So I'm buying a new PC, here are the specs

AMD a10 5800k 3.9ghz (quad-core)
1600mhz 8gb Kingston RAM (1600mhz because that's the fastest RAM available here in the Philippines)
MSI FM2 A75 Motherboard
Cooler Master 525w PSU
Thermaltake Commander MS1 case
1tb WD caviar blue


The use of the pc (from most important t not so important)
Internet,Gaming,Editing,Watching Videos.

So my question is,
I only have money for 1 part, so which should I buy first: an 80gb intel SSD
or a Radeon HD 7750 to run dual graphics with my APU?
Both of those cost about 80-90$

Thanks.

Get the graphics card first if you want to game. It's a lot more important that the performance gains of an SSD which really only affects the speed at which Windows/programs load.

If you want to save yourself the hassle of reinstalling Windows later, get the SSD now.

The SSD will giver you faster boot and load times.

The Radeon HD 7750 will give you better gaming performance.

Choose whichever is more important to you.

Is there an easy way of transferring windows without formatting the HDD and the SSD? Thanks for the answer

You can clone the drives using a program like CloneZilla (Linux, free) or Acronis True Image (Windows, $49.99).

Thanks for the info, and the program =) All the programs I found needed to format the hard drive before I could copy the OS. Even better since I will be buying the Intel SSDs so the Acronis works perfectly.

Getting the Radeon HD 7750 first since migrating is super easy now :D  Thanks again.
