Its 40 dollars. If hes just simply using it for a boot drive why would he want to buy a 128GB SSD when he has a 1TB hard drive? I dont know; we dont even know if OP is using the SSD for anything more than a boot drive....

30gigs of space he has for the os if windows 8 uses 20gigs of space what will 8.1 use when it comes it maybe not enough space for updates and such thats what i mean

I'd save $50 and get a superior 7950 and spend $40 on 128 gb sp900

I would really like to keep an ssd for os and you guys r recommending 64gb+ ssd i will have to go for a 7950 or lower gpu and imo nvidia has better compatibilty with games no things like microstutter and all that (correct if im wrong)

if you're really on a tight budget, you could check out Neweggs 'open box' deals. I saw a asus gtx 760 for sale for $200 earlier smile.gif

Stutter should not be an issue with a single AMD card even then if you do plan to crossfire the new beta drivers fix that issue in most games. I suggest dropping to a 7950 and using the spare cash to buy a bigger SSD.

A 7950 is a better card than a 760 or 660ti. Max overclock the 7950 is better than a 670. So dropping to a 7950 is giving you a cheaper faster card.
