finally think ive got the best bang for your buck! not expecting the best graphics ever, but think i will be satisfied coming from a laptop!

any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated! thanks in advance.

excludes software... ive heard windows 8 runs games better than 7, can anyone justify that for me?? i want 7, but if 8 is better, i will buy 8!

Hmm I'd say pick up another case fan because your one only comes with 1. Other than that I personally see no problems
