen as soon as I get my DVI to VGA adapter.
It was definitely fun to build this machine. I am already looking forward to upgrading this machine in the future and building my next PC.
