Sig Rig Upgrade

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
What should I get for my rig next? I was thinking about FX 8350, 256gb SSD, or a new blu ray drive (because my current one only reads and I would like to burn cds and dvds). Also what do you suggest? thumb.gif

your cpu is by no means bad, so i would go with the ssd. you will probably notice the largest increase with it. install your os on it, and you will still have plenty of space for games and programs.

I think the obvious choice would be a SSD. Your rig is pretty nice otherwise and you'll definitely notice the difference.

Tough call between the SSD and the processor. You could get the FX 6300 and get the blu-ray drive with the money you save
*EDIT* If you do go for SSD's get 2 120gb and run them in RAID 0. Double the speed almost and has 240gb

I was kind of leaning towards the drive right now, since it's by far the cheapest and then looking into an SSD. thumb.gif

Definitely SSD! thumb.gif The 120 is still a decent deal at the moment on some sites so based on timing I would go for the SSD. Other than that your rig is already nice as others before me have said biggrin.gif

A 6300 is more like a side-grade then a upgrade. I would go with either the Blu-ray or SSD or a SSD and a DVD burner.

Sorry im not familiar with AMD processors, Im an intel guy. I thought it might be an upgrade because of the higher stock clocks, but again, I dont know AMD's that well.
SSD probably a better idea anyhow.

get an SSD, it will be a night and day difference, don't think just do it.
post #10 of 15
A FX-6300 would likely be a downgrade over your 1100T especially with it at 4 GHz. With the Bulldozer architecture, you need the extra cores. My 8150 was slower than the 4 GHz 1090 I replaced until I hit 4.4 At 4.6 its a decent upgrade. That being said, I dont regret my purchase at all because I enjoy overclocking and playing with new processors and I had a lot of fun cranking on this thing. If youre bored with your X6 and want a new toy then by all means pick up a 8320. Itll be fun to overclock and push and at the end of the day, itll be a bump in CPU horsepower for you.

So I say for a "fun" aspect, the 8320 would be a nice shiny new toy to play with but from a "practical" aspect, a SSD would make a nice addition and make a big difference that you would notice right off the bat.
