Additional Comments: My biggest concern here is expandability. I want a machine that I can grow with. This is my first PC (I'm an Apple guy), and I want something I can tinker with and expand later on down the road. Looking at the AMD A6 or A8 APU. The ASUS F1A75-V Pro looks good and has the expandability I want, but something tells me it is overkill and my noobishness dones't know if I should hold back.
