Upgrades for my AMD system

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got a 150 and two 50 dollar visa gift cards from the holidays and I just bought a new monitor but I'm not sure what else I could buy to help out my system. I was looking at a SSD, right now its a 64gb corsair nova but i dont think 64gb is big enough for my liking so what other upgrades do you guys think I should get?

Get an SSD. You can use your 320gb HDD for games and stuff.


or a new video card. 6870

yes, 64gb is definitely too small, I'm kicking myself for not going 120gb.

i'd drop the SSD to a Mushkin Callisto. it's a pretty good SSD according to this review. why drop the SSD down?

to get another 5770 for some nice Crossfire action. that's the option that makes the most sense to me. you could also sell off your 5770, get your original SSD, and use the change if any on a 470 / 6870

I was thinking of a 120gb ssd but its kinda costly to me. I wanted to get another 5770 but I could not find my HIS 5770 egg cooler version and it drives me nuts not to have matching cards. I'm looking at a 6870 also but waiting for some non reference cards.

But it is well worth the money. I have 2 120gb SSD in Raid0.
Example
I had 1 120gb ssd drive in my laptop. My laptop was beating the crap out of my pc with WD black 500gb drive.
