This PC build is intended for the tech-savy IT / non-CAD Engineer / Programmer who needs top-performance, longetivity, and the best bang for their buck who is not currently a gamer, but may become one down the road. It's the ultimate trade attempt - performance vs price, quality vs price, feature set vs price, and longevity vs price.
Everything chosen had an average star rating of 4.5 or greater, and parts were chosen based on lots of research and reviews by the majority of the internet community. Special thanks to Eschaton, holsty101 and Vagabond139 and for their help.
Please review and leave me feedback. If users like, I will build and post pictures once finished.
