So basically I am looking to building my first gaming rig around Christmas. I've already selected my parts based on long research. I came to a conclusion but then my neighbor told me about the benefits of SSD. So my question to you guys is this, which of the below builds will be more worth it in the end?
NOTE: I am NOT going to be overclocking. I am on an $850-$1000 budget. If I go with the i5 3470 build, I will be using the SSD for my OS, Games and Applications, while he HDD will be used just for backup and extra reserve.
I would definately go with getting an SSD. If you aren't planning on Overclocking, then having an SSD for your OS and important programs/apps will give an extra boost to your speed
Not to mention SSDs are the future, can't wait until I get one for myself.
