Newegg has better service and faster shipping in my opinion. Compare prices though. Don't forget amazon as well! They can have good prices.

I'm not a big fan of tiger direct. I swear by newegg.

Depends on how much you are thinking of paying. It's not great for gaming but it will play anything (albeit on medium or low settings for advanced games). Best to put your money into gpu. You can get a $50 intel dual ivy, and then put everything you can into a graphics card.

May I ask, why not upgrade or just build your own? It is very easy if you use youtube videos as a guide.

well the A10 is a killer value as long as you dont mind medium settings graphics for new games, so you will be happy i think.  come play some ins when you get it. =)

heres some gaming benchmarks so you know what to expect: (yours is the green bar, being compared against other integrated graphics, a gaming quality graphics card would be 1080 res and higher quality and higher frame rates, but for the money, your a10 has damn good performance, and you should be able to play any game)
http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/cpu/47257-amd-a10-5700/?page=7

i would just stick with it and not get a graphics card, if you add a graphics card you lose all value of the a10 and thats the whole point of choosing an "apu" over a cpu + graphics card. (you realize that that system does not include a graphics card right? just the integrated graphics on the cpu.. but they are pretty darn good for integrated graphics!) 

As long as you didn't pay (much) over $800 for the complete system then its a relatively good buy.  sucks that you are stuck with windows 8 though. but who knows maybe youl like it? =)

wife jsut got laptop with windows 8 and i hate it so i will hate it on my pc yeah I got the system for under 800 and it has a graphics pci slot that is why i researched and found the highest quality video card that will run dual with the on board graphics but what your telling me is that would slow it down. Radeon HD 6670 little more research and i see i could get some stuttering by using both. and the benchmark scores are not that much higher. but in the future i could swap power supply and put in a bigger video card a 6670 just would not require me to add bigger power supply to the machine.     Bottom line running 280gb hard drive and 256k graphics card right now LOL so everything is way better. Now for the bad news you think i had trouble setting up the server before okay okay that Zen set up guess what bud windows 8 have fun HAHAHAHAHAHa.

Swap the CPU if you're going to get a dedicated graphics card. As that will defeat the purpose of having an APU.
