Wait, no SSD? :O

Since you already bought the case and PSU, there's not much to do

Yeah, I sort of got carried away and wanted to start buying parts. I was actually thinking about getting one for Windows, care to recommend a cheap-but-decent SSD?

On a side note, acting on impulse usually never works out well. tongue.gif

The crucial M4 SSDs get good reviews and i would reccomend one.
But unless you are in an emergency to turn on your pc i see no point. while mine turns on 30seconds? i pour myself a nice cold glass of coke a sit back and relax for a second.

Yeah it all depends on if I feel like spending anymore money once this is all built, which is very unlikely. I mean come on, if I had a SSD then when would I make time to go to the bathroom? tongue.gif

I would go with an evga card over the gigabyte. the 670 ftw is about $10 more and as a company i would go evga over gigabyte everyday. A good but reasonable ssd if you want one is the vertex 4 from ocz. good build though and good luck

great SSD in my opinion. while i see your point with the boot up, i still like installing a lot of my small programs on it so they open up at the speed of light (browser, itunes, and a few other random ones).

I decided to do that. Not just because of brand, but because I work for Walmart and they have the 670 ftw. I'll get my 10% discount. biggrin.gif
