rolli59 said: If it is for gaming I would do an Intel build with an I5 which allows for SSD or go with the FX build. The I7 only if editing rendering is part of the plan.
rolli59 said: Go for the I7 then you can always add a SSD later.
rolli59 said: That is what I would do but the OS can be reinstalled later if you get an SSD later.
rolli59 said: No you do not. Install OS on a 100GB partition on the HDD then you can clone that partition to the SSD when you get it, then format the partition and join it the main volume.
