If you check my choice of HDDs, my primary would be a SSD, while my second just storage.
So far I have changed the cooling from H50 to CoolerMaster Hyper 212 fan, the RAM to Mushkin Blackline 2x4GB at 1600mhz, and will pick the corsair PSU.
I was looking at:
Is the RPM not a bit slow? Does it make a difference when compared to a 7400 or a 10000 RPM?
Also, from the reviews the spinpoint (Linked above) seems to emit a click noise when being accessed.
In general, I am looking for a rig that is upgradeable (Hence the big HAF X), will run smoothly and last me for atleast 6 years. I picked hexa-core over quad since I believe that it will help reduce stress on the CPU and therefore lasting longer. Basically I want to be able to play graphic-intensive games for quite a while at high FPS. Also, what do you guys think of HAF X?
Thanks a lot for the help!
