Ill have a look at reguAr ol' hard drives. I can just get an SSD in a year or to when prices are sensible
My thoughts exactly. It would be good to hold off, there is a price war going on with them, they already have dropped quite a bit and should keep going.
Also, aside from previous gen video cards, what would you recomend for my build, because in australia, their seems to be no such thing as a cheap, more powerful old card.
GTX 480s I don't know about Australia, but here in the US they're less than half the price they originally were and are still quite powerful even today.
For decent cards that I would consider, 6870 is about as low as I think I would go. GTX 570 are a good option, 560 TI, if you have to an SLI of 2 GTX 460s would even be a good option.. Do you have links of places you're shopping at so I can see whats available?
