nice setup. little behind imho on the OS. maybe not everyone love Win 10, but I would at least move to Win 8. got things covered on the RAM, might run into some issues with the GPU. not a good gaming system, but should be ok for graphic edits.

I just recently upgraded my system with a new mobo and GPU, got the AMD RX 460 4GB. I can run WoW at Ultra High settings and still get 30-40 FPS and at Medium/High I get 60+FPS

I like Windows 10. You have to turn off telemetry though.

Telemetry is an automated communications process by which measurements and other data are collected at remote or inaccessible points and transmitted to receiving equipment for monitoring.  Wikipedia

Windows snooping, phoning home.

I love Win 10 also, and I use the full out content access option on my laptop, it makes the device extremely smart while I'm out and about.
I'm aware of the risks but I've not experienced anything unorthodox happening at my end, if it's just MS's ability to snoop, have at it  ;D

Otherwise, it's a phenomenal OS and becoming even better for Gamer's in the very near future.

Yeah, there are already 17 games that support DX12 and one to soon be released. I tried it with Rise of the Tomb Raider but it didn't seem to make much difference. I think that may change with newer releases, if it hasn't already.

I loved Windows 7 and was skeptical at first but Windows 10 beats the pants off of it.

It's more and more looking like OSX, not in terms of architecture but in the method that it is administered with specific updates building up the version numbers. Rumor had it at one time that 10 would be the last ever OS from MS, they have achieved the cross platform goal as 10 does indeed integrate seamlessly with other devices but I can't imagine the same OS can possibly stand up to the technology growth of hardware. I suppose we shall see.

Was it a pick-up or did you order that PC? I really hate sending back big items like that through the post.

my laptop and HTPC on 10 reboot themselves after shutdown or randomly, seems to be a fairly common problem reported on forums, only solution is to disable fast boot (which worked for me).

It is but the price is right. ;) I downloaded the Windows 10 .ISO from Microsoft, burned/installed it and activated the key from Kinguin.

i saw on a forum a little while ago where you can still get 10 for free, i didn't get right into it because my machines already have it, something like a clause from MS for students, disabled, etc. can still get it free and legit from MS with no need of proof of your status or disability. if anyone is interested i can try to find the info again.
