CPU: It was a great deal. An i7 for only $250. Picked it up via MicroCenter. CPU usage never exceeds 35%. Getting great performance.
Motherboard: No need to get a Z87/Z97. The only regret I have with the board is that I didn't get a H87 or H97. Great expansion potential for the price.
Memory: Great memory. Cheapest one I could get.
Hard Drive: Nothing too special, great value at $45. Will consider getting another 1tb drive and an SSD in the near future.
Graphics card: Very beastly, can play any game at 1680x1050 with Vsync and Anti Aliasing on to the highest settings and still get at least 45fps. It does get really noisy, so that's a drawback of the card. Not planning to CF the cards.
Case: Has USB 3. That's the only pro about the case.
Power supply: 80+ gold efficiency and 650 watts, not a bad deal at all. Will support my card under full load just fine.
Optical Drive: Meh, who cares? It was cheap and that's that.
Operating System: Went with Windows 8 because of more future support. Decided to get 8 because I heard that Microsoft will be phasing out mainstream support of Windows 7 soon.
Cable management is horrid, but you don't know bad until you see my old Compaq.
