Although you could get Windows 8... or a better graphics card- the 7870. But that's all there is. johnsonjohnson January 20, 2013 8:38:42 PM Hi. Save £13 with DDR3-1600 RAM and spend that on a GTX 660 instead or a little bit more for a different GTX 660 or HD 7870. The small price difference is worth the upgrade especially compared to the rest of your build. http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/part/corsair-memory-cml8gx3m... http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/part/evga-video-card-02gp426...
