I built this system for primarily video editing and gaming. So far I'm very pleased with the results. My favorite addition is the Corsair H100 Water Cooler in a push/pull configuration. My least favorite component is the Caviar Black 2TB hard-drive due to how loud it is. My future plans include a SSD (Samsung 840?) and a 3TB Barracuda for storage. Oh, and the Thermaltake Level 10 GT is an AMAZING case for those of you who might be on the fence about buying it. There is nothing this case can't do or fit.
