After a long time of well not doing much but buying prebuilts I finally built my own again. Felt like a completely new experience. This one exceeded my expectations and performs very well. While not the best computer I is the best I have ever owned. I have replaced the monitor with a 27" ASUS. Edit: I have also removed most of the Green LED fans and replaced them with Noctua's for a much better reduction in eye glare. So much quieter as well.
