Well I have one 128GB SSD, but I need some space. I can grab another 128GB but don't think 256GB will last very long.
post #14 of 19
I'm running 128Gb SSD + 2TB HD. If i upgrade for space it will be a 256Gb or maybe bigger SSD. SSD prices are much better in comparison to 2 years ago.

A 256GB SSD will last you a long time unless you decide to use it as a storage drive.

For the hdd. Grab the one which is cheaper and marked as "green" will dave you some power. As for ssd, get another 840 pro and run them in raid 0. Win 8 has trim for ssd now so its good to have ssd in raid. And if there is any saving left. Grab corsair h110 hybrid watercooling. You may aldo consider getting 290x or ref 780 instead of lightning. Cos lightning only shine when you overclock it hard, which in ur case can be a waste. Ref 780 will save you some cash and 290x will give you better performance(if you not going to change psu and oc your lightning. Cos normally lightning req 1.21v to reach 1250-1300mhz core clock)

I'm thinking about going for the lightning because I want to have the ability to overclock it later on when it don't max games anymore.
And by then its probably a good idea to get a new PSU anyways.

Do you still think it's a bad choice for me extommy? it's only 100$ difference between a 780 ref and 780 lightning.
I want my build to be future-proof.

When it's coming to the HDD I'm thinking the same as you, extommy. I will buy a decent/cheap 1TB drive and maybe go for one more 840 pro and run it in raid later on.

Thanks for all the replies, guys! Really appreciate it.

Well the lightning is super, im running 2 of them and cooled by water. Since now lightning has released new batch with Hynix memory (which is very good), you cant be wrong to get a lightning now, but make sure you check it carefully before you decide to keep it or not (like ASIC quality and if its Hynix or elpida)
Dont worry about WD or Seagate and stuff, just get a green 1tb. Im using seagate green, it just never die and yeah, get another ssd and raid them, you will love it.
New PSU is a must for you, get a new 750 - 850w. Dont be cheap on PSU, when it goes bad, it can damage the other components.
About future proof: your i5 + H110 +MSI Z87 Mpower - GPU : 780 lightning/classy, 780 ti (optional 290x) - 850w 80% PSU (The Mpower mobo + lightning is just too sexy to have and Mpower is really easy and strong board to OC and i would prefer Mpower over Asus, the one you chose). Those will last you for a while, else just throw in another lightning/classy when needed

I have been drooling a lot at the MSI Mpower boards, haha.
It cost more than the ASUS, but I have decided to go with a cheaper HDD so I guess I can spend that extra money on the Mpower board:D
I can get the 2x8GB BallistiX for the same price as 2x4GB, so I guess i'll take that too!

I'm really looking forward to getting this! Going from the computer in my signature to this will be sick.
I will use my Akasa venom at first and see how that will work out. It fits the color scheme, so that's nice.

Need to get some sleep now, later!
