Hybrid HDD questions, and PSU requirments for Graphics cards

so here my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/the_amazing_gimp/saved/3KCE


I have two 480GTX on the way.

My question isn't so much about components, they should be OK...My question is with the hybrid HDD, how often can you defrag, if you can?

also, will a 750watt be enough for both cards or should I upgrade to 850 for better future proofing?

this build is mainly for graphic design school and gaming on the side(Neverwinter, KOTOR, LoL, and guildWars2)

  1. Your PSU can bottleneck your system
  2. how so?
  3. Two GTX 480 will eat 700+ watts with 850 watt PSU you'll be on safe side
    If exactly 730~740watts thats why

    Yes you can defrag hybrid HDD's also, you can even defrag SSD's but it won't help in terms of speed

    I have two Hybrid HDDs in my laptop. The SSD cache is completely hardware driven, and is transparent to the system. It's controlled by the hard disk controller and caches the most frequently accessed sectors automatically. When you defragment one of the volumes, any cached sectors that are moved around may be invalidated and will automatically be updated in the cache next time they are accessed.

    As the original poster you should be able to change the best answer if you wish, but that's your prerogative.
