Of course there isn't. A more accurate term would be "future resistant", but we all know what concept is being conveyed anyhow.

I would give you 4 years with an SSD but it does depend on how quickly GPUs advance

I'd recommend 240+ GB for the solid state drive. You can definitely make 128 GB work, but it will get crowded very easily.

I do recommend a ssd, as it makes a TON of difference.

Thread Starter 
I've decided to go with the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD just to have that extra space if needed.

So do i have to do a clean install of games and OS? what would be the best way to go about doing this, i have alot of games installed, and my OS is set up the way i like it already

I found cloning my hd did not align the ssd correctly. So I personally found it best to just reinstall

You can just move your steam folders over. I can't remember the details, but google it. It's pretty simple and pain-free (especially writing to an ssd). I'd recommend a clean install of windows, though.

1. Get a descent SSD.
2. Your PSU isn't top-notch. It is good enough for your current system, but if you ever plan to run crossfire, you would have to change the PSU.

Clean install is strongly recommended. Do it once, do it right.
