Instead of Home Premium, go for Win7 Pro, otherwise you can't upgrade to 24 GB.
Yeah, the forums have been extremely sluggish lately.

I don't know about computers (I've only bought a Canon Vixia w/accessories) but I will say that BH has very good service and support... I've not needed product support, but they were quick to answer pre-sale questions and gave me good information without trying to "upsell" to more $$ equipment

Come on, dont you feel in star wars? =)
I think you would be better served with building your own or buying a complete system from ADK even though either option would likely cost more. Here's why:
- motherboard quality is important; I'm not sure what comes with the B&H system referenced, but I doubt that it is an Asus or Gigabyte (choice of most fast systems per PPDM5 benchmark site that have a single CPU)
- if you want to start with 12GB, suggest you buy 3x4GB RAM sticks for RAM certified to allow 6x4GB so that if you choose to grow to 24GB you can do so without needing to scrap all of your existing RAM
- this "gaming" system can play Blu-rays but cannot record them
