    Those builds above are nice, but do not include OS.
    The GTX 760 is included in this build, and is a very good GPU. Will run most games at High / Ultra very well.

    It's at 950 where it is right now, but if you can add $100 from somewhere, you could possibly upgrade the 760 to a 770.
    (which I would highly recommend.)

    Did not request an OS, however you'll notice there is plenty of room in my linked build to add an OS and still be well under $1k. Also, my linked build is in fact better, and I have no idea why you linked him Windows 8.
