So I'm kinda torn between these two builds. I want to be able to record most modern games (with fraps) at high/max settings in 1080p. I'll be playing games like Skyrim, Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, and maybe BF3 (multiplayer) Any help or advice is much appreciated!

Purchase date: Next month some time. So chances are, I won't be able to take advantage of any current rebates, although there will probably be new ones on a couple of these parts by the time next month rolls around.

Budget range: Absolute max of 750 dollars

System use: Gaming, surfing the web, schoolwork

Buying monitor: No

Do I need OS: YES

Preferred website: Wherever I can get them cheapest, so long as it is a respectable site.

Location: US

Parts preference: none

Sli/Crossfire: no

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional comments: none.


Alright now here's my two builds!

Build 1:

I like the AMD build; though I wouldn't suggest a 32gb SSD. It's just too small.
Also, low profile RAM is the new thing. :D

What would you say is a reasonably sized "entry" level ssd?

64gb should be enough if you'll only put the OS and a few select programs/games.
Otherwise, I'd get what TheBigTroll suggested, the OCZ Vertex 4. It's really nice.
