I would like an upgradeable desktop that I can assemble, I'll just say I don't have any peripherals to make sure everything is included. The only peripherals I might have are cords anyways. I plan on building a computer with money I make from a summer job when school starts again in the fall. My budget is 1500 but I am saving 200 for games. Thnx in advance! just ask if I haven't added enough information, I feel like I am forgetting something.

thnx for your answer, and yeah I though Win 8 would be cool, but heard that it limits where you can get games to the windows store, so win 7 is good

the difference between windows 7 and 8 is mostly a preference based thing. if you are really used to and like the classic style of windows, keep 7. if you want to try something new or already have used 8 and like it, then get 8. the performance gap between 7 and 8 is very tiny. like, 8 will play a couple more fps. also, if you want to play older games, then get 7. and there has been talk about the next version of directx, whether it will be windows 8 exclusively or there may be a windows 7 patch for it.
