Ok so now I'm confused Stick with the 6870? or EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1372-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card. Price is $189 for both.


I think New does returns/exchanges on Video Cards.


Also any help on the SSD?

You're fine! The HD 6870 is a beast. I don't know why dislike people it. The only single gpu card that even has real time performance gains for gaming is the GTX 580 and you're better off getting crossfire HD 6870s for cheaper than a single 580.

As for the SSD, OCZ RevoDrive 3 240gb. Get that.

Ok Good I'll keep the 6870. I was leaning toward the revo drive. Was just concerned about how hard it would be to setup. Havn'nt built a computer in years. But I know my way around one.

Just so you are aware, the Revodrive and other SSDs like it, do not support TRIM. It's because the Revodrive is basically like a dual GPU video card. It's running in RAID 0 and SSDs do not support TRIM in RAID.

I know the speeds are ridiculous, but the problem is it'll slow down I believe over time. So maybe buying a slower SATA 3 SSD maybe better?

Research it and decide, because I'm unsure at what rate it slows down at and how long it takes. It may be moot and by the time it's as slow as SATA 3 SSDs, they'll be cheaper and faster.

Also, quoted for Maximum PC:
Quote:
The Revo ain’t perfect. You still have to install drivers manually via Device Manager, and load them with F6 if you’re going to install Windows to the RevoDrive. Some motherboards require a BIOS update in order to boot from the Revo, or only allow installation in specific PCI-E slots; check http://bit.ly/gRCZzT for a list of those motherboards. Like its predecessor, the RevoDrive X2 lacks support for the Trim command but does include garbage-collecting algorithms that prevent it from getting too slow—indeed, after heavy use the drive was still humming along quite well.

This however was in a review for the RevoDrive X2, so I'm unsure if the same applies to the RevoDrive 3. Posted just in case during the building of the PC this happens, you'll know roughly what to do.

I thought the Revodrive had garbage collector built in. I assumed that meant it wouldn't slow down. I really like intel and their utility but Not sure how much slower it is from the the others.

Yeah, it does, which should help, but I'm pretty sure it just decreases the rate. I doubt the Intel one is any faster. The RevoDrive is fine, was just making you aware of it not having TRIM in case you knew more about the decrease in speed and the rates. I can't imagine the speed decrease being that much.

Ok after all my research I went with the M4. Crucial seems reliable and there firmware upgrades actually increase performance rather than just bug fixes. Plus $374 vs. $574 is $200 savings. I just don't understand the whole garbage cleaner thing and how it affects the drive performance long term. I also have had poor experence with raid setups and perfer to go simply with a single drive.

Thanks all for you help.
