Actually not really, because it's not liquid cooling or Noctua, but it'll get far I'm sure. I'm hoping to use this for some moderate gaming and schoolwork. Do you guys think the build is rounded properly? I'm shocked I got away with a R9 270 for sub $150...

Also, do optical drives require SATA III? I know they need SATA power, but I only have two SATA III cables with the motherboard and... yeah.
