IF you're planning on staying with Windows 7, you will OK video driver-wise; but, upgrading to Win8 will present video driver problems.
I plan to stay with win 7 unless, there's a reason I just have to change. I just figured the discreet graphics card would give better performance kind of like a stereo receiver vs separate power amp, preamp, and tuner I'm kind of old school that way but, it may be different with computers for all I know. Thanks!
My main concern, is I don't want to get a combo where the processor will be less Quality than I have now.
