Wanted a pretty good entry-level gaming rig without being excessive. It will be a primary workstation, and I am still using my consoles. I am not currently playing AAA level games on my PC, but as I get the money to put in a new graphics card, I will start using it more for that. It has a 24x DVD drive, but was too generic to be listed. My first upgrade will probably be to a higher-powered GTX card in a year or two.
UPDATE: I succumbed to the pressure; I got a bonus at work and got a GTX 980
