Questions-
That (budget) SSD is good enough? I am looking for least expensive 30gb SSD
http://www.ebay.in/itm/Kingston-30GB...item3cb9ec9c78

Is PSU sufficient ?

And is z68 has some benefit over p67 considering SSD. I prefer Asus z68 because it will be PCIe 3.0 supporting....

I would get a 64gb m4 they are not expensive to buy and tend to have good deals on

You'll be fine psu wise as for the ssd it's worth the money if you buy it large enough for you os and a few games that would benefit quicker load times , for the rest it will not benefit having ssd it won't make your internet faster lol.... Basically depends if you want to spend 300$ on a ssd or get the hd caching with Z68...

@ryanbob1234 well its suck in India being a gamer. I would merely get Crucial here. Kinston, corsair and samsung pl check ebay.in for me :$


@night197 truthfully i have no idea how z68 works with SSD ? I was just copying some config points from ready made builds similar to mine- well off course they were without SSD.

As far as config is concerned i am confused in between Asus p67 and z68

Graphics is Asus GTX 460 or Asus 560.

I referred sticky post in SSD forum which says to effectively use 40gb SSD by moving unnecessary file to mechanical drive using regedit commands.

Will it work for me?

Can i expect a bit performance gain against non SSD setup with kingston?

Well if you get the Z68 you can use a 40 GB ssd as cache for your HHD setup (i Recommend a raid 0 setup) therefore your ssd will act as a giant buffer boosting your hhd performance over time thats the cheapest option.. Personaly I suggest you get a 60 GB or higher ssd to install your os on it.. Then you will notice a big difference right away and with that idealy you want a sata 6 SSD from either kingston intel (my favorite) or corsair... Ocz has the higheswt failure rates so I would avoid them.

@Night197
so using p67 and ssd there no performance gain? It seems i should drop ssd thing. costing me without much outcome.


bro 60gb SSD is way way out of my budget. Perhaps i can sacrifice something more parts to buy 40gb from these 2 choices. Its India, it kinda sucks here.

I see a point that i do not want each and every software to run at blazing speeds even the games. Thats why i am choosing 6gbps mechanical drive than cheaper 3gbps. Just want good performance enhancement than the non SSD setup.

PS: i have no idea how z68 board caches SSD or p67 doesn't.

My first aim.
Asus p67 plus SSD. If board is not worthy for SSD then i will be shifting to z68. I never did video conversions z68 i what meant to do faster.
