    Damn, that's a good deal but yeah tax is a deal breaker depending on where you are. I got mine at Microcenter for $2750 + 3% UEZ tax in NJ. The only difference is the Amazon one comes with a 2TB HDD instead of a 1TB. If I bought from Amazon, I'd have to pay for AZ taxes at 9% so it's a wash.

    Right, but I prefer not to go through the hassle. They are also known to occasionally sell items people have returned. I'm still thinking about it though.

    To look on the brightside, at least dual channel is better than single channel in pretty much every game. Sucks, though, the upgrade path to 32GB is a whole lot more expensive now.

    I went with a few upgrades:
    - Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut on CPU + GPU, and Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads
    - M.2 PCIe Slot 1 upgraded to Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 500GB M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 3D-VNAN
    - 2.5" HDD/SSD Bay upgraded to 2TB Seagate FireCuda Gaming 7mm SSHD
    - Wireless Cards upgraded to Intel Wireless-AC 9560 802.11
    - Operating System upgraded to Windows 10 Pro 64bit with a clean install

    Note that I chose not to spring for the dual channel RAM as the articles I read online indicate that the performance gain is only 15-20% over and since I don't play too many FPS I figured I didn't need it.

    Looks like you should be good to go! Hope you enjoy it :)

    You may want to look into undervolting and following AWholeHam's bios guide for the 8750h if your temps are high. Helps quite a bit.

    So ive been looking at the silent option program from msi.....is there a center one i have to download? They have a list for all the models and i do not see our Ge75s on the list. Really would like to get rid of the dragon center and use this.
