Originally built in 2011 for a littler over $1k tomorrow the 23rd will be 6 years to the date. I never had a single issue with this build. Plays everything I throw at it 60+fps with max settings minus ubersampling in The Witcher 2 and 3. I will be passing it down to my son after I recently updated it for a little over $350.
I will be listing a second build in the coming weeks which will soon be my new PC. Theme colors are Orange/Black with a splash of blue on a Haswell i5 4690k & Gigabyte z87x-oc board. I was proud of my i5 2500k machine I never had any regrets and my new build is already full of regret. I went off a spare Cougar 700w PSU which is burnt orange. I have no idea what I was thinking.
