This is my first computer build. I decided to go all out for it and mostly buy mid-higher end hardware. However, I did decide to stay with the i5 CPU because it was a much better sale price than the i7 was. I originally had an ASUS GTX 970, but I went ahead and switched it out for the 980 instead. Nothing but gaming and occasional web browsing on this rig. I do dabble in editing gameplay, but I transfer the raw data over to my Macbook ProR for that.
