I am not a gamer, but my hobbies are Aerial photography, aerial video,
and as such I have to put in music and sound tracks in my finished products. My photo's are 14.1 mega pixels, my videos are 1980x1020 @ 30fps.
The speed of the computer and great graphics card allow easy editing and rendering of my work. I am completely satisfied.

Hi bacon626262,

Technically the motherboard installed will support up to an AMD FX-8320 processor, however our engineers have experienced issues occurring with that CPU installed. We recommend sticking with an AMD FX-6000 series and below.
