Hey guys I have pretty much finalized my build other than a few things and I wanted some suggestions.
Using for: Gaming, internet, schoolwork, 3D art, more
I don't need: a monitor, I will get one on Black Friday, mouse, keyboard, speakers
This is my build so far:
BTW: I do plan on OCing, so I want the one with good airflow, but I also want good expansion for room for X-fire later, and I like the thor V2 has more features, but does it make it worth it?
Also, I picked out a solid state so I could put my operating system on it and to the thing where is uses some of it as cache for non-solid states and they run faster, I will just wait for the price of normal hard drives to go down. Also, will my motherboard be ok with everything I want to do? (OCing, X-fire, t.b.d). Just trying to make sure it will work when ordering.
I would suggest the Thor V2, as its setup to better cool graphics cards. although there is added hassle of putting your system together since the mobo is flipped 90 degrees. Also the SmartDrive technology you are referring to is where you designate a partition of the ssd you own to be used. The minimum from what ive seen is 20 gigs and the max is 64. I would recomend using it if you plan on using a mechanical drive for extra storage of games, but still want to see improved load times and such.
