Avid gamer. Finally got around to building my first gaming PC. I've owned and upgraded name brand computers over the years ( I know, they suck), but finally I got some money together and put together a decent gaming build so I can enjoy today's games in 1080p with great framerates. Been playing PC games since the days that Counter-Strike was a mod for Half-Life. Grew up on Counter-Strike, and Day of Defeat and spent countless hours after school on those games.

I'm finding that building a PC is as much fun as playing games on one. Looking forward to what the future brings and building another one in the future, though I hope this current build lasts me a long time.
