Changing games from an HDD to an SSD makes no difference in FPS at all, unless you count the few games that stream textures constantly from inactive storage.

I have bf3 on the ssd and some how it feels smoother, maybe its just me tho

Good stuff Elite! I think the best and easiest software to use to help you OC is MSI's Afterburner.

I've also found that the Heaven Benchmark is a great and accurate way to test for stability.

You just contradicted yourself by saying this: "unless you count the few games that stream textures constantly from inactive storage."

Owners of slow harddrives can expect stuttering when playing open world games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. , Oblivion, Skyrim.
Owners of fast drives will experience seamless gameplay when travelling large distances

You need an exceptionally slow drive to even begin to notice it though. Never had any stuttering on my WD Blacks. The SSD made no real world difference other than instant loading screens.

I wanted to mention in this thread that I ran an Athlon II x3 450 at stock 3.2 ghz with 7970 for a few months. It played MOST games fine at 1920x1200, but did have trouble on dirt 2 for some reason. It would recieve even higher framerates on 1920x1080 I am sure. I feel that a 7950 and athlon II x3 combination would be suitable for someone who wishes to squeeze the value out of their cpu purchase and who does not care about loading times etc, but just wants to have fun once in a while playing a few games. The athlon II x3 is not that bad ata ll. It atleast has the same memory controller was the quad cores, and will do 1600 mhz ddr3 with tight timings, unlike the II x2's.
