No, that just happens to be someone gouging for what appears to be a rare HP part number. Card on Ebay
Any other PCI-E video card not requiring another external power cord (6-pin -- or if you want to use an adapter) should work here. In other words, you have a lot of options and the card itself isn't particularly powerful. Not complaining at the price.

Easy to compare this to an intel Quad Core i7, or is that apples to oranges?
Edit: NM...seems that I should stick with the Quad Core i7.

I couldn't resist. Just the parts in this thing are worth the asking price.

I need to convert Hi8 video from my old tapes to DVD, or at least make digital back-ups. I also want to convert AVCHD files to something more useful. Would this computer be able to do the trick? Right now my AVCHD files playback at about 4 fps, but that is with an archaic Dell.

Good price and the 460W PSU is adequate for mid-level GPU upgrades in the future if need be.

7570's are not available to general public, which is why if you do find them they're probably very high prices (no one really sells them in retail channels so why compete with the little stock out there).
OEM's sometimes ask for companies to provide them with a model number that makes components look more current than they actually are (so that their system with a current gen processor appears to have a current gen graphics card etc..)
**** Also, even high end cards get redbadged.
For example, I recently bought an Nvidia 770, which is really just an Nvidia 680. The new 780 is, as I recall, the last gen's titan.
I think the titan was (up until a month ago at least I haven't checked) the only card based on a truly new chip.

Tempting but what the hell with SL version! Keep in mind that you can't upgrade Windows 8 SL version to others. Pretty much stuck with what you have. You can always buy a new license at higher price though.

I have read that Windows 8 SL is not upgradable. Does that mean that we will not be able to get Windows 8.1? Does anyone know for sure?

The only difference in a SL and a retail license for Windows 8 is that you cannot install additional language packs on SL releases since they are licenses for use in only one country.

For ~$350 without monitor and K&M, it's a maybe.
The Mobo and CPU are pretty cheap to get. The GPU is kinda weak even with the 3gb. The real cost is the OS, which make it a fair deal.
The problem that I don't like about it is the AMD. It's overheat too easily. Even worst when you add a powerful GPU in there. The two light up like a lightbulb. If you are going with an AMD, you really need a great cooling system. No just good, but great. When the heat began to rise, your gaming begin to slow down. Maybe for a regular gamer that isn't a problem, but for a serious gamer, it's a big problem.
I tried different ways to build a better cooling system such as 5 powerful 120mm fans, liquid cooling, and even cast the CPU cooler directly into case metal frame. The next one that I want to try is take a small fridge and convert into a "case" for the computer. Moisture and water may be a problem, unless I turn it down to a low level.
Basically, Intel is the better way to go even if it costs double as much. I believe Intel is coming out with new CPU that produce less heat, especially handy for tablets and smartphones.
