Hello everyone, I'm helping a friend build a gaming computer. What do you think so far and do you have any ATX motherboard recommendations? (needs USB 3.0, SATA II, and ability to possibly SLI two 580's later on as well as an open slot for a wireless card [I think he needed that])
Reason 1TB gets so many reviews is price per GB for 500GB model makes in unattractive in comparison. You don't need SATA III (6GB/s) .... transfers from cache will benefit from the SATA III interface but the mehanical drive can't approach 1/2 of SATA III speeds.
Above 580 is clocked slightly faster than the EVGA model
One of the 500 GBs was going to be a backup, also I don't think he needs a SSD or Card Reader. Also, I was going with AMD since it isn't like he will do anything super processor intensive so I didn't see the point of going with Intel
