  2. Best answer
    60g ssd are to small for a os and aps. you need to leave some room on a ssd for it to run trim and drive clean up funtions and wear leveling or the ssd will run slow. used the ssd money for a larger stock hard drive. used a newer gaming case that was a little cheaper and use that to put in a larger power supply. with the larger unit you can add a faster gpu latter on without tossing the under sized power supply in your gaming rig.
  3. thanks
  4. i found a random 15000 rpm hard drive... what is its performance compared to an ssd?

  5. for 650 you should be able to get a FX 6300 and a 650ti / 660
  6. APU's are weak, you will feel like you wasted 650 bucks if that is going to be your only solid means of gaming (I,e PC over PS4 dilemma etc)
  7. Personally I would suggest a CPU + GPU over APU's. But that's just me.
