Sorry then, I'm new to the forums, i just see people not mentioning it usually, instead just saying "somewhere"

Is it illegal or something?

If you can get your hands on a disc of windows 7 some people I know were offered free upgrades to windows 10. Cost would be nothing.

Look around the internet for a way to load windows 7, then upgrade to windows 10. The legality is questionable; but for $500 you're probably gonna buy a PC from walmart or bestbuy if you gotta buy a copy windows.

Get them to buy all this, put it all together in front of them then be like "CRAP I FORGOT I DONT HAVE WINDOWS!" They will feel bad and go buy it for you at best buy.. HAPPY BIRFDAY!

Not for GTAV, it wont. Probably an APU instead, or an r7 370.

Whoa, thats true. I new Intel was making better graphics, but never thought they would pass the R7 on die. Well, there goes all of AMD's sales for the next few months untill Zen comes out, since most APUs are now not worth it. And he could get a G3258 from microcenter for 50$, and a cheap R7 370 for 110. But that wont fit into the budget.
