I think that machine you posted looks pretty sweet.

I don't know much at all about graphics cards, so you're on your own there...

I agree that if it's possible to upgrade that to an SSD for boot and a 1-2TB for storage, that would be ideal. An SSD is the absolute biggest speed boost you can make to a PC right now.

If you're comfortable with it, you could possibly just pop in an SSD yourself, but I have read that Windows 8 has a different - and weird - licensing system, so it may not be as simple as it has been up until now.

I disagree with the poster above about AMD; they make decent graphics cards, but their processors still lag Intel. They are less expensive CPU's for a reason....

Have fun!
The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.
