I've built over a dozen computers for friends and family over the years. Everything from 40lb steel behemoths with dual graphics cards to tiny pink SG13 but it's been awhile since I built one for myself.
Now with that said I've been using a prebuilt for my personal use for the past five years or so (when the price is right it's hard to no). That was a dual socket E5-2609 Dell T5600 with Quadro 4000.
Anyways, it's past time for an upgrade. The primary use is for a photography side business and the main PC for family use. I'm also looking forward to getting back into some gaming now that my kids are getting old enough I can get some free time every now and then (Master Chief Collection!)
The built went together great. I love this case. Cable management is great and very easy to build. I went from a bunch of boxes to booted in under an half hour. Plus it's very quiet under load. I did end up unplugging the case power LED. I didn't like how it flashed nonstop when the PC was in sleep mode. I'm not sure if that can be changed or adjusted.
I went with the NVMe drive as my primary drive and reused the Seagate and WD drives from my old PC as bulk storage for personal and client images.
I've had a few issues with Mystic Light and the GSkill RAM not syncing all the time but that might be on me. This is my first time messing with RGB.
