This is my first build transitioning from the Xbox. It took about two days to put it together and install every last update. When I finally got this thing running I couldn't be any happier. It plays heavily modded Skyrim with nothing less than 60fps on ultra settings, and various other games at 60+fps and high-ultra settings. With the rate at which pc parts are dropping, these relatively cheaper gaming builds are becoming more and more powerful.
Down the line I would recommend picking up a few more fans and or a liquid/fan cpu cooler. The temperatures are fine and don't get above 75* under extreme load, but there's definitely room for improvement on the temperature and noise sides.
I love this machine and absolutely will not be going back to console gaming. Good luck for any new builders! Check out /pcmasterrace and /buildapc!! Fantastic communities who both helped me A LOT.
