Pure gaming. Everything worked well during the build. No compatibility problems to speak of. The huge amount of space is going to allow for any upgrades or new components ill be adding in the future. With the OS on the SSD I can get from POST to desktop in around 35 seconds. My only complaint is that the case came with a plastic tool for adjusting the mother boards mounts/screws which I completely destroyed after one use. A normal socket or wrench does the same trick.
