Total $967 ... you could get by w/ a much lower cost GFX card but since budget allowed, I threw it in there in acse "all that good stuff" included video editing or maybe ya wanted to have some fun.

If ya not interested in having fun playing games, I'd substitute an SSD and drop to a cheapo GFX card.
