More about good gaming build
  1. 1) you'll definitely need a better cooler.
    2) you have an overclockable processor but your motherboard isnt a good choice to take advantage of it.
    3) you need to have an SSD in a $1500 build. most people go with mixed storage to save money. os on the ssd and games/files on the hdd
    4) whats going on with a case? there's none in your build. do you need one?
    5) why do you need an external hard drive?
    6) for a gaming build, you don't need 32gb of ram. you are better off putting that money into a better motherboard/cooler as i mentioned.

    Nice build sir!
    Couple of notes I would make:

    - You don't need 32GB for a gaming rig. 16GB suffices in nearly every gaming application. The minimum RAM requirement is going up yes, but 16GB for the moment and near future in gaming is more than enough. But that's up to you.
    - There's no case on your build!
    - There's no SSD - for a high budget PC!
    - The 1080 will run on a 500W if you're not planning on going OC mental
    - For overclocking a Cryorig H7 may suit you better as a CPU cooler
  3. Oh thank you i was trying to find a case
  4. Thank You so so much. So what do the ssd Really do :)

    An SSD comes with many advantages.
    - Less power draw
    - Faster boot times
    - Faster software loading times
    - Faster data transfer (up to 30%+ opening files)
    - May marginally improve game performance, may not (usually not though) - although TweakTown suggests otherwise
    - Faster game loading times
    - No moving parts within the component, meaning a longer life if used correctly and less heat generated, and quieter
    - Larger size SSDs tend to be slightly quicker than smaller ones also, due to the number of NAND chips available.

    There are lots of advantages to having an SSD, they have come a long way and gives your whole system a boost. It won't necessarily improve areas like gaming FPS (unless your -rarely- storage is your bottleneck, in which case it will be faster than a HDD), but will improve load and data transfer times as well as draw less power, and generate less heat.

    Most people (myself included) go for a SSD with OS and core programmes & HDD set up for everything else. So don't rush to throwing away all HDD straight away. You don't need an SSD for basic storage. But that's up to you, on whether you think the price hike is worth the data transfer improvement, as HDD is still better value per GB (for obvious reasons).
  6. SSD will make a significant difference in your boot and program load times. everything including opening folders, opening your browser, copying files will be snappy. you can install the large games on the regular hdd because you dont need them to load fast. once your in, your in. the load times only affect the wait before the game starts.
