I pretty much use this rig for gaming, video editing, and basic internet browsing. I have had almost no problems with this machine yet. The one problem I have had is that the witcher 3 crashes when graphics settings are maxed out, easy fix. Any other game and it can handle it like a champ. Not the quietest but I use headphones so I cant really hear it when Im sitting right next to it. Easy to build, all parts arrived quickly and all worked.
