Hey everybody, I want to make it quick so I'll just put my idea out there and let you critique it.
CPU: Intel core i7 2600K or i5 2500K ($370 or $270)
MB: Asus P8P67 Deluxe ($310)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz CL8 ($180)
GPU: GTS250 - GTX580 (600$) [will use the GTS250 from old build and buy a GTX580 down the road]
Take a look at the new Intel® Enthusiast Solid-State Drive 510’s. These drives are SATA 3 (6.0Gbits) and come in 120GB and 250GB capacities. Set them up as a boot drive to take the best advantage of performance and cost. When matched up with the 2nd generation Intel Core™ I7 2600k you will have an outstanding system.
1/ Yes, these are Australia's TFU prices.
2/ Im sorry to say to "intelenthusiast" or whatever your name is - but your 'master plan' is totally out of reach and I would not fall for your crappy marketing even if I had the money. I am a young (13 y/o) PC enthusiast with ~1.9K to spend on a PC for video compression/gaming and spending $400-500+ so I BOOT FASTER is just an absolute DOGSH*T idea. If I had ANY additional cash it would go straight to the purchase of a GTX580 - not a SSD that would just be an attempt to give me a massive E-peen.
