Fair enough.

In any case, +1 to the SSD recommendation. I recently upgraded from a HDD-only setup to booting off of an SSD. The boot and program load times are completely worth having to reinstall everything. Prices are approaching 50c/GB on the used market as well. Picked up my 128GB Samsung 830 for $70

I read about that too. About instaling windows in a single HD and all other software in the regular HD. It sounds interesting and sure will see how much more I would have to spend. However I must be able to afford the regular way of only having a single HD.

Is there any way you can return that i7? Personally I think you'd see a bigger performance increase from an i5 3570k + SSD + HDD than an i7 3770k + HDD. If you're just playing games, you probably won't need the HT that comes with the i7. Conversely, an SSD would noticeably decrease your load times in both the OS and games.

I wish I could but I can not. So how exactly is it better?

How is an SSD better? They're generally more reliable and much faster. A single SSD would beat out a pair of RAID 0 Velociraptors. Anything installed to the SSD would load faster. For example: I have an average nothing-special SSD in my laptop, and it boots from POST to Windows desktop in ten seconds.

The i7, on the other hand, has HT over an i5. However, games are not optimized to take advantage of the +4 extra threads. Usually the only realm you'd see a performance boost from when choosing an i7 over an i5 are CPU-heavy media editing applications, e.g. Photoshop and Premiere.

R31ncarnat3d, how many Gbs does you SSD have? Would a 32 GB be enough to install Windows 7 correct?
post #18 of 21
32 gb will do jus fine for windows ,
For the 3770k I would get. Better cooler these things put off a lot of heat .
I would get a ndh 14 that cooler will get you a good overclock
