Should I move from 1600 to 2000? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
What size are you looking for? 30GB? 60GB? 90GB? 120GB? More?

/agreed with all of the above, glad to hear you're convinced! Above 1600 really doesn't make that big of a difference for gaming...and, like an above poster suggested, if you're concerned you should run memtest.

SSD recommendations: I really like my Vertex 2, though it wasn't subject to the new SandForce controller 'debacle'. That said, the Vertex 3's specs are really nice. For my next SSD, I'll be picking up a Crucial m4: it's all-around speedy, reliable (at least, I haven't heard many negatives at all), and reasonably priced.
Also, don't feel bad about buying an SSD right after an HDD: just use the HDD for storage. More than 60GB isn't really necessary for an SSD: just keep your OS, browser, and a few games on it ^_^.
(yes, speed goes up as you get to higher capacity, but there's cost associated with it too...)

Enjoy! biggrin.gif

...unless you use steam, in which case it's all-or-nothing. I've been waiting to get an SSD until I can get one large enough to store most of my steam games + OS. Guessing it'll have to be a 200GB, so I'll be waiting a while longer.

Do you have DDR3? I dont think going from 1600 to 2000 would be huge. But if you have 64-bit I would recommend getting at least 4 gigs of ram. Newegg has great sales, I got 16 gigs(4x4gig) for about 100. They had 1866mHz 16 gigs for under 150. If your os can handle it no reason not to go big, ram is so cheap.
