SSD or spend money on a better GPU?

Since SSD are expensive I figured I could get a better graphics card than the 670 like a Titan or a 690 with that money I would spend on a SSD. Instead il buy a 1TB Caviar black for 89 dollars.

I don't really care about boot speed. This is a gaming machine strictly. I can always upgrade to a ssd as I don't really mind reinstalling everything. I just rather get a powerful single card now rather than upgrading to sli in the future which I was going to do. Thanks

  1. ^^^ LOL
    He seems to pass on his own decision here :lol:
    Well YOUR WRONG !!!
    SSD makes hell of a difference in gaming unless you don't mind waiting few minutes to load and occasional hiccups :lol:
  2. I am not to sure what your asking or saying but unless your gaming on triple monitors you do not need a Titan or a 690.Also how do you expect to be able to afford one by ditching a ssd there no way you only saving a little over a hundred by not getting ssd a 670 cost $400 a 690 $1,000 you don't gain $600 by not getting a ssd.
  3. I don't like 128gb SSD. If I were to get a SSD it would be 840 Pro 500 GB. that's around the price of 450 dollars
  4. And since I plan to SLI in the near future I rather just get the best one today.

    Or you can use IRST say a cheap 32GB or 60GB use as cache for your TB HDD for a faster SSD like performance and the saving can go towards your Graphics card

    IM NO MAGICIAN
    so im presuming you got a IRST capable Chipset Z68 Z77 H77 to utilize the opportunity.

    As bigcyco1 mentioned you realy don't need a titan
    You will be fine with a GTX 680 or HD7970
    If you want you can SLI later down the road provided you got a quality 750 WATT PSU.

    Thanks
