The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 1266

post #12651 of 23525
Alright. So got my sexy case. Fans are purchased and are being delivered/processed I have some extra money coming in from recent sells or future sells and I am debating on what I should be doing next. So I come to the trusty CM Case Thread biggrin.gif

SSD: As much as I want one for World of Warcraft, other than that its overly expensive and I do not know how it does for other games.

2nd Monitor (That actually matches): I thought about getting another 23' Acer to match up with my current one. But with the 470, it will idle pretty hot with Dual Monitors.

SLI 470's: I have been thinking about getting another 470 to SLI. I know that with a single monitor, it is not really worth it. But I can go dual if I wanted to as well.

Fan Controller: Primarily for looks since I do run my fans full speed most of the time anyway. (Hard of Hearing) but the option to turn them down to prolong the life of the fans sounds good.

Now with those options, I can probably grab 2 at this time. I am really leaning towards SLI and a 2nd monitor.

What do you guys think?

I would say SSD first, especially if you haven't fiddled with one before biggrin.gif

Besides the load times on World of Warcraft and Windows, what will it do for me in other games like Crysis 2?

All i can think of is faster loading times really, other than that, you don't have to worry about the HDD physically failing lol.

SSD has made my life soooo much easier. Windows loads in a flash, even with all my start up programs. Games that are on that hd(eq2 only for me) load super fast, zoning is faster. Programs start up the instant i click on them now. For me, and SSD was one of the best decisions i have ever made.

It annoys me somewhat but I have a hub so I don't need to fiddle so much with it.

Once a decent 128 gigger becomes available for less than $100 I'll go for one.
