    Physical discs is an archaic method of software distribution. It's obviously going to die regardless of the existence of any form of DRM.

    If you don't like DRM, shop at GOG instead of Steam. Or...

    For ~200 you should be able to get an R9 380. The R7 370 is a waste of money, particularly the 4GB version.

    The R9 380 is slightly better than the GTX 960, but does draw some more power. And...

    It has an Aerocool power supply, which is really bad news. Also, what the heck are they on about with that PC3-10666. That's another name for DDR3-1333.

    BCLK overclocking more or less died with Sandy Bridge. Unlike Nehalem (eg. your Core i5-750), the PCIe clock is now tied to the BCLK. PCIe has very tight tolerances, so there's very little...

    You're probably not going to get an unlocked Core i5 in that budget, especially not with a decent board for overclocking (required for the unlocked CPU to be worth it). And downgrading the GPU in a...

    Depends how much you want to spend. An R9 390 or GTX 970 would be pretty good. Wouldn't necessarily want to spend a lot on a really high-end card that will ultimately be held back somewhat by the CPU.

    Cheapest Core i5 + mobo you can find, R9 380/285 or GTX 960, 8GB memory, and a decent ~500W power supply. Should just about squeeze into 600€ or maybe slightly more.

    He didn't imply that, he quoted the peak power the PSU is rated to deliver to the components. You can find the number on Be Quiet's site. He didn't even mention efficiency.

    Actually he is absolutely correct. A power supply rated for 550W continuous power delivery can definitely deliver more than 550W for short periods of time, if the rating is at all realistic.

    You can't revert if there's nothing to revert to, so that's pretty simple. Also, you do normally need to do the upgrade first in order to get Win 10 activated. Then you can clean install.

    The upgrade process was smooth on my 2012-vintage Win 7 install.

    It's pretty scummy that they ignore people's opt-out from telemetry.
