I got tired of console gaming and all of the restrictions, not being able to participate in early access stuff, game mods, and missing the AMAZING pc deals. I didn't realize how much of a difference there really is. I play on PC much more than console now but still play console for some exclusives.
I previously had an AMD A10-5700 and expected terrible quality but was amazed with how much it could really output, it changed my whole view on AMD as a processor company. I will continually use AMD in desktops.
When building this I had a few hiccups, Asus board ethernet died and had to be replaced within a week of purchase. Didn't realize I needed a PSU with two 4+4 for OC'ing the 9590 so I traded up for little difference in price from a Corsair PSU. Upon installing the new board windows would not boot, attempted a reinstall to no avail so I proceeded to try things one by one until I figured out one RAM stick I had was incompatible causing the crashes.
Now the I knows;
I know a lot of people don't like AMD, if you can't keep an open mind don't comment.
Yes I know I need liquid cooling for OC on the 9590, it will come sometime in the near future.
Yes I've figured out ASUS' customer support for RMA is terrible.
Yes I know I don't need two separate standard HDD's
Yes I know 1300W is overkill.
If you have constructive comments or suggestions please comment I would love to hear them

Amazing CPU, uses maybe 50% on Ultra on GTA V with browser windows open on alternate monitors and running monitoring software. If you wanna overclock this CPU you WILL need a liquid cpu cooler AND a board that support CPU 8pin +4 such as the Crosshair Formula Z.
The board itself is amazing, Easy overclocking, good clearance for bigger cards and support for an additional +4 CPU power and additional 12v molex for triple SLI.
WORST customer support, upon my first board dying I was told I had to pay full price for a replacement board until I sent back the old board, $239.99 is too much to randomly pay if my board dies to no fault of mine. If you are any sort of tight budget don't buy this board because if it dies you will be SOL, if you have a microcenter near you I firmly recommend you buy it there and get the 2 year protection it'll will save your life.
