(All the components are running on stock settings and stock cooling is present throughout the entire system.)
Should I invest in an ssd now? If so which one would be reliable and economical?
Would the stock cooling be sufficient for ample overclocking, or would I need to invest in aftermarket cooling?
I do live in a high dust environment with the computer situated several inches above medium carpet though cleaning out the computer monthly seems to be doing fairly well.
I use the computer primarily for Skyrim(heavily modded), Bf3, and minecraft(sometimes as server while playing Bf3 or Skyrim).
Please tell me if this post is off-topic for this category?
Thank you, both of you. Those two drives both look like very good ones and the 830 seems to be priced fairly well too, but is the 840 Pro worth the jump in performance for the jump in price or will the end difference be minimal?
I'm definitely agree with everyone saying SSD. I don't think I'll ever build a personal PC without an SSD now that I've experienced owning one. Troubleshooting an issue that requires multiple reboots is infinitely less frustrating, let alone all of the other benefits.
