  1. evrything is compatible, the Video Card GTX 560 Ti 2GB Video Card work fine, just sugestion also for DATA saving just use HDD 3TB is cheap than SSD
  2. I was going to use the SSD's for each of my OS. I could partition but don't really know how to get into that. Do you need to partition an SSD?
