I don't understand why they would use an i7-4770S instead of a regular i7-4770, but for $900 you'd be hard pressed to build a better computer, seems like a good deal to me.

I got this very same rig from Best Buy the other day. I added a 240gig SSD and replaced the 4 gig stick of ram with an 8 to go dual channel. I can run damn near everything I've tried on max settings. Almost no load time on anything. Fix it up a bit and it rocks.

Yeah that's where I found it when I called. He said it has 16GB RAM, but the Feature list I think said 12. Either way wouldn't that be more than 4GB sticks? Or is that another part?

It's the best chance I have and I wanted to max everything. So far you guys and other people said its good, which makes me think this is the one.

If it has 12 GB, it probably has 8 GB + 4 GB.

My Best Buy has a couple models. All with 12 gigs of ram but one with a 1 gig GTX 750. I opted for the 3 gig 760. It's all on a microATX board with 2 ram slots so if it's got 16 then it's 8+8 but if it's 12 like mine was it's 8+4.

If the 2 GB GTX 760 is an option, it would be better than the 3 GB variant. The latter is actually a tradeoff despite the additional VRAM because it runs slower.
