Cvalentineo, that looks to be a solid machine that should serve you well, and the price/performance ratio is good in my opinion.

Very odd. Have you tried a different receiver? Maybe borrow one from a friend to eliminate that variable. Some receivers can be very finicky with PC inputs.

I don't know what display you are using, but if you plan on 3D gaming with a 750ti / 2GB it will likely chug pretty hard.
