Built this for gaming and programming work. Also do some light video editing on it as well.
Specifically: I built this to run BF3 on Ultra at 60fps. I Originally started off with a Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC, which was a powerful card, but did not perform up to par. After getting two GeForce GTX 670's with a bonus check from work, it performs exactly like I want even when recording my gameplay.
Also have a second monitor (pictured) which is an Acer H233H, which its no longer made.
**When I first started this build back in Spring last year it was a $1000 budget build. I've just been adding on to it.
