would like to reuse what I can, but want a SSD for the operating system and the HDDs for just data, am open to anything or ideas in general, dont know where to start, would like Nvidia and Intel chipsets as I know them the best, but have been out of the loop for a bit tech wise...appreciate any help for good compatability, etc..
so an i5 with this new SB that gkay was talking about with a "nice" vid card would work flawlessly? I am looking for something that will last me a good 2+ years playing most games at "high" settings.....figure 4-6 gigs ram and a good moboard will be needed also...guess I dont know how much of a difference in "gaming" performance the i5-i7 chipsets are, but getting the most bang for my buck is what I am looking for...
