Hey, I'm Dylan and i have recently been looking into building my own computer but i have no experience in it and it would just be great if i could get some positive feedback from others. I have all my parts picked out but what seems to be my biggest problem is picking out a good SSD because i want to run all of my OS programs on that while having my 1tb drive for gaming, music, documents, etc. I really need to know if a 24gb slc SSD would be enough to run all the main programs for windows 7.
In addition, if you guys could look over my parts just to make sure that im not buying things that are not compatable even though i am 90% sure they are it would mean a lot to me if you could.
-Note i was told that SSD SLC run faster then the MLC but others are telling me the bigger the SSD the faster it is. Professional guidance would be really helpful with choosing the right SSD. (It wasn't stated but i want to run my OS and Anti-Virus on my SSD because thats how i was told to ensure PC performance)
I do not want to end up buying the wrong items and or not having all the parts needed. Feedback would be much appreciated. Approximately how many SATA cords do i need and is that all i need including with my CDRom. And if there are any other essentials i would really love to know as i said before this is my first time constructing my own Computer.
Whatever you do do not get that CPU. Bulldozer CPUs are NOT good and have been replaced by piledriver.
With a Highend GPU you either want an AM3+ board and FX83xx or a z77 board and i5.
The GTX 680 is a bad choice as the 7970 beats it, is cheaper, and comes with 3 free games. Of your desperate for nvidia for some reason get a 670. Better yet wait for the AMD 8XXXs in a month or 2.
you quite literally hurt my head with that SSD.... a Samsung 840 pro would be the top of the line for consumers since you seem to have no reguard for price. And a minimum of 128GB. Preferably 256. You'll want games on it to
