I needed a PC for school that could handle Auto Cad, Photoshop CS6 and Sketchup Pro. I got a really good deal on most of these parts from a co-worker that never used them so I spent just over $1300 on all of it. I'm looking to upgrade the mother board because I need another USB 2.0 slot. Over all I'm really happy with the speed and power of my PC. I didn't have any issues building the PC except for running my cables and making them appear some what clean and get the cover on the back at the same time. I guess that will come with more practice on future builds. My case has blue trim not the black that the item description says. Trying to color coordinate a build can be tough and make it hard to pick parts.
