NEW xmas build, would love some input =) - Page 2

I would say you could even drop down a quality 650 if you wanted to save some cash.

I just looked today, a 650 can run dual 5870s without even breaking a sweat.

If you can afford a RIIIE and love a fast booting computer, get a 40GB SSD along with a 640GB-1TB drive such as WD blacks or Spin Point F3s for fast storage.

Get the HX850 or XFX 850W Black Edition. Better build quality IIRC and is probably cheaper as well as being more appropriate for your system, even 570 SLI,

Go with 570, better performance. I love ATI/AMD, but drivers have been terrible for 5800 CF so I'm sure it'll rub off on 6900 drivers a bit too.

oh, i will definitely be waiting for sandy bridge to come out............and still buy an i7 950 xD which will be even cheaper but seriously, i just can't see the advantage of waiting for sandy bridge.

And nipping at the heals of the 970 performance wise...

If you insist on the 1366 socket, look into the rampage iii formula. the r3e is really only advantageous for quad sli.

Boot times aren't that special because most people either leave their computer on, or turn it on in the morning and turn it off at night, so booting isnt a big deal.
I could spend the same amount of money on an intel SSD that is 128gb or i can spend it on a few 300gb 10k rpm drives in raid. What seems better?
Anytime you see your HDD light come on, whatever you're doing could be done quicker with an SSD.

Bootup, launching programs, loading pages, ect. SSD's speed up what is usually the slowest component on a computer. The hard drive.

My intel SSD made just a large a difference in daily use as Overclocking does.

You need to do a little more reading if you think that is the only Advantage...

I love how you said it made the same difference in daily use as overclocking did. Last time i checked overclocking the cpu doesn't really make that much of a difference when it comes to normal usage, it only changes in games where it is used.
To defend why i don't need an SSD, I play a game that uses hard drive to load, the faster the drive the faster you load, I load before everybody else in the game, so i have to wait 30+ seconds every game i load, so why would i want to load even faster so i have to wait even longer?
