    Huge thank you to Chaotic Mind. I've installed windows from your link and it is all working perfectly. I really can't thank you enough for the help.

    I might actually get my monies worth with this Steam machine now, and I can upgrade at a later date.

    I've been spending the evening playing Jamestown, which is a game I have been wanting to play for a long time now.

    My pleasure. I aim to help when and where I can. Anyone can use the link for the Windows 10 LTSB image I have further back. I run it on all my machines. I love the fact I get no crapware and other shit people bitch about with this OS.

    Main problem atm are crazy graphics card prices as a result of the crypto mining boom.
    With that budget it would probably make sense to go for say a GTX 1050 Ti 4GB for the time being, since its good for 1080p 60fps at medium / maybe high settings and prices haven't gone up to the extent that they have on the more higher end cards.

    btw radeon cards with 4gb vram or more will be run pretty much whatever you throw at it, unless you are pushing triple 4k monitors or something

    nvidia is top shelf but overkill for the most part

    good for killing benchmarks

    Thankfully, that appears to be nearing its end: http://www.pcgamer.com/steep-decline...-gpus-on-ebay/

    Sweet! Been putting together a rig for 3D printing and 3D development and would love to test drive this version of WIN10.
