    Can you buy windows 7 and get a free upgrade to windows 10?

    Been trying to wrap my head around this for a minute. Building my first PC and I want windows 10 but it costs almost 100, could it be possible to get windows 7 priced at 60 and get the free upgrade to windows 10?

    I have a GTX 970 and would like to know the BEST monitor i can get for under £400 I've considered free-sync, G-sync, 24", 27", 1440p, 1080p. Would I lose quality on a 27" at 1080p? What is my best option? I mostly play CS:GO.. but also frequently play Total War: Attila, fallout & racing.

    Best 'non-gaming' headphones for gaming [for under 100$]

    I'm not sure the title is clear enough, but the thing is that, overall, the named 'gaming headsets' are usually a complete ripoff. They don't sound that good and the usual 100-200$ price point is, again, a ripoff. A lot of people have switched these gaming headseats for "usual headphones" made...

    r9 290 powercolor vs gtx970 MSI

    Simple as that. Due to famous "wrong marketing" from Nvidia I have this option. I would like to keep my gtx970 but I want other opinions for 1080p gaming. I would have extra 60$ for 4gb ram to add in my PC. No other options, either stay with 970 or switch to that particular gpu ?
