MSI P55 Micro ATX mobo (supports just over 2000MHz RAM speed)
4GB of G.SKILL Trident DDR3 dual-channel RAM (2000 MHz)
XFX GeForce 9500 GT 1GB, 128-bit video card.
WD Caviar Black 750 GB HD (7200 RPM, 32MB cache)
Running on Windows 7 64-bit
I know the video card is old, but I don't intend to play games on this computer. It will be used almost exclusively for a combination of programs for school (AutoCAD, MATLAB, Word and Excel) and web browsing.
I'm also interested to know if it would be worth it to drop an extra $110 on a 30GB OCZ SSD, and run windows and my main programs off of it. Would I notice much of a difference past boot times?
All-in-all, what would rate this rig 1-10? With SSD and without it.
Any suggestions on better products at similar prices for any of it?
Buying from newegg, in a month or so, and looking to spend around $1250 total (including case, keyboard/mouse, monitor, and OS)
