I already bought my 7750 a few monthes back so it's still good and does the job, if I do not need a video card will be able to squeeze in the SSD i have listed, I have listed the i5 3350p because its cheaper and I already have 2 spare video cards in case something happens to my 7750. And one last question do i need anything special to have a 120gb ssd and a 300gb hard drive in together.
and how much is the difference of performance between the i5 3350p and i5 3470 if the only thing i am doing is playing games and is it worth it for $20 cheaper. The reason I went with the i5 was because as of right now I am rather CPU bottlenecked by quite a bit ( powercolor 7750 with an old amd athlon x2 255) and I don't want to be CPU bottlenecked anytime soon.
So far I have picked these parts already and was wondering what you all think of it, any advice on what i should change, and will a 500w be enough for later even if i upgrade my 7750 to a more powerful card.
@Groundrat I was reading and the P type processors are without integrated GPU's and that seeing i don't need a IGPU i figured worth it for $20 cheaper, and you say I wouldn't notice a difference with a i5 3350p and the i3 3220?
@bigcyco1 I chose this SSD because its 120gb, SATA III, and only $88 seemed good to me for the price and it was rated good on newegg.
