    Do you want fast boot times, short boot times? If so get an SSD, otherwise a normal hard drive will be fine.

    I like it quite a bit of punch in a budget
  3. Says its 870$ for the price.
  4. Prior to discounts yes however either way it'll amount to that total yes.
  5. Wouldn't it be better to switch it with AMD? Or is intel ebtter for the set up.
  6. Wouldn't it be better to switch it with AMD? Or is intel better for the set up.
  7. I would buy the best with what you can afford if you can afford to get a slightly less powerful CPU but put more into a stronger GPU then it would be more worth it go with AMD perhaps if you can manage to do both go intel

  9. Yeah if you can get a more powerful graphics card with an AMD processors, then thats good, but i wouldn't recommend going higher than a 7950/GTX760 with an FX6300 (or any AMD processor out there right now).
