This is a stupid question- I know. But what is the Boot Drive exactly?

The drive that your OS is on.

For the price, not so good. It has slower RAM, no SSD, and a lower grade GPU. They also don't specify the OEM of the PSU being used, which is only 600w. That would keep me spooked wondering if the PSU will die or not. IMO, I think you should get a 3570k or 2500k based rig with a 560ti or 570 paired with 8GB of RAM and an SSD. Always Corsair for PSU.

I figure you are likely to use a lot of RAM, so look for a computer with Windows 7 Professional or higher on it. Windows 7 Home Premium cannot utilize more than 16GB.

Wow, you see, without this forum I would be so lost and you just saved me from so much wasted time as well. Thank you.
