Help with $1100 Budget build - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Point taken. I use NVMe to distinguish from standard SSD. Of course, they are all SSD, but how would you distinguish them in the normal conversation? ACHI? Then you'd have to say ACHI SSD or ACHI HDD. I prefer simple life.

As I already said my setup was not for gaming. So why would I even have 950? Because I went with Xeon. I had to have some sort of video card. So I might as well have some decent card (that's is just in case of course). I think missed the whole point on why I chose this setup. But then you were never informed what I was trying to make here anyway. It's easy to make points over the shoulder since you have your own setup in mind. But this is my setup with my computation need. There is a very good reason I chose Xeon over i7, NVMe over SSD, and not going with something higher than 950. My point to jump in this discussion was simply allocation of budget could have been tweaked. We can't all have our dream machines, can we? What's your budget for your dream machine? 2K? 3K? I prefer the optimal distribution of the budget to maximize the outcome. Going back to the original posting of this thread, I merely suggested spending a little more on NVMe wouldn't hurt. I have done enough NVMe setups versus SSD setups to know that the booting time alone justifies going with NVMe over SSD.

It's just as simple to say NVMe and AHCI as I did. It's a lot more confusing when you refer to NVMe and SSD as separate things when NVMe is a solid state drive.

I must have mislead you at some point into thinking I actually care why you chose your components. My apologies. My entire point was your wants/needs don't really have an impact on the subject of the thread. Your suggestion to make sacrifices elsewhere to spend twice as much on a SSD just doesn't make sense in the scope of the original proposed build. It would be like suggesting a GTX 1080 because it performs nearly twice as well as the GTX 1060. I realize the numbers aren't the same (~$400 compared to ~$100) but the concept is the same. No one is going to lose their patience loading Windows from a Samsung 850 EVO. I can promise you that.

It's a force of habit. But the same thing is true when ACHI simply means the mode of operating and doesn't distinguish between SSD and HDD. You are probably used with ACHI vs. NVMe and I have no problem with that. For me, I used SSD to distinguish with HDD, and if you say ACHI, my brain automatically compares to RAID. It's really no biggie.

I would personally go for 16gb of ram, more and more games are using more ram so...
