Craiglist people are unpredictable and guess what no warranty so why not just buy new and if there is a problem i can contact the company for replacement.

I won't try sell you on saving money, but I'll respond to the rest of your post: Warranty? Contact the company for replacement? It's a metal and plastic box, for $10.

Also with the SSDs i'm not to sure i understand how they work?
Are they a replcement for a HDD because they are faster or can you run both in conjuction and save certain stuff like games, programs or anything to the ssd and they will load faster? and if so what kind of difference does it make with loading. 2x, 4x,8x ? biggrin.gif
SSDs make it a lot faster, and smoother. It can't be put in numbers.

its hard to explain the difference in words but if you went from a PC with an HDD (especially a 5400rpm one) and put an SSD in it, its like having a whole new computer. honestly i would recommend one, even if you had to skimp elsewhere to fit budget. anytime you have something that loads off of the storage drive (IE loading games/maps/apps) they will load faster. what i would do is use an SSD for windows and your most used apps (youd be surprised how much fits on a 60gb) and use an HDD for media and stuff that isnt HDD intensive. i used a 60GB SSD for windows, BF3 with all patches which take a ton of space and just about every benchmark/software utility any computer enthusiast would need. i didnt need more room until D3 needed to be installed.

Thank you for the information regarding the SSD, In the near future i have already decided to install one in conjuction with the WD 500GB hdd.
But for now the my setup will do just fine. thumb.gif

The go with an i3 2100 and a P67 (cheap but still relevant) board until you can afford a 2500K. the i3 2100 beats up on stock phenoms pretty bad in gaming and 3d stuff... sure you can overclock the phenom to compensate but they aren't the best overclockers imo.

That ECS board is out of stock and it's missing a PCI slot Lol. But thank you very much for taking the time to look! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135288&Tpk=H61H2-M2%281.0%29

Looks great. Your're right, you should have went for at least a p67 board for future overclocking with a K series but overall I think you will be very happy with that build.

i3 2100 + 8GB RAM + 7850 = diablo on max using maybe 60% gpu, grats!
