Is your computer working properly now?  Does your RAM show up as the total 16GB in the BIOS?  If so,  I wouldn't bother returning it just yet,  wait a few weeks to see if any other problems show up.

#2, simply because a GTX 960 will run circles around a GTX 745 and the i7 6700 is competitive enough. Don't even consider the GTX 730 as a 'gaming' card. Not only is it two generations old by now, but it's also the base, budget, low performance version of that two generations old architecture.


"But the GTX 745 has 4gb frame buffer, the 60 only 2!"


The 960 is still gonna be way faster.


To compare, I have an i5 4590 with 8gb RAM and a 2gb GTX 960 and run ~60 FPS stable at absolute maximum settings at 1600x1200. #2 PC should perform about the same, if not better - seeing as how the i7 6700 is slightly better than my i5 4590.


You would get the same performance level with I3-6100 with the GTX 960 2GB.  The I7-6700 will allow for expand-ability provided the PSU is strong enough.

o.k. guys.  I got #2.  But here is the problem.


Fresh out of the box.  Error beeps.  Called tech service people who sold me the computer.  They said it was an internal problem said I can return it to the store.  Went on line turn out that ram card issue.  Open the box and took out the first card and put it back in place and saw that the last card was not snapped in place.  Snapped it in place and it worked. 


My question is should I return it to the store and get an new one at this point.  The store will not give me any problems.  They have a generous return policy.  I have 90 days.  I guess the question is... Is this machine more likely to have problems because of its bad first start.  


If it is working properly now and all of the RAM shows up, you're golden.  Even the best builder can miss getting a card seated, and it doesn't hurt anything.


Also, generally speaking, if a computer part is going to fail, it'll usually fail pretty quickly, like first 1-2 weeks.  Even the best quality parts can occasionally get one that has a weak solder joint or bad capacitor.  If it lasts a month, it'll probably run for years without a lick of trouble.
