    That sounds about right. I'd probably change the HDD for a WD Black instead of a Blue, they're cheap right now, and the performance gain is worth it.
  4. Are you overclocking?
  5. the stats and specs are the same so minimal prfrmance difference

    I have both. There IS a difference. Black is louder, but faster.

    That looks quite good, but I know I didn't include it but would it run bf4 on low smooth?
