Yes that's Windows, 32 GiB . Can you run Windows on 16 GiB :hysterical:



Storage: Crucial MX100 256GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

A SSD is a great idea you will not regret it.



Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1

I guess you are installing it yourself?

That build is just wonderful, but what about money?


Drop the 29% off from it at each level and it will be just match, a coin. For example, on Core i5 instead of Core i7. xx30 instead of xx50 graphics. a more low-horse DDR2-1200 memory - Superb as of my opinion! :)
...and a power supply will drop in need of Watts - less cost, more cash on your pretty desired OS. Luck!
