Yeah it's easy to forget that the hordes of people harassing others on Twitter are not people from every corner of the web; they're the table full of assholes in the cafeteria that act like jackasses that the rest of the grade hates; they just so happen to not be so confined on the internet so they appear to be some sort of "average" or to be spread out, when in reality they're just those same shitty kids from that lunch table. Would you say "my class hates me!" if only that one table harassed you? Probably not. It's not Frank's fault for not viewing it like this, but I wish she had.

@hmoney001: Thanks for that. I remember ending up on a similar Tom's Hardware list when I was doing this hunt a while back, but I ended up getting it built for me. I'll keep it bookmarked.
So I have one last question:
Why do these look different?
Obviously one is directly from the manufacturer, but they're also the same exact price while one seemingly only has 1-less fan. Is that the only difference worth noting (other than the implicit size decrease)? I'm looking at the details, and -- while I have no idea what these things mean -- they seem the same.
@mb: @corruptedevil: @71ranchero: Awesome, thanks guys. I'll probably get the power supply MB linked. Assuming I do, would it be dumb to still get the GTX 750 Ti (I want to be able to upgrade it if I so choose)? I like the price of the 750 Ti and I'm not really planning on playing anything too demanding in the immediate future (seriously, I pretty much only play Dark Souls 1 & 2).
@mb: If I wanted to take a decent step up and get an adequate power supply, what would you recommend? The GTX 750 Ti looks plenty powerful for what I wanna do, but I don't like that you said "may be able to run."
We need to know the Power Supply, it probably should be around 600 watt with 30 amps and a 12v Rail. You find this out by opening the case and reading the side of the Power Supply; which is the thing that the cord going from your wall to the computer is plugged into (just in case you aren't sure).
This helps! I need directions like this. I know nothing. An embarrassing amount of nothing, really.
It's not a prefab computer. Went to a computer shop; told them what I wanted; they made me a cheap computer that did what I wanted. They said it was "totally upgradable" so at this point it sounds like they lied right to my face (they knew I wanted it for game-related things).
Power Supply ID (I think): sl - 8320BTX
BRB trying to find motherboard ID...
@bigboss1911: Yeah it is integrated, his motherboard might not even have a slot for a graphics card.
Those assholes gave me an integrated card? I don't know much, but I know that isn't something you want.
