This machine is mostly for development in UE4 (that's why I added copious amounts of ram and a hexacore processor). This baby works beautifully, the only issues I ran into were that I had bad luck with the 1080 and got one would have strange graphical glitches and that gave out after two weeks. Since then I have had it replaced through EVGA's RMA process and this one works perfectly. It also works great as a gaming machine but if you're only going to use it for gaming, lower the amount of ram significantly and go for a 6700k (will need to change motherboard) or something else which may have less cores but has a 4GHz clock. The monitor and SSD are the only two that I transferred from my old build because the rig itself was 8 years old. Overall a great computer and lightning fast with just about everything it does.
