That 730 may be a bit unnecessarily considering the integrated card.
Open box 345 btw.

It's not bad, it's got decent passmark multi core and single core and it's a minitower for expansion. It's also pretty low TDP if that's important to you. Obviously you can do a lot better used, but especially at the open box price, it's not a bad computer. If I owned it, I'd put a 500 watt PS and a real video card.

Tried empty box, too suspicious. Got new one in the box. I agree with previous comments a decent card and a W500+ PSU makes a lots of sense. I would add to that list a couple of RAM sticks and a SSD hard drive.

With this having an 8GB SSD, is the OS installed on the C: drive and then all applications/software are installed on the D: drive? If so, how does that work? Do you manually have to select what drive software will be installed on?

Once the 8GB drive is full, will it automatically start installing software on the D: drive? If I want to go with dual monitors, is there a bios setting that will allow me to use both hdmi ports (1 Intel integrated & 1 Nvidia) or do I have to use 1 hdmi port & 1 VGA or DVI port on the video card? Any replies would be appreciated. Thank you!

5400 RPMs? Is it using a notebook hard drive?

The 8GB cache SSD is invisible to the OS. As far as the OS knows, the SSHD is just a 1TB hard drive that sometimes offers SSD-like responsiveness. The hybrid drive manages the 8GB cache on its own, by keeping track of frequently-used blocks of the HDD.
