So I recently built my first computer and decided to leave console gaming behind and fell in love with pc gaming and I love steam but I have so many movies and pictures and steam games that I have about (460 gb used out of my 500gb hard drive and everything had been acting slower the last few days I ordered a 1tb internal HD that I want to move all my games and movies on to so I can leave nothing but the OS on my other barddrive is that a good idea, will that make my computer no as slow anymore?
I have amd fx 4300 that I want to upgrade
550wpsi
Gfource zotact 630 that I want to upgrade to a evga 750ti? Good choice
Windows 7
8gb corsair vengeance ram

So based on what I said should I used the new HD for my games and movies only and what are some core hard ware that I should upgrade
Thank you for help

Its good to separate your OS/Programs/Games on one drive and your movies, pictures, music, documents on another.

Depending on what you want sped up, you will want different hardware. If you want games sped up, upgrade your GPU. Your AMD FX4300 is pretty terrible, so you could get a new board and CPU and speed everything up quiet a bit. Same with an SSD, if you bought a new Samsung EVO for your OS drive, things would speed up a lot.

What are you talking about. The FX4300 isn't the best gaming CPU by a long shot, but most certainly isn't terrible. Given that your very own CPU is in the same tier as the FX4300 in Tom's own gaming CPU hierarchy, I would do more research first before posting unhelpful remarks, that could end up with the OP spending much more than he needs to, to get some noticeable performance leaps. SSD is a good way to go for your OS, and have everything else on another drive. It will make the system much faster. You have a decent CPU with plenty of ram, and a 750ti would be a good balanced match with your system. A decent OC on your CPU if possible would be good too.

Your CPU is fine, its your video card that is holding you back. The 630 is not a gaming card. Upgrade that and youll notice a huge difference, the 750 Ti would be a good upgrade.
