I'm back but its a good problem to have. Tags: New Build Systems Last response: December 1, 2010 9:45 PM in Systems Share carver_inc November 30, 2010 1:19:58 PM I asked for some input on a build few weeks ago, but the holiday sales have breathed new life into my budget. So far I've got: Coolermaster Case + HDD= $60 Core i5 760= Free 4gb G.SKill Ripjaw=$50 Corsair 550w=$55 So right now I've got $165 into my build. I was going to use the extra budget for a nice gaming mouse/keyboard, however I think I'll getter value by either A) Upgrading to high level video card (which one?) B) Buying a SSD (maybe a 60gb) So which one would you go for? FYI, my original choice for gpu was an OC 6850 for a 1920 x 1080 gaming res. Thanks guys! More about : back good problem Alvin Smith November 30, 2010 2:26:47 PM I would suggest a 90GB SSD (Vertex2 or any with SanDisk cntrlr) ... Win7 is much more piggy than XP and you will need some extra free space (for management). I just got a CoolerMaster STORM gaming mouse (and I don't even game) ... VERY nice ... scads better than any mse I have ever owned (since the late 1980's). Alvin Smith December 1, 2010 9:45:30 PM If you should decide to go for a 460 then DO pay the few extra dollars for the 1GB version !!! It is a MUCH better card (compare all the detailed specs) ... just a few more dollars. AND ... I'm going to stick to my guns and opine that 64GB is just a little too tight, for a boot/utils/apps drive. ... Go for 80~90 gigabytes, even if you have to opt for a slower SSD. (given the same clock rates, anyway) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
