Hi bacon626262,

Technically the motherboard installed will support up to an AMD FX-8320 processor, however our engineers have experienced issues occurring with that CPU installed. We recommend sticking with an AMD FX-6000 series and below.

If you have other questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 888-462-3899, ext; 5153.

Hi Notladz,

This PC will likely run sonic shaders mod on a lower resolution for recording. Howver, for optimal recording resolution, our engineers recommend at least an NVIDIA GTX650Ti 1GB Graphics card or higher. Unfortunately sonic shaders mod requires a stronger graphics card to support higher resolutions.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 888-462-3899, ext: 5153.

The 25 digit Windows product key is located on the right side panel of your desktop. Included in your box is a quick start guide that will give you the directions on authenticating your Microsoft Windows.
