2) Look for the Antec designer 500. It comes with a nice 500w psu. It is the same as the Antec solo, except it comes in white. I have used the similar Antec P150 before, and the white is really impressive. It is discontinued on newegg, but perhaps you can find it elsewhere: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
yea was thinking bout that wolygon but ill prob just get a black case n let it be
btw guys ive been thinking twice about my mobo
im not sure if asus 790x evo is better than asrock 870 extreme3 only thing attracting me to asrock is that is SATA 6gb/s and usb 3.0 and im not sure whether or not asus is the same
im just curious whether or not SATA 6gb/s and usb 3.0 that big of a deal? i mean i will use this computer for gaming and school research n excel and prob build a new computer in 3-5years? am i going to be future proofing my self with asrock or asus is enough?
Do you see your self running high performance SSDs before you replace the PC? If so it may be beneficial to get SATA 6Gb/s.
Do you frequently deal with large external HDDs, HD camcorders or other external sources of large amounts of data? If not you probably don't really require USB 3.
The ASUS will probably be a better OCer and maybe overall better quality.
^ Good advice.
The cache on a hard drive is not a useful indicator of performance.
All 7200rpm drives will have exactly the same search component of seek. The arm movement component may vary, but essentially, the seek time will be about the same. Larger, denser drives may do a bit better, because more data can be accessed without arm movement.
