It needs an OS, if you need windows 8.1 or want it pm me for details
You could change out the 780 for an r9 290 and save ~$100 for just about the same performance (depends on the game) Both come with different sets of games.Sapphire 290 with bf4
You could then get the i7 4770k for $50 more (or not)
