    They're compatible yes, but I'd rather get the i5-3470 over the 3330. Also 64GB SSDs aren't really worth purchasing when you can get a good 128GB SSD for less than $100.
  2. Thanks for the quick reply! Is the 128GB SSD going to make a noticeable performance difference?

    It's not the performance that's the issue - it's the capacity. 64GB won't give you a lot of breathing room after Windows install, the swap file, and all your programs are installed.
