I am thinking of possibly getting some parts in the future, mainly the graphics card, and RAM improvements, and most likely an SSD, what would you recommend for this?
I'm looking for at least a nVidia GeForce 700 series (unless there is a better AMD one?), and 16Gb ram. With a 128Gb minimum SSD (256 Preferred).
Also, can this desktop support two separate graphics cards? If not, I want to get the best I can on a low budget.
I am eagerly looking forward to your input about possible improvements after I pay off the balance at BB. :-)
This is going to be a gaming/recording rig, primarily Minecraft (with a high res texture pack) and some other Steam games in the future.

Any ideas on this? I looked on Newegg, I'd really love the nVidia Titan but don't think that would fit in the case.
Next best thing I can see is this:
I might record some Battlefield 3, not sure but I want as high quality as I can while recording at 60 fps or more.

Sorry about the third bump, almost half a month.
I am looking toward the nVidia GeForce GTX 770. Is this card worth it? Or is there another, cheaper card that runs Battlefield 3 at High or Ultra settings at a steady 60 fps minimum?

So, your post is confusing.
I would have to what, get a new PSU in addition to the graphics card?
If I got a new nvidia graphics card, it won't accept HDMI, only VGA?
Could you be a little more clear? Thanks.

How about this graphics card?
Would it work on my PSU or would I need a new one as well?

The New Egg card would be KILLER!
Please check compatability B-4 you buy.
The nice Lenovo people say it will be OK.
The 280 W. PSU supplies 18 amps@ 12 V.
Check the requirements of the card. From the MFR!
They will recommend at least a 550 W. PSU.
I want 650.
lenovo is OUT of stock for that item. Cost:$150+.I'll take a refurbished unit,easily.
Requested that Lenovo send me one for FREE,because this comp is upgradeable.Yeah.
Disable the MOBO video and route the power to the add on card.
Blow the waranty? You bet.!

My desk is full of Lenovo notes and I cannot see what CRU means,yet.
Customer Intalled Upgrades? Replaced?
See this: Would a new Mustang Shelby owner be happy with a Pinto transmission?
DUDE. They messed up. You may quote me on this.
