hello i am planning on getting this prebuilt build from a computer store here it is:

: Intel i5 3330

Chipset: Intel B7M

Memory: 8GB DDR3 RAM

Internal Hardware:
Storage: 1TB SATA
Optical: DVD Burner
Graphics: AMD 7770 OC 1GB

LED Lights: Blue LED Strip

Case Description:
Case: ATX Tower
Power Supply: Included

Operating System: Windows 7 Home premium

because my current system is very old if you check my specs.
i just have a question about the chipset B7m would that be the b75m chipset or not?
also i was thinkinh of getting them to put a better mobo in it like the ga z77 d3h any help would be great. also the os would have to be 64 bit as it has 8 gb of ram?
and if i wanted to with this build i could upgrade it with more ram or cpu or gpu eventually if i wanted to?
i am thinking of putting in a 60 gb ssd drive into but is it worth it?
also if its important mainly just play the total war series and a casual gamer.

well there's always with or without shipping fee when you wanna purchase motherboard online. its possible but depends on your location, but for sure you have it there from the city near you where is it from?

I can only suggest you Asus or Biostar basing from my experiences and also a friend of mine got the same. they work well and consistent. Biostar focus more of the Audio quality if you are a gamer.
