This build is for my daily use machine, Surf, Download Movies, Music and Software, stream TV , You tube videos, Converting video files to VOB, Ripping CD's , Lot's of Internet use, Word, Excel, Photo shop, Super DVD Creator.
I would like to know if this setup would be better than going with a AM 3 Board setup or an 1155 Board setup.
I have ran this every which way and feel this is the way to go. So please feel free to give your Input.
Parts will be purchased through New Egg , Build budget is 500.00 for all
There are triple core options as well that can some times hit the sweet spot in your wallet .
I would probably stick with 2 x4 gig of RAM . Remember the graphics core shares system memory so the entire 4 gig is not available to the processor
A 300 watt psu is more appropriate . Total system draw is likely to be around 110 watts so save money here .
You have an OS . Make sure its 64 bit
RAID 0 has always been a hard mountain to climb . I doubt you will notice a speed boost from RAIDing two SSD's . How about a single SSD boot drive and a hard drive with much more capacity for data storage ?
