you think bf3, mass effect 3, need for speed, and metro 2033 would fit?
Maybe a few will. I would maybe get hybrid drive for games. That's basically my plan; ssd for os/applications, hybrid for games, and hdd for files, movies and other applications.

So should I just get a bigger hybrid drive instead of ssd?

maybe this?

depending on how much room you need, you could keep the ssd and just replace the hdd with the hybrid drive for a total of 2, or have all 3 if your going to be using ~1tb of space


those are basically the same few boards with more features packed on with the higher prices, possibly speed increases with the better boards but not by much. pick the one that fits you needs and could do sli, and fits your price point

Right now, the Mushkin Enhanced Chronos is $120, so about $1/GB. I have one and have had zero problems with it.

Is the hybrid hard drive much faster than a regular 7200rpm hard drive? and are both of those boards able to sli and if so how can you tell?

Why are people recommending to get an even more powerful GPU? Sure, the GPU is the first thing to go in terms of future games, but there's no use in getting a card that is more powerful than what you need right now. No gpu out now will last 5 years unless computer games don't advance at all. No GPU from 5 years ago can hold much against current games and resolutions. What was current 5 years ago? 8800gtx/ultra was KING of KINGS. What can they do now? Not a whole lot.

OP, don't waste any more money buying a faster GPU if the one you selected will serve you well for the next couple years. But do understand that no GPU you buy right now will last for 5 years given how tech. and games advance.

Hybrid hard drives are mostly a gimmick--the benefits that are claimed with the NAND cache are not realized beyond a standard HDD for what most users actually do. You might notice the OS and related functions are a bit more snappy, but when it comes to other things--like loading game levels--you won't really notice much of a difference vs. a HDD.

Yeah I guess 5 years is really pushing it/non realistic frown.gif. So then I should just stick with the 570 and say with a regulars HDD and a solid state drive?

It is 7200RPM vs 10000RPM, so yes.
