  1. not bad but you really need 8gb of ram now for gaming. 4gb will choke you and slow games down as your page file will be going like crazy.

    Keep in mind that 250GB of storage is NOTHING. A few games and its full.

    Does it really matter?
  6. For 1080p gaming is nice.
    U may pick a bigger HDD for example http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/seagate-internal-hard-drive-st1000dm003
    and 2x4GB 1600Mhz RAM from G.Skill Ripjaws X Series.

    Have fun!

  7. You will not get the performances of normal hdd, it is not designed for home use. They are designed for media center, media server, surveillance, digital signage and other stuff
