First build in over 15 years. This machine was replacing a laptop that was serving media to our main living room TV.
The case is fun with those glowing blue fans on the top and the thing will probably never overheat with all that air flow. The mobo and video card are a little small to warrant a case of this size, as the case was bigger than expected. I could have gone with one of those mico super tiny things, but I didn't want to struggle with tight spaces.
Windows 8 on the 240gb SSD only takes 10gb or so, so there is plenty of space left over for my favorite apps. I added a 1tb hard drive for steam games that don't require a lot of gpu power, like Kingdom. Civ V, Hearthstone, etc.
Plays 1080p very nice, snappy boot and shutdown, quiet and glowly when I pop the top. Fun times.
