Intel core i5 2.6 ghz CPU
4 gigs of memory
2 monitors each at 1920x1080
2x1TB HDD in raid 0
I plan on getting:
Intel core i5 3.3ghz 2500k (the unlocked one)
16 gigs of memory at 1600, the kingston one that tomshardware recommended
still have my 2 monitors at 1920x1080
still 2x1TB HDD in raid 0 with PONDERING 128 GB SSD, problem is that i REALLY want 256GB since i think 128GB is barely not enough but 256 WAY too expensive.
Question is, should i throw in a 6950? What kind of performance increase can i expect?
Plus, if you want to go with an SSD, you can go for a smaller capacity and use it for Windows and your drivers only. My reasoning is this information is referenced no matter what you are doing. An 80GB SSD with Win 7 and all my drivers has served me well on my gaming PC (I found the 40GB to be a little too small for this purpose). As a result, you could get an 80GB take the money you would have put toward a 128 or 256GB SSD and get yourself a GTX 570 or 580? And always consider the future SLI option.
