Good luck man. I've been using intel/nvidia for a while and I have no complaints.

Lol, I just noticed that there isn't a listed Optical disc drive. Is that intentional. :D

Probably not, but you can just scavenge the Optical drive out of the computer you are using now (Unless you are using a laptop) and use it in the new one. if you don't have an optical drive you can use there are some on amazon for a decent price: http://www.amazon.com/s/...ps%2Ck%3Aoptical%20drive Besides, you are saving $2000+ so just use $20 on an optical drive if you don't have one. ;)

Yeah, it doesn't look like it comes with an HDD either. But that is still a really small price to pay considering the amount you are saving on all the parts this comes with. :P The person who gets this is very lucky for sure.

I'm sure if you use the forum often you know how to build a computer or at least replace parts. It's very easy to add in an optical drive or an HDD as long has you have one, which I'm assuming people do unless they are using a laptop to surf the internet. I have a spare 1.0 TB HDD and a Blue ray and DVD so I'm fine when it comes to those things. :D

lots of new builds dont come with optical drives anymore.. its becoming less and less necessary with the ability for DL. If you are doing a scratch build with no previous PC you would need one to install the OS after than it could be pulled.

True, I just keep an extra one for watching my old blue ray movies every once in a while. I think marco mentioned that the winners OS preference will be pre-installed and will just have to be activated, so really unless want to watch movies... which you can also download, you should be fine.

My PC didn't even have a drive, which honestly kind of sucked 4 years ago. Now, though, I don't really need one since I have an old ps3 to watch movies on.

True, I just use it cause I have a 32 inch 1080p TV as my monitor, so it's awesome watching movies on it. But I obviously don't need it, as I also have a blue-ray player hooked up to my main TV.

Also just wanted to point out this was my 100th post. :D didn't think I did that many, but hey I'll take it.

So many that I may actually be crossing back over into bad luck. Everyday tasks are proving quite difficult.
