Getting new AM3+ mobo and ssd are these good?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have some money to upgrade my rig. I primarily game on this rig so looking for FPS mainly and load speed.

Here is what I have in my cart so far:

Asus SaberTooth AM3+

Antec liquid Cooler CPU

Adata 120 GB SSD

This comes out to a total off $369.97 A tad above what I wanted to spend but its OK. My curent HDD is loud and annoying hence the SSD.

If you can throw something together better that will net me more performance in games I am open to your suggestions. I always ask here before I buy.

Get Another HD 6850 for Xfire
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161384 = $139.99 + $7.56 shipping
Mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157281 = $129.99+ $7.56 shipping
Heatsink
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065 = 29.99

Comes out to $315.09+tax.No SSD in there as you already have a HDD with your games.You said it was annoying but you can always turn up the volume or use a headophone biggrin.gif If you really need a SSD then i would recommend this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148441

Then your total comes out to 420.08+tax.

I pulled the trigger already...I know Im impatient. However I switched it up some.

Got the 990 sabertooth

a corsair force 3 90gb ssd

and a antec water cooler.

Came out to like 320 ish

I really wanted to get another 6850 but I figured mine is good enough for now and I wanna see how the new AMD gpu's lower the prices on the 6xxx series if any.

Cant wait to not here this darn ancient HDD anymore. biggrin.gif

Honestly neither SSD are good (beside Crucial M4 of course). I recommend go to ebay and buy sealed Intel 320 instead. Really, both Corsair Force 3 and ADATA are not the best (or reliable SSD). In fact you kind of downgraded from ADATA to Corsair in terms of performance and reliability.
