  2. Why get a GTx 580 for a low resolution? 1920x1080 is too low to get a high-end GPU that can do anything at max(Even modern or the next 5 years(or more) of games/3d product) and wont slow the 580 at 1920x1080...

    Get this 570 and replace my 6970 if you dont like Radeon

  3. Thanks for your help guys. I must admit that i didnt really know what a SSD was. I never had one in my previous computers. If i understand correctly its like a small ultra fast HD. Do i have some configuring to do once i boot up my computer for the first time or does it kind of work by itself?

    SSD are extremely fast, faster than you can make a HDD... SSD stand for Solid State Drive and it's availible with the speed up to 500MB/s and a HDD is like 70MB/s

    Install Windows on the SSD and make it your boot drive and your good to go.
