the biggest dif you could make would be to pick up a "cache" ssd.....


really....big mistake not getting one

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and i second the mushkin ram...


That's too small, might as well get a 64 or 128 to boot windows off of.

Evo has a much better heatpipe design. Again, cooler master PSU's suck. Grab this.

Alright im going with that PSU because its 5$ more and corsair is more quality

Is an SSD forr booting windows really worth just a faster boot speed..?

Most Corsairs are good quality. XFX and Seasonic are the only PSU brands that are always good quality.

waaaayyyyyy toooooo big gary1.....

the z68 chipset uses small 30-64gb ssd to "cache" data for a hdd.....

now this is not as fast as an ssd setup...

but it is MUCH faster than a hdd setup...(even a 4 drive raid 0)

here are a cppl articls on z68 ssd cacheing

to answer your question about just boot time z,

an SSD will improve EVERY single aspect of your pc experience---boot times, game load times, sleep times, wake up times, shut down times, program install times, update times.....really i mean everything!!!


oh...btw weather you go with corsair or xfx doesnt really matter.....they're both made by seasonic!!!

the ssd is worth it to the point where id say if you dont think you can swing it.....id cut my gpu down to a 2gb 560Ti just to afford the ssd.....its that important nowadays!!!





the mushkin 60gb is the way id go....crucial would be second......i own both

the 60gb is basically the most that IRST can use as a cache anyway.....that'll handle all your programs and windows.....just make sure you read up on ssd cacheing before you install windows!!!


http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B005INAEMI/ref=d...

cheaper on newegg tho with free shiping

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

just do yourself a favor and dont get an OCZ nomatter how cheap

Sorry, I don't know what I was reading. Yeah, that's enough for caching. For one to boot OS off of, you need a bigger one though.

Get the hyper 212 evo like others have said, and possibly wait for ivy bridge which should be out this month.
