My build is complete, would like some opinions - Page 3

post #21 of 26
I would get a 280X or 770, they are perfect for 1080p. Or wait for 290 custom cards!

If BF4 is gonna be your primary game, you might as well go with AMD and hope Mantle will be worth it.

But yeah 670 is faster than 760 (more cores). And 770 is faster than 680 (faster memory).

I would get a WD Blue 1TB HDD instead of the Seagate one, I have a few friends whose Seagate Barracuda 1TB drives have failed on them. Same speed, more reliability with the WD in my opinion.

If you use that way of thinking, everything past a plain beige case with super basic mother board, cheapest CPU, and 4GB RAM, would be a luxury. The original question was for opinions. If the OP was only looking for what is the basic items to build a computer, he/she would have never asked for opinion. So, you don't think that a SSD is worthwhile item and your opinion is respected. I on the other hand do believe that it worthwhile.

If you're buying Windows 8 or 8.1 then I don't think an SSD is necessary, my PC (WD caviar blue primary drive) boots up in about 15 - 20 seconds max with this HDD so an SSD is probably only worthwhile for Windows 7 which has longer boot times. But it wouldn't hurt getting a small 64 or something SSD for OS and some basic programs

That is a fast boot time for your computer. It's been determined a long time ago that SSD are typically much faster then non-SSD Hard drives. The OP may not require an SSD if he is not looking for fast boot and load times.

If you read OP his max cost is at or near $900, and he has spent about $810. With the change of GPU to a 770 GTX or r9 280x toxic, it will put him at that cost. Again he can add a SSD later it is not imminent to get it right away. Best to just change your GPU and add a SSD later in the year - you do not need one right away, you can always add hardware, whereas if you get the 670 + ssd, you will have to spend another $250 for either another 670 gtx to sli, or another $3-400 for a new single GPU card.
