I like the idea of it lasting longer smile.gif even if it`s only €10.

I do have two other external HD`s, but would you think that SSD (64gb) would be enough for Window`s 8.1(64bit).
I was thinking of just having the OS on it and the likes of Photoshop, just so it runs the best it can?

I would`nt be doing major rendering, just minimal usage I guess, I`m by no means a pro-designer, lol.

What roughly, would be the higher temps I should look out for, to avoid?

Well I`m using a crappy laptop that`s 17" for ages now and I`ve no problem with it, so a 21.5" would be a step in the right direction, I know most people would prefer bigger, so would I, but I`m really pushing the budget as it is, I can always look into that later on down the line.

64GB is no problem for Windows and Photoshop, but if you start putting games or anything, it will fill up fast. Windows is around 20GB if I recall correctly, and photoshop shouldnt be more than 2-3GB.

The i3 can handle temps in the mid 80*C. Of course, electronics last longer the cooler they are biggrin.gif

The issue isn't fitting the OS and Photoshop on the SSD, they will fit. It's that the Programs Files, Program Files (x86), and My documents folders will default to installing there too.
So you'll have to set up for or manually install any programs to the external drives and do the same for all saves (documents, pictures, spreadsheets, etc.). It can be done, but you'll shortly regret having to keep the small OS space cleared of stuff. You'll have to just think about the $$$ you're saving every time you have to mess around with saving and installing. I'd spend the extra $26 on the AData 128Gig drive or the $60 for the 256 Gig drive and avoid the headaches.

Is there a programme that would be handy to keep track of the temp, so I could have it on the desktop or something like that?

Hmm $26 or $60...might be worth it for sure, I'll try budget the 256 SSD... Try..

Thanks again lads.

For basics, I like to use CPUID hardware monitor. You can set it to open on boot.

kept it to the original budget of 600

i saw that the prices on the Z87 chipset have dropped

Just reading up on that motherboard and it`s not getting good reviews, I know I want to keep in budget, but I also don`t want to get something that`s really not that good.

I`m not to sure but I might go with this one that was mentioned earlier in the thread, if I keep reading bad reviews about it.

To Same money on the OS try and get a technet account and then get windows7 from there... this will save you a few ££ and then after 180 days you can rearm it or do a fresh install.

This seems like a good motherboard, I like the price to.

Just one question about the wifi, is there any difference in signal strength cause it does`nt have the antenna`s, or does it make any difference, are they all the same..give or take?

Edit: I think I looked at a different model of motherboard, this does`nt have wifi with it does it?
I need to have wifi on a motherboard, it would make my life so mush easier.

Yeah, I was looking at the pro version, duh...it`s a lot more than even the MSI motherboard I had, grrrrrr
