I was ready to leave my laptop and get a desktop. I use computers for general social media and email, etc., but I also am a heavy gamer. I play Sims, Steam games, Skyrim, MMOs. The graphics card on this computer was highly rated and the 1TB wasn't so bad either.
So far this computer has been exactly what I was looking for. It was simple to set up (I already had a windows 8 account) and the games have run perfectly.
Overall nice computer.
