My new Intel rig. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I meant you may loose maybe 1-200 MHz on the CPU, same for RAM depending on motherboard. I don't know why but for some reason I just thought you were trying to get the max possible overclock you could get with conventional means (or w/c). I'm talking the difference between 5.0 and 4.9 GHz. Granted some still do manage those CPU speeds with the 16GB kit, I just was always under the impression that it took much more luck (and tweaking)

EDIT: And the multiple SSD thing is a bad idea really because it would be tougher to manage the files on your computer i.e. it would not be worth the effort, since there would be no real speed increase.

so just get one big SSD for windows and games and one HDD for misc files? any recommendations? I'm planing on having swtor on the SDD along with windows. I'm sure its going to take up a large amount of space, also the wife wants the sims and that takes up a fair amount of space.

As far as management, is that in terms of how the computer manages and interacts with the files or user interactions.

as of right now I have 3 drives in my system 1 sdd and 2 hdds, one Hdd being from an older computer with music files on it.

as far as user management its not to difficult, everything downloaded is automatically place on the large hdd as far as program installation I just have to make sure everything goes on the Hdd as apposed my SDD which is close to full with windows and other files on it.

Basically, I'm asking, is it just harder for the user? or harder for the computer to manage the files?

So after doing some more research I find my self in a conundrum. I can't seem to find that perfect mobo for ocing, and still trying to decide on the cpu, gulftown or 2600k? I figured I'm just going with 256g ssd. what to do, so many options.
