I've been out of the pc game a while. Last pc I built was back in 2005... I wanted this to replace a Xbox One, be reasonably priced, and be upgradable. I overclocked the cpu to 4.3 ghz. I'm amazed that I can run most games on high settings at 1080p and still get around 60fps. Later this year I'll upgrade to a 4690k i5 and a GTX 970.
