Slight specs correction, it has an Nvidia GTX860M, not a GTX960. (I found that out after I dropped down to the desktop and ran the command to show graphics information) I guess the ones on the website with the GTX960 are newer models.  Still, an 860M is nothing bad.  It runs Borderlands 2, or at least it did for a few minutes when I tried it out last night.

What are you running for a monitor ?

I've got it hooked up to my TV, a Sharp Aquos 32-inch 720p HDTV.  It's the same TV I use for all my consoles.   8)

Cool ! 

I've been running Kodi, via my Dell laptop, on a 55" HDTV.  Looks surprisingly good.

That said, I wouldn't want to watch a 55" monitor, 3-feet away from me.

I assume you put some distance between the monitor and yourself, yes ?!?!?  Or, is it small enough to place in front of you, on a desk ?

It's on my TV stand.  I sit a ways back from it.  The controller is wireless, so no major "I need to be this close" issues.  I was using a wired controller for some games, but that has a nice long cord.
