Budget Build Gurus: Please recommend me a rig for decent gaming/design for under $450 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
i would say drop the SSD. it's too much for the budget. you can save for it later. when you partition your HDD just make sure it's equal or smaller that the SSD you will buy so when you ghost that partition you could copy it to the SSD.
