All SATA versions are backwards compatible. The only thing you may encounter is a software issue which is very rare.
Oh thats sweet to know, guess i learn more the each time im here which is a good thing, thanks guys! guess now i dont need to give myself the hassle wonder in confusion whether it will work or not when im gonna order a HDD / SSD in the future. =]
Getting a new more powerfull GPU and a SSD for system drive will make your PC feel brand new and swift
Personally I'd have a look at Radeon HD7850 or HD6950 2GB (a bit more budget oriented).
haha yeh lets hope so~ thats what my original plan was, since im not that hardcore with my machine that require like crazy intensive usage for video editing or anything, like if i have the money and time i wouldnt mind going crazy about it with the whole beast mode with SLI and clocking the crap out of it but the most i used my gaming rig is mainly casual few hours of gaming or Designing thats about it, so just want a good powerful build within budget =] if you get what i mean? lol
oh yeahh i see, thanks man! definitely will have a look into those, yeh im just youtubing and seeing review and seeing what i can get the best out of the 2GB range, within budget as well. dont really wanna throw too much money into the machine yet, consider my 5770 aint that bad still play games well just not max out with all those AA stuff on =( so 7850 shall be something ill keep an eye on. but honestly the Asus HD7970(HD7970-DC2-3GD5 )3GB DDR5 925MHz OC DVI HDMI DS PCI3 that one hell out of beast tho, really love the Asus direct CU II graphics card, but my concern with getting those series is apparently they are huge and require alot of power and i think my psu wont be able to handle, and the fact also is they huge so after awhile the card seem to tilt and bend? since not enough support on the other end or something where i research awhile back...sigh
thanks for the infor on the sata backward compatibility =] definitely getting few 2TB HDD since they on $120 sale atm =]
I don't think that major overhauls are needed until the next gen consoles lift the graphics ceiling in some meaningful way. I'd take a HD7850/70 2GB and look to Broadwell in 2014 for a totally new build.
The 5770 is not an awful card and there is nothing major in games that is coming soon it can't run well enough. If you have patience, give the GTX 670 a month or two to put some downward pressure on the 7950 and in turn, the 7870. If the 7950 hits ~$325 [and it's only $55 away now] I'd jump on that.
true on that! im even suprise PC graphics are better than the PS3 hence my just sit there collecting dust lol but yeh graphics is not not as good yet hence im not bothering with a full mobo/psu/cpu change over since my mobo started off as basic so cant really do anything special upgrade unless i change the mobo first so yeh guess when time comes i will =) and yeh like i mention early my 5770 is not a bad card consider its 2 years old and still doing well on alot of games and run well. yeh im just getting information now to see and decide which graphics card i should be keeping an eye on and maybe in 1 or 2 ill do an upgrade meanwhile im gonna take the tips you guys offer about the whole window on the SSD and others on a separate HDD which will improve alot so gonna do that first. =)
