My computer was loaded with Windows 8 64-bit. I had to confirm with Best Buy salesman to make sure since it was not listed in literature or on box.

It comes with an Nvidia Geforce 620 or 625 card. It also has integrated graphics by nature of the CPU (see http://ark.intel.com/products/75122/ ), but that is bypassed because of the add-in Nvidia card.

Is there free memory slots or does the 16GB use all 4?

I'm wondering if I wanted to go 32GB if I needed 16GB more or start from scratch.

Mine has 2 open slots. 2 slots filled, each with 8GB sticks. So you could just add 2 more 8GB sticks to get 32.

Most likely it is only using two slots cause it's cheaper to buy it in alrger sticks instead of smaller sticks in 4x4 instead 8x2 or whatever

The only way to find that out is if you can visit a local store and see a demo for yourself as specifications are subject to change without further notice.

There is no parallel port if that is what your printer uses. Most modern printers use USB connection, and this PC has lots of them.

answer 2
The system comes with a basic 350w power supply. I upgraded mine to a 750w to upgrade the video card as well. I would recommend getting a power supply with modular power cables so you only add the cables you need to avoid having a mass of unneeded wires cluttering up the space inside and reducing air flow.

You can put in a GTX 780 type card, but you will need a bigger PSU. Mine came with a 350W PSU; I bought a 750W PSU to support the GTX 770 I got to put in it. The 770 work great in this system!

Unfortunately,

Most likely not. This if for a few reasons

-case dimensions are horrid for larger graphic cards I somehow can't see it fitting first off.
-the power supply with only a 625 in it pretty much says it all. You will have a very low wattage psu in this computer
