Here is a good newb question for ya...when putting my OS on say a smallish SSD and putting games on a HDD, need i do anything to the HDD before installing the games? Or can i just install and run the games from the HDD while the OS is on the SSD?

And, if you say the velociraptor is not what i need to go with, what HDD do you recommend?

No, you don't need to do anything to your HDD's, unless you mean getting 2+ and doing RAID 0 and changing install paths (really the basic stuff xD)

As for hard drives, generally the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB is recommended, though I've seen other recommend WD Caviar Black as well, but F3 is the more competent option

What is your price limit? If you have one.

Here's one I built really quick. If you can spend more you can get another 570 and SLI. Also I wasn't sure of your price limit but since you were willing to spend $500 on a single SSD I'm pretty sure you would be OK with this.

How much do you think my sig rig is worth? I have a buddy at work that needs a cheap comP to game on and wants to buy mine. I could use the cash for the new build. I don't know what my rig is worth. What would you say?

I think my buddy will buy the old rig for $350...that is for everything.

here is a proposed sandy bridge build
https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/M...px?ID=15253312
hopefully it works. i made the list public.

i still need to determine if i want to go with the i5 2500K or the i7 2600K. And not sure which mobo yet either. also on the ram, should i go 2000MHz or 2200MHz? not completely decided on the video card and i am also thinking about going with 2 of these cards in SLI or would that be overkill? also not sure if i should go air cooling and what cooler is best? or water cooling is very interesting to me, always done air...just not sure what is the best bang for the buck WC system.
any comments are appreciated. i plan to build this in a couple weeks once i determine all the components i want.

The Newegg WishList link you posted only works for you so it's kinda hard to comment when we don't know what parts you're planning on.

Its funny I am in pretty much the exact same situation as you are... my system is similar to yours, and I too wish to upgrade soon.

Personally I wanted to just get like a i5 760 with a Sabertooth or Maximus Formula board and be over with it, but I think it would be better to just wait for SB to come out... its only a few more days at this point.

I am probably going to get a i5-2500k with an Gigabyte UD_(3,4,5) mobo with 4gb of DDR3-1600 and at minimum a GTX460, more likely SLI 460's or maybe a single GTX570.

But my advice at this point would be to look to the new parts seeing that it is so close, if you have more patience than me you could wait for Ivy Bridge like everyone else is saying but by the time Ivy Bridge comes out there will be something else coming out the year after that and it will just be an endless cycle of waiting.

I'm definitely going sandy. Not gonna wait any longer. Sorry my newegg list doesn't work and I will post here what I'm looking at going with.
Case- probably a lian li but not decided because I think I'm going air cooling but may also go with a rasa rx240...

I5-2500k

mobo- not decided and will check out how they all perform before I decide. Gigabyte or asus board I'm thinking.

Ram- I was thinking of going with a ddr3 2000 kit but i see alot of you going 1600. Why go with 1600 when the board supports faster ram? I will go with 2x2 gb kit.

CPU- thinking gtx570 is the winner here

Psu- probably a seasonic x 850. Is this overkill? Even with watercoolong?

I'm currently on a 22" LCD 1680x1050 but would like to upgrade to a larger with higher res soon. Not sure which moniitor is best.

I will probably use this rig for 3 years before next build.
