If you're getting a new OS, you might as well go for Windows 8.


Why?

It's user interface is pretty horrendous, but the system underneath it is an improvement over Windows 7. Considering that interface is probably going to be improved with 8.1 (or with 3rd party programs already available), I see no reason not to.

That, and it's "newer", so it's going to have a longer support from Microsoft than older OS.

It's about $30 more than your build but it is really nice:

I just built basically that computer and the performance I'm getting from that price is ridiculous.


That links to a blank list without any parts.


lol wow

Here's what I meant to link:

I've swapped the RAM for:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9-1600MHz-Vengeance-Memory/dp/B004CRSM48/

Because apparently the RAM I listed isn't even sold here.


The A10-6800K supports up to 2133 MHz RAM and if you're using the iGP, the faster your RAM, the better. I wouldn't use the RAM you listed over the one in the OP. In fact, I'd probably suggest even faster RAM than the one in OP, if possible.

This totals to ~470 ($712 according to Google).
(Also planning on putting a graphics card in when possible)
Can anyone improve it whilst not increasing the price?
